I would love to inspire my economically disadvantaged students with the tools and creativity they may not receive outside of school. Please vote on my classroom and help me to encourage my kids. Thanks in advance!!!
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 have been teaching for 21 years. I would love to give my classroom an update. Teaching is my life and brings me so much joy. Touching kids lives every day feels great. Please vote for me!! What a blessing this would be! Thank you for your support!
As a homeschooling family with six children we are always looking to upgrade our curriculum. Winning this giveaway would allow me the ability to fast track my children's education -- even my teens would be thrilled with the curriculum I selected in our wishlist!
I'm here b/c my daughter can't attend public/private school for health reasons. We use as many "free" resources as we can, or I purchase at a discount. My wishlist will get her thru HS. And, It will be a blessing to win. I have read some of the entries. And, I see there are others out there are as deserving as I. So, I challenge all contestants to vote for one another. I will. Will you?
I teach Spanish classes with little to no Spanish books. Languages are not considered an academic class however many college still need students to take 1-2 years of a language in high school. I am looking for small readers at least 1 class set.
If you can take a minute to vote for us we would really appreciate it! We would love to win and stock our classroom for next year. There are so many fun things we want to learn about and would love to have these supplies to make it easier. Games, videos, and hands on experiments make learning more fun and it sticks with the kids when they do it themselves. Thank you!
I am going to graduate from Angelo State University in May and I have some great ideas for my classroom, but unfortunately my eyes are bigger than my wallet! I will need some help getting my new classroom set up! Please help me!
My students mean ALOT to me and there's nothing more rewarding than giving them a quality education through various strategies and activities.
Please vote for our class so that I may continue to provide "our students" the necessities needed to work hard in receiving a great education.
I teach Science to middle school students with no Science budget from the school. All of my materials in my classroom are either funded by fundraisers that I do or the small donations I get from a few parents with kind hearts who also love Science. So vote for me because I or really my students can use the materials to learn more Science, and I have a cool Star Wars selfie picture.
I am finishing up my 3rd of teaching SPED students and each year am gaining so much more confidence and insight! Most of my students need hands on activities to help them with their Reading and Math. It is hard to find materials that will activate their minds and allow them to grow and learn!!
I believe there is a super-hero inside of everyone waiting to come out. I teach my students to understand that super-heroes are ordinary people chosen to do extraordinary things. Please help me to equip my classroom with the tools necessary to help me better prepare my young super-heroes to take on the world!
I love teaching young minds and planting the seeds of love for learning. Not only is the teacher important but what we offer our children. A great classroom could really feed their interest in learning.
These are only 2 of the children I work with : My 17 year old son (Yes, this is recent!) and my 9 year old niece. Both are special needs and eager to learn! My niece can not read. She truly needs lots of 1-on-1 and my sister has asked to take her on again. We just need lots of resources to help her learn while having fun.
Winning this would greatly help my childrens education. Ever since my husband suffered a traumatic brain injury and I became disabled we have had to budget most of our money towards living expenses and medical needs. I have home schooled for the past 9 years to give my children the best one on one education I could. Please vote for me and share to others. Thank you.
These little people are the reason that school has been an amazing journey.
While not every day starts with smiles, we enjoy learning in an atmosphere that builds on our strengths and strengthens our weaknesses.
We have lots of learning before us with our journey in homeschooling just starting.
Help us provide these (and any additional) kiddos with environment filled with what they need!
I work in the classroom at Children's Hospital of Illinois. We tutor hospitalized children and provide school supplies & new books to our kiddos. We are a non-profit so we don't charge students or schools. We provide supplemental activities to school work received to provide fun for students while they are hospitalized. We would appreciate your help in providing opportunities for our students!
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?
This is a new venture for my family. We have only been homeschooling for the past year as a whole. I have always been very driven to make sure they are well-learned and well-behaved children. They have never disappointed me so I would love the opportunity to win something nice for them. With our budget, we have to use as many free resources as I can find and get very creative. Thanks for voting!
Every since I was a small girl, I played school and acted like the teacher. I would cry when I had to miss school because my passion to be there was so strong. I love seeing the faces of children when they accomplish something they have been struggling with. When you place a vote for me, you are also voting for these children to be successful in their elementary school years, which is vital!
I love being a homeschool Mom, 14 years of it now :) I have some pretty fun items in my EduCents wishlist: the whisper phone & toobaloos for reading practice during quiet times, all the Magformers sets they have (my kids fell in love with these a few years ago at a local childrens museum and would love to have all these sets!), the anti-coloring book, guitars, and more!
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 have just started homeschooling my 13 year old son Harvey, who after a term at high school was feeling under pressure and completely overwhelmed at the pace of school. He has dyspraxia and speech delay which means the messages from the brain to his hands i.e. motor skills are very slow. Harvey's mental wellbeing and happiness is paramount to me. We would ABSOLUTELY LOVE it if we won. Thanksx
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 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.
Our district has moved towards and inquiry purposeful play based philosophy this year. To be successful I need to redo almost everything in my classroom. I am wanting to create inquiry tubs which require lots of money as well as other big ticket items. Please vote for me and help my students!!
Developing and growing a Montessori classroom is a never ending expense. Our students would love more access to science experiments. Your vote can help us reach our goal to grow the generation of scientist!
What a wonderful gift this would be for any teacher!!
I know what an absolute blessing this would be to me as a homeschool mom of four! Even though my dining room is my classroom, I know I could have my curriculum inventory furnished nicely :) Thank you!!
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.
This is our first year Homeschooling. We have had a very good year and have enjoyed our time together. BUT, we could use some hands-on materials. We homeschool our GreatGrand children, two 3 year olds, one 6 year old, and one 10. So, as you can see, we need some variations in curriculum.
Good luck to all who are entered.
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!
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 would love for my students to win this, we are a Title 1 school and we never have nice and new educational items for our kids. I have all mismatched tables and chairs. I use milk crates as storage containers. They never have enough supplies. This would be an opportunity of a lifetime.
I teach students age 7-11 in a self-contained special education class in a Title 1 school. Three-quarters of my students are at or below the poverty line. My students and I would love new materials for our classroom! Please consider voting for us.
I am currently in my second year of teaching. I teach 8th grade Humanities in Rockaway, NY. I LOVE what I do and could not imagine myself doing anything else. My kids are my heart and soul. I want it all for them. I hope to give them a quality education and life skills. My kids deserve the best and I need to meet their varied needs, I hope you can help!
