I am always trying to find ways to add hands-on learning experiences for our students. Many of the items I wished for provide opportunities for the children to move around doing interactive activities. I also am trying to introduce computer/technology opportunities for my students by integrating things like beginning coding to my curriculum.
I am a parent of a 1st grader and 4th grader. Their teachers could use anything from new desks, computers, product for the kids. Their school is a small public school, with many of lower income families. The teachers end up spending a lot of their own income on their students. These teachers have a ton of heart and soul! They would be Thrilled to have some extra money to spend on their students!

income and not exposed to good literature and worldly concepts. I would like to expose them to as much hands-on learning as I can to give them a well-rounded education and make learning fun! Winning would surely help!

I am a homeschool mom of 4 and we love Educents! The freebies alone have kept us afloat on many assignments and I love being introduced to different creators.

I absolutely LOVE Educents! I have homeschooled my children for 13 years now, graduated 3 children and have 3 to go. I'm so thankful for Educents. They have so many freebies that you could literally homeschool for free. I bought Times Tales from them and my children ages 11, 9, and 5 all learned their times tables in no time!

I'm a homeschooling mom of two boys ages 8 and 6. I am also pregnant with our 4th child and I am struggling with ESRD (end stage renal disease) and have been on dialysis for four years. Homeschooling has been the best option for us due to my boys learning styles and personalities but it can be costly. Winning this contest would help us out greatly and remove at least one of the financial burdens.

Mrs Stoever teaches 2nd grade in a district that is severely underfunded. She has 25 kids in her class working with books that are outdated, computers that hardly work and limited classroom supplies.

Hello, how can you put a persuasive story in 400 characters? Much like everyone else, education is so important to our family. Homeschool chose us, we used public for a short amount of time, it did not work for us.the school nurse failed to follow instruction given to her by a medical specialish which lead us to home school our family of 4.
My students are wonderful. They are full of energy and are very motivated to learn.
They love to explore and discover new things every day. They learn best through hands-on activities. All of them have different capacities and needs, therefore they need different kind of materials to explore and learn.
Funding this materials in my school is very difficult.
Education today is ever evolving and changing, but that does not mean that all subject matter is to be shoved to the side. I am of the school of thought that in order to teach a child, you must teach the whole child. You have to spark curiosity and excitement all while giving them the mandatory curriculum. My wishlist fulfills the dream!
I'm a Home-school mom of two. And although I would love to win and could really use the things I have on my list, please read down through and use your vote to help someone else who needs to win more than I. :)
I am working at a small rural school. If I was able to win, my classroom would receive many electronic items needed to propel us into the 21st century. First, we would have all new laptops loaded with all the applications, and a traveling computer cart that would give us a place to charge them all in one convenient place. We would also install an interactive SMART board, complete with clickers.
We have been homeschooling for three years now. This would be such a blessing to our family. We have a very limited budget and don't buy much when it comes to new fun things. So I know how much my children would love to have new fun things to explore. This year we will have three officially doing school. They love to give to others and will give before they ask for something for themselves.
I have been teaching for 34 years! I am asking to move to a Developmental Kindergarten classroom I know I will need a TON of hands-on activities for this group of students, and I can't wait to provide them with a developmentally appropriate learning environment. I thank you for your support of my students and the importance of a developmentally appropriate education for our youngest learners.
New to Homeschooling and I would love to set up a very nice classroom for my girls. They are 8, 6 and 3. Decided to homeschool due to my 3 year old having seizures (epilepsy). I want to try to provide her with as much normalcy that I can. I would love to be able to get the supplies and set up a classroom for the 3 of them. I want to be able to get the best curriculums for them.
As a first year teacher, I did not have much experience with classrooms and was not aware as to what happens behind the scene. This first year has given me much experience. Working in the south bronx I see that many of these students lack supplies. I created my list based on what I saw my students needed. It's not just for me but for my students.

I teach a small, self contained classroom with grades K-6 of Exceptional Children who fall in a behavior spectrum of some sort (often with other challenges as well). I give 110% to my class, and often a large portion of my salary as well. I would love to enrich my class' learning with wonderful supplies.
I am a third grade teacher who teaches in Fayetteville, NC. I teach at a title 1 school, with many students coming from families who need assistance in affording the basics. I want to provide my students with the best education I can offer. I would like to be able to provide supplies for my students and fun activities that would help prepare them for their future.
My kids love science and building! The yearly subscription kits would be a great addition to their science education. And, the games will be a wonderful practice for my son. Teaching at home is very rewarding, but can get expensive. Thank you, Educents!
We are just finishing our first year of homeschooling and it was the best decision we ever made for our son. He struggled in school with learning disabilities, anxiety and just falling though the cracks. Now I can teach him in the ways that he learns best - with a hands-on approach. It has been amazing to see how far he has come in the first year and we look forward to the future!

I am in my 7th year of teaching at a low-wealth school. Most of the children are from 1 parent homes. These children needs so many different thing which I can not afford for them. I have only 1 i-pad in my class, I use this to do testing on. I have plugs in my room that are 2 prong. I need more 3- prong plugs to all the electrical equipment. Any help would me greatly appreciated
My classroom is the school library. This space serves the entire school. Here students create in a MakerSpace, & seek out quiet work areas with comfortable seating for reading. Students collaborate on technology as they learn to navigate digital content & print resources. My dream space would accommodate all needs & create an open, inviting atmosphere that benefits all students.
I am a 2nd Grade Teacher at a Title 1 School in Fayetteville, NC. I have a wonderful group of students, who are very eager young learners. I want to provide the best education possible for them, during their second grade year.
We are going into our 4th year of homeschooling. So, in the fall we'll have an 8th, 6th, 4th, & 1st grader. That means 4 different grade levels, personalities, & learning styles. The kids really love math & science and really anything that involves STEM. It would be great to win our wish list to set up our classroom with more STEM curriculum!
These items will help me as I work with my Resource students. Our funding is limited and these are great resources that my students would love to use. I would love to use these resources with my students. Thank you for your help and support.
I am dreaming of starting a musical playgroup for toddlers. To date this type of playgroup can not be found very often if at all. Please vote for e if you can understand my wish to start early our toddlers' love for music. Thank you for your time and vote.
To be honest, I would be happy if I could get enough votes for $500 just to provide for my homeschool classroom. I would simply love nothing more than to be able to afford multisensory lessons and items to assist me with bringing forth my child's full potential. So, I state kindly, to please vote for me.
What a blessing it would be to have some of these resources in my classroom so that my students could enjoy and learn from them. There is never enough time or money to give the students everything they need and deserve but this would greatly help the process!
We are new to homeschooling, we have four children. At this point I am creating a curriculum of my own for my children; that span three different grade levels, with free tools I find online. $10,000 would allow us to be able to purchase manipulatives credible second language, and music curriculum, also books and supplies for our program. This would make a huge difference in our children's lives.
I just completed my first year of teaching. Throughout my college career, I learned how to educate using lots of interactive technology (SMART Boards, interactive projectors, etc.). However, my district currently does not have these interactive elements in place in regards to the whole group instruction. I would love an interactive projector or a SMART Board.
I love when my students have time to explore and learn through play, but I don't have much to help inspire them. Winning my wish list would allow me a chance to further share my love of learning with my kinder kiddos!
The teachers and staff at my daughter's school (Elm St, Walpole) do a wonderful job with the children. Many of them buy materials and items for their classrooms. Please help me in providing a variety of wonderful educational, musical and STEM related items! Thank you!

I serve a highly diverse student population within my classroom that includes ESL and Special needs students. Please help me attain the supplies that my students desperately need to reach their academic goals. Thank you for your support!
I work in a school who has a wonderful and very deserving group of children. Coupled with the children we have a tireless administration and faculty and staff who go over and above to get the money to fund the needs of the school. We are moving toward a technological society and we are using antiquated equipment that
does not allow the students to reach their optimal potential.
I am a single mom of three of the most amazing kids. I homeschool all three and enjoy teaching them everyday. I also run a business watching dogs. It's not always being a single parent, I can't get help from their father because he had past away years ago. But I do know he would be proud of our kids just as much as I am.
Our kids are very interested in music. Our daughter is interested in starting a singing career and is working hard toward that goal! She is also interested in learning to play a few instruments to enhance her performances.
We are a homeschool family about to wrap up our second year! My son has really flourished! He has been asking to learn Spanish and how to play the piano.

So please take a minute of your time for me and my children.

We have a large homeless population of students and families who are seeking in school and after-school opportunities for their children. It is our goal to offer as many enriching experiences as possible. We are considered a Title I school with a not so great ABC grading score. Help us reach our goals!
Our classroom is in a rural school from a farming community. We do not have buses so everyone walks. We are a single district and do not have the resources that bigger districts can afford. Our families are hard working down to earth people. As a second grade we do all we can to allow them the things they do not have the privilege of at home.

I am Visual Arts Educator in NY. We are a high needs district. Unfortunately due to yearly tight budgets it can be difficult to supply my scholars with the necessary tools to complete various projects. My students have amazing talent that can be overlooked because we do not have the tools or materials needed.
I am graduating on May 1st and its my birthday! In my first career I was a kindergarten teacher assistant of 15 years and stepped up to get my teaching degree.