The students in my classroom would greatly appreciate you voting for our classroom. We work hard every day learn new concepts and modified materials along with manipulatives work best. Please vote for us.
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.
We homeschool and I have four kids from teenager to toddler. With my wishlist I could be set till the last one is done and ready for real world. The school system failed us with my youngest son who is a little special needs. I have found my kids strengths and weaknesses since we started. Thanks for your vote.
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!
I homeschool both of my daughters. I would love to win this so that we could get any curriculum that we want. There are so many amazing curriculums out there, but many of them are way out of my price range. This money would help for years to come.
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
I work as a teaching assistant at East Syracuse Minoa high school. Our district has an amazing opportunity for some of our students. Four of the autistic students type through an iPad to use their voice. Being an assistive typer (one of five) at the high school is an amazing experience. The use of the iPad to express their true thoughts is remarkable. Thank you for this amazing opportunity.
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!
We are a Title One, 100% free breakfast and lunch elementary school in Norfolk, VA. Having available resources for our students would help promote growth and success. Help us reach our greatest potential with our future. Thank you in advance for voting for our class.
Please vote for my classroom to win. My students are the most deserving group of children; they challenge me and themselves everyday and I am proud to stand before them as their teacher. If we win, we will use the funds to upgrade our classroom computer, purchase new books, folders, binders, pencils, and notebook paper to further our educational endeavors. Thanks in advance for your support!
I work at an awesome school and we have the best teachers. They are so nice and love to make a difference in a child's live. One of those awesome teachers is Mrs. Washington. She love her kids and we as a school would love to win stuff for our classrooms. Like paper, crayons and good thing for the class. Thank You
I need votes to win lots of cool stuff for my classroom. My students are all at risk but are also at a school that is challenging them academically to break the poverty cycle in their lives. Please help me help them by voting for my wishlist. You can vote every day from now through May 6.
Hello I am a stay at home mom of five, I will be homeschooling all of them. I am already schooling three. This would be very helpful and give me the assurance I have what I need for all of my children to learn to the best of their ability. thank you to all that take the time to vote, I really appreciate your support.
I'm working as a behavior therapist and a teacher to kids with developmental delays, ASD and ADHD and I believe that toys, when used in an interactive, positive and fun way, are among the best tools in helping all children grow intellectually, socially and emotionally. SO please help me help these extraordinary students to become the empowered individuals they're ought to be by sending a vote. :)
Homeschooling my child is my most important goal for the next 10 years. If it takes a bit longer than so be it, but I want the best education system that will help her succeed in real life as school was difficult for her to thrive in.
This has been a very trying year already. My husband has a chronic illness that came back into full force and now I am looking for work and I am trying my very hardest to support my husband and my children through this trying time. This would be a dream come true because I know that through the upcoming year my children's education will be paid for. Thanks so much!
Vote for me because I LOVE providing exciting, fun, & cutting edge technologies for my music students! Instruments & technology are costly investments, I would love to have financial help so that I can purchase xylophones, glockenspiels, drums, recorders, iPads, SMARTResponse technology, & much more! Please vote for me so my students can have all opportunities to learn!
Our school Lady of Grace Preschool is a community-serving institution, one of the few in the area that combines a strong Christian foundation with high-caliber academics. We count on our community for support; we are not a state-funded institution. We would be delighted to earn the support of others to continue to expand our academic offerings for many years to come.
I homeschool two of my children ages 11 and 7. We moved to Honduras in 2007 and in 2011 began our homeschool journey. Having some funds to fill in the gaps we experience living abroad would be so wonderful! I would like to add things to our school to enhance their learning. Specifically for science, technology and hands on learning.
Our school is considered a neighborhood school and many of our students live near the school. 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!
I have two special needs kids we adopted out of foster care. I homeschool with another mom who also has special needs children. Our children have multiple disabilities and two are terminal and had to be taken out of public school due to our schools being unable to accommodate the smallest of our children's needs. Winning these supplies can allow them to reach their fullest potential.
I have been a teacher for 21 years. I have always worked in title 1 schools. Each year we have to prioritize what we can buy and always put off the "extras" until we get a donation or I just spend my own money. That still only provides a little bit more, not everything the children should have. I would love to provide my students with as much as they deserve - the world!
Motivating the Unmotivated Readers!
How can you say no to a great book if your room is filled with them? A classroom library assorted with areas to read and stuffed animals and special furniture just for the readers. Who wouldn't want to read? My passion is to find that just right book for each student. I would love to create the perfect atmosphere for them.
Mom of 6...teacher to so many beautiful babies!! I am in year 3 of my teaching career. My students and parents are my life! I live in a small, close community with limited resources in my district. Our future depends on today's learners. Vote for me so I can brighten today's young minds!
I’m a 1st grade teacher with a goal to set-up a Maker Space at my K-6 school. Our students love to design, create, and learn through hands-on activities. They need a special place where they can come in to plan, collaborate, build, engineer, problem solve, and be creative. Please vote for me to make my dream a reality. Our students are awesome kids who truly deserve this experience. Thank you!
Please vote for my classroom!!!! These beautiful children would love to be spoiled with your generosity! By voting for us, you are helping to provide children with authentic experiences, creative way to express themselves, and hands-on tools for learning!
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!
I am a K/1 teacher in Compton, CA.We are a low income dist and need as much help as we can get.Teachers are putting much of our hard-earned paychecks into the classroom, rather than into our own budgets.I would love to be able to get these to use in my classroom and spark that love of learning these children so desperately need!Please vote for me and help me accomplish this goal.Thank you.
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!
Hello everyone! I teach America's youngest (and some of the most vulnerable) in the federal Head Start program. I pride myself on a desire to create educational, fun, hands-on environments that makes learning valuable even to the youngest minds towards a lifelong journey.
Hello everyone!! I am super excited about this opportunity. Giving students a chance to learn through hands on experiences and activities. My classroom is filled with busy minds and hands ready to explore and learn. Im always looking for activities and toys that are developmentally appropriate for the future leaders of america. I look forward to you investing in the future of america.
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.
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. She continues to keep a positive attitude and deserves to be recognized for all she does for our kids.
I am a homeschooling mother of four, and I never say know to a chance for a good deal! I just want the best for my children.

Thanks for reading this and I hope you can help me to help my children learn all they can! God bless and thanks again!
I teach all subjects to my wonderful special learners- from social skills to art to reading I would love have even more supplies on hand to make their journey in education more enjoyable. My classroom is a place to grow as I have a multi aged classroom.
I a woman with a disability that allows me to be at home, however I find it important to teach my children at home while earning a degree to teach more children with disabilities. This winning could enable me to give my students more adequate teaching tools and materials and give me an edge to teaching my sons who struggle with reading to excel. Thanks and God bless:D
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 teach Graphic Design, Photography and other arts to high school students, who are taking an art class for the first time in their lives. I would like my class to be more comprehensive & have enough supplies for all 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 teacher in a county thst is 80 percent African-American ,10 percent Hispanic, and 10 percent Caucasian. Many of the students are from low income families where basic needs such as school supplies, snacks, and books for enjoyment are a neccessity. I would appreciate your vote to help my students feel motivated and confident about themselves and a love for school.
Thank you for viewing our wish list. We are preparing a preschool program for children with Autism, behavioral needs and disabilities, as well as low income families. Winning these items would support our program stocking the classroom and being able to reduce the cost to our families.

He loves school his favorite subjects are art and reading. He is nonverbal but he sure tries his best to tell you things.