We are a close homeschooling family who lives in Gaspe trying to build our own self sustaining home and garden with no help. We are adding a classroom to our home this year and this would really help to add to the room . It would be wonderful to have so many new items to add to a new room.
I am a homeschooling mama to 7 awesome kids. Four of my children had a difficult start in life before they were mine, and as a result have multiple, severe learning disabilities. Our school district was unable to provide my kids with the help they needed, so I chose to teach them all at home. We are very short on resources! Help us win our dream classroom!
I am a 4th grade teacher in a large school district. Our kids spend most of their waking moments together in our small confined space, and a dream classroom would mean enhancing our education. I would love the opportunity to create more room that promotes promotes creativity and collaboration, growth and development, and entices students to be at school everyday, excited, and ready to learn!
By no fault of our own, we live in a very rough, urban area known as Brightmoor. However, we are just a hard working group of young Detroiters! We have character building to focus on improving our emotions then, English, history, science, math and fitness. We are reading about Miracle's Boys right now because many of us can relate to the story. We'd appreciate ANY donations!
My school, which is located in a small rural community, has been chosen to become a STEM elementary school. As a Science teacher, it excites me but with worries about the lack of materials that I have. Please vote for my classroom and we can ensure that students at SMP will have a great background in math and science.
My classroom is an Early Childhood Special Education room with students ages 3-5 years old. I am trying to update materials in my new building. The school is a high poverty public elementary school. I would greatly appreciate any votes as winning these materials would be so helpful and the kids would love them!!
I love teaching Pre-Kindergarten, but it can get very expensive! Teaching children how to care for things takes a toll on the classroom items. The money would be spent on books, learning toys, and classroom supplies that help the students have fun while learning. Thank you for your vote!
I love my job, my school and the families I work with. Unfortunately, our school doesn't have a lot of money to purchase new items for our classrooms. This is such an awesome opportunity. Please vote for me - $10,000 will make a huge impact in supporting our student's learning.
We work with AMAZING students with autism who are super heroes in our classroom every day! These tools will help our super heroes grow and learn about their world through their senses. It will also help these students learn how to adapt and find some sense in their daily environment. Materials will be shared with 4 classrooms serving students ages Kindergarten through 8th grade.
Dear Friends and family, please take time and vote for me so that I can win materials for my classroom to better enhance my bilingual students learning.
Queridos Amigos y Familia, por favor voten por mi para poder ganar materiales para mi salon para mejorar el aprendizaje de mis estudiantes. Thanks. Gracias.
Taking on homeschooling while working a full-time job has been quite stressful but very rewarding! Please help support my family's homeschooling endeavors by voting for us in this contest! Winning would really help my family provide a better learning experience for my daughter Maia. I would appreciate your help in making this happen! Thank you!
I am teaching boys with the age range of 7 to 9. I would love to offer science, history, and music to them. We don't have the money at our school to provide fun and interactive learning materials. Your vote would mean a lot to me and the boys that I teach.
I home school my exceptional needs grandson O'Ryan he is six years old. He has cerebral palsy. We are a one income family so this would be awesome to win. He loves school his favorite subjects are art and reading. He is nonverbal but he sure tries his best to tell you things. I so enjoy home schooling him and watching him accomplish things that the doctors said he never would. Thank you
My awesome student's all have Autism. My goal is to build community around Autism while showcasing my students skills and abilities. Our school uses STEM lessons and activities to build social skills and Autism Awareness. Our class invites other classrooms to our room to share in learning about science, technology, engineering and math.
Our third grade classroom is in the highest poverty county in southeast Kansas. Due to high-stakes testing, our focus has been extensively on reading and math, but our students are missing out on science and real-world applications! We want to transform our classrooms into STEM-based, literacy-integrated classrooms. Please help us get supplies so our kids can be true 21st Century learners!
I am starting out in my first year teaching, and I want to provide my students with many manipulatives to help them during the learning process. However, I know I can't fund it on my own. Thus, I hope I can be selected to win funding for my dream classroom.
We all know students in the inner city do not fair so well in school. The school 2 blocks from my home is no different. This is the school my kids went to until I had to move them to better their education. I would love to win these books and donate them to this school. Please help me to help our future by helping these kids!
We are a blended family with seven children. Five of which are home schooled. Winning this contest would help us out greatly in our journey for a fun and rounded education for our children. If we win this contest, we can instead pay for activities such as dance or music lessons, sports activities, etc rather than supplies. Please come back daily to vote for us. Every vote counts!
Hello Friends and Family,
I love teaching science. My goal as a teacher is to make the most memorable learning hands-on experience for my scholars. I am trying to win more materials to continue to nurture my goal as an educator. Please vote as many times as you can to help me get the most votes to be awarded with my dream classroom.
I have been teaching live online science and math classes to middle and high school homeschool and school students for five years and I absolutely LOVE it! I am looking to get a much-needed new computer to keep up with the changing technology and to purchase software to improve my live classes and curriculum for my online students. I'd be much obliged for the assistance and so would my students!
I am a 6th grade teacher, who has taught grades K-11 and understand the importance of a 21st century classroom. Our students are depending on us, as teachers, to send them into the world prepared for the jobs are awaiting them. Including STEAM, Science, Technology, Art, and Math is the most beneficial skills our students require for high school, college, and the work place.
Please Vote for me. I would at an alternative school and I want to provide career and college readiness programming to these students to help unleash their potential. I want them to know that they too can go to college and be successful.
HI, we are a family of 9, 2 boys and 5 girls. We (I) have been homeschooling two years. We are a single income household. With several of our kids interested in science and music. Thank you Educents. Thank you to everyone who votes for our family. Also, Thank you to those who are just voting regardless if it's for us. God Bless!!
I would love for you to support me and help me get my wishlist.I teach Spanish to almost 700 students in Chesterfield, VA. I always try to change my lessons every year and that list will make it possible.
Thank you for your votes.
MY CLASS IS A FAMILY! :D Teaching in a combined classroom for the first time; 2nd/3rd grade, has been a new challenge for me, but the hardest part is keeping students engaged in independent learning time while I work with other students. With lack of funding, I find myself spending more to make my classroom what I envisioned. My dream is to keep the fun flowing for those independent learners! :)
As homeschoolers, we could all share access to the tools that we don't all have access to. Thank you for a great way to pay it forward in a community that has a shortage of hands on learning items. Homeschool children aren't given state funds like traditional schools and this would be a great way to help those in need in my community.
I am a homeschool mom with four GREAT kids! I want them to be able to learn all that they can and really succeed in life doing something they love! I stay at home to raise our children so we live off of one income so this would help immensely to have some super fun learning tools! Please vote for me!
I am a home school mama on a very tight budget. Since my husband had a stroke in June of last year everything as been very tight. My kids do attend a virtual school called connections academy. But on the side to help them I do my own homeschooling. There is still alot I need to make my homeschooling room a dream come true.
I am a School Speech Therapist who works with many special needs students. Sensory and organization is key with many of them. I strive to give my students the best that I can to build up and encourage them to go beyond any expectation. Over the year, items get very used and new items are always in need to continue our learning and growing.
In this day and age of testing, testing and more testing, I try to squeeze in activities that are developmentally appropriate for my kindergarten friends. I believe that it is so important to create a love of learning at this age. If we can make that happen, then they will be more successful. Help me get the hands on materials that our schools will not purchase for us anymore!!!
I am a Kindergarten teacher at a Title 1 school. I love my students and we all work hard through out the year. It is because of their "Yes I Can" attitude that I made it as an Arizona Rodel Foundation Finalist for 2015-2016 school year. Please vote for our class!
Please help us achieve our DREAM classroom. Most of this is curriculum and it would be a life changer for us as it would provide SOOO many resources to us that are simply not in the budget.
Please vote!!! Thank you! :D
Ry is a very active and twice exceptional learner. He is asd and spd. We have been homeschooling this year in order to keep him engaged and to run with his obsessions. We would love to have a great amount of learning tools for him. Right now most of what we have is free downloads and he really could use this. I will be adding to his wish list as I go please vote for us.
I am working toward getting my classroom involved in more STEAM/STEM activities as well as building creative writers. My products are geared to creativity and building these skills. Legos are a great storystarter! Please vote to help my 5th graders as I prepare them to be independent thinkers as they move on to middle school!
Just help me make my students' learning lively and adventurous. They need it and our school can't afford any teaching resources. I keep preparing my own, but I have limited time and abilities. We want to learn and be happy :-) !!!
Help me change the mindsets of my students. Vote for my classroom to win supplies. I want to creat a math toolbox for every student at David Ellis Academy West. This toolkit will give each student manipulatives that set them up for success.
I operate a home daycare with early learning and preschool. I don't qualify for funding and or grants as registered centers do, as I am a private. Over the last 2 years we have grown beyond my expectations. We would love to win the items that we have picked out as a group and would make the most of it. It would be used for years to come for playing, learning, and growing young minds.
Our Preschool is working to update and help improve education and the quality of materials in the classroom for the students. By entering this contes your votes can help us out! It’s easy to help, all you need to do is vote for our classroom. Another way to help is by sharing this post to help us win! Thank you for your support, and for helping us update our classroom.
I am a teacher in upstate New York. I currently teach 4th grade (this is my first year in fourth grade!). I have many great ideas that I would love to have in my classroom in order for students to be comfortable while working.
I am a 1st grade special educator. I love my job and wouldn't do anything else! I love watching my students grow and learn and watching the little "lightbulb" moments I get to witness everyday. Please help me equip my classroom to help my students achieve! They have lots of obstacles, but access to high quality materials and instruction shouldn't be one of them!
I'm a 2014 Teach For America corps member teaching 2nd grade at a charter school in SE Washington, DC. Next year, I'll continue to teach as a TFA alum. The majority of the items on my wish list are those that my students may not have access to. Looking forward to another great school year with my civic leaders as they make academic & social-emotional growth! Your vote is greatly appreciated :)
Thank you, thank you, thank you for voting for us! We are a very rural Title 1 school in Missouri and appreciate your vote! Our funding is scarce and our school is located in a hamlet so community partners are hard to find as well, so every little thing helps!
We are a homeschooling tribe with soon to be 6 little learners. We have been schooling with various things we locate over the internet, but to have a set classroom would be amazing!
The Tribal Learners are:
Reggie Lee (the baby)
Please vote for us so we can continue to thrive and strive for greatness!!!!!
I work at a Title 1 school and my students don't have many real life experiences to relate the content that they are learning to. If I win, I would purchase resources and materials to make their learning more meaningful and easier to relate to.
This is an amazing opportunity that I am asking for your help!
We are in dire need of school supplies and educational supplements for our homeschooling program. Educents is doing an amazing contest where the MOST votes can win some very valuable and much needed educational supplies that would be wonderful for Jackson and his special learning needs.
Hi!! My name is Sherleen and I work at a Title 1 school. My classroom is low ratio ESE Pre-K. Is my first year teaching in the USA so I'm in need of materials for my classroom. ESE need to be challenged and experience new things everyday, and that can be costly to a teacher!! Please help me, help my students achieve their goals with your vote!!! Thank you so much!!❤️
I work at Frederick Douglass Elementary in Overtown. I would like to win this prize to give my students a space to forget about their troubles at home. A place that is well decorated and clean. A place where everything is taken care for them. A class and community that serves as their safe haven.
I am an ESOL teacher in the Rochester City School District. My students travel to us from difficult places, many of them are refugee students. They come from diverse backgrounds, and traumatic situations but they never seem to let this get in their way. They are the most resilient, humble, kind, appreciative and loving students any teacher could ever have. I am humbled by them everyday!
I am a first time teacher and I have really enjoyed watching their minds grown and the kids beam as they grow.
I have noticed that when they are doing activities like build blocks they seem to learn more, than when you give them a piece of paper to learn from. This puts their imagination to work
I am a Homeschooler to my special needs Autistic child.He gets in home therapy and we are living on a budget with one income.I have been buying books at the thift stores and garage sales.This would be nice to win and a dream come true for our Son.
Please take a second to vote for me so that I can continue to enrich the lives of others. Teaching requires the most education for the least amount of pay. While I would love to just keep buying things for my students to help them learn, the reality is I need my hard earned dollars to support my own kids who are in college. So please vote!
Our school is a non-profit school for low income students. Our students struggle in big classroom so most of them attends our school as part of a government funded program. They don't have much at home especially the younger ones. My wishlist will enable me to teach them different things without breaking the bank or charging the parents extra. Thanks for helping!
I am a special education teacher in San Jose. I have wonderful middle school students who have skills as low as 1st grade and as high as grade level, and English language learners who are just learning English . I would love to win these great classroom supplies and materials. My students would be so happy that they had new things that were current! Thank you!
It seems like public schools will forever struggle to provide basic text and tools to support the needs of all students. Meanwhile, teachers do whatever it takes to get things done using innovation and clever contests! My students battle emotional and behavioral issues, that coexist with their learning disabilities. We have to step outside of the box to find tools and resources to learn!
Hi everyone! I'm looking to decorate the classroom of my dreams! It's such a wonderful feeling to have students and visitors walk into my classroom and say: "Wow!" "That's nice!". I would like an opportunity to make this happen, so I need your vote! :)
Hi, I teach fifth grade in a classroom of energetic, impressionable, intelligent and awesome students! My kids are in need of some fun and educational activities for inside recess. We also need some enrichment activities for reading and math.
Will you please consider voting for my class so we can win these fabulous teaching supplies?