Our area schools are decent but overcrowded. We enrolled our son in FLV but we are not happy with the testing standards in our state. Our daughter will be going to 1st grade. So this will be my first year doing homeschool "solo". I am so excited to teach them away from a computer. It makes me proud to be able to be part of a supportive homeschooling lifestyle.
Teaching is the most rewarding, enriching, humbling and awe-inspiring experience. I am a Kindergarten teacher and would love more than anything to be able to offer my students the subscription kits, science and maths resources that I so often drool over. Good luck to everyone:)
Thank you for looking at. My post. I currently teach 9th grade in suburban Atlanta that is Title One. There things I need to help my struggling students. I have some students from disadvantaged background and I need to find a way to help with mentors and things for my kids in class. Thank if you vote for me
Teachers need to get students excited about learning again, and re- interested in learning. Having a classroom filled with new products that incorporate learning, and gets the students involved in their own learning will help achieve this process.
I am switching positions with in my building next year and we are very limited on technology. I would like to have classroom computers and other devices available to my students as learning aides. For struggling writers I would like to be able to use a speech to text app and that takes the technology to do so.
Hi, my name is Tim and I'm an online ESL (English as a Second Language ) teacher. The majority of my students are from Taiwan and Russia. I will be moving to China this Fall to teacher English there and winning this contest will help me buy items for my students in rural China. Thanks!
Century Middle School is creating a one of kind Makerspace in our school library. We have finally opened our space, but we need so much more!

I run a Reggio-inspired early childhood development center in Park Ridge, New Jersey called The Valley School. I have always loved using a hands-on approach in the classroom, allowing for the children and teachers to experience things together and learn at the same time.
I work in a PK-2 elementary school. Many of the students come from homes at the poverty level with little or no access to technology. I would like to provide my students with iPads and computers to assist in their learning and facilitate differentiation in their learning.

I work as a lead teacher in a preschool classroom. I work hard to provide my students with the most enriching learning experiences I can offer on my limited budget. My kiddos are bright, active and love to sing, dance and be creative. Every day I see them growing and becoming more school ready. I truly care about giving my class the best I can every day.
I am moving almost 2,000 miles away from my friends and family to teach first grade this August. I know that funding is low in Arizona and want to have as many manipulatives and supplies to help my students learn. I can only put so much of my own money into my room, and having my wishlist granted would help immensely! Thank you for considering voting for my room!
I am a homeschool mom of 3 children. We homeschool on very limited amount of money. Our classroom at this time is our dining room. We would love to be able to have a separate room for school, with bookshelves, desks, maps, charts etc. As most public & homeschool teachers know books & supplies aren't cheap. This would help our school so much.
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.

I am homeschooling both of my daughters. Winning would give them opportunities they otherwise wouldn't get. My youngest daughter has Sensory Possessing disorder and I have added lots of items for her that would help her throughout our day. For my oldest daughter I have added music items since she has been asking to learn an instrument.
Thank you for your consideration.
I teach in a Title 1 school where over half of our students struggle with poverty. We need materials beyond just books. Being able to do hands-on experiments would allow my students to learn through real world scenarios. Please vote for my class so together we can help them get not only excited about math and science, but also about becoming life-long learners!!
We are a brand new Homeschooling Family. Educents has helped us begin to build our resources. We have loved using lapbooks, Life of Fred & STEM activities.

Teaching children with Autism has been such a rewarding career. The students have taught me how to view each child as an individual and not just a student. I continue to grow as an educator and a person each day. Remember: Autism is different NOT less!
I'm a first grade teacher. It is imperative for our students to have access to technology. Many times 15-20 devices are shared between multiple classrooms and they are not available. I'd like to equip my classroom with electronic devices so that my students will always have access to them . Please vote to give my students the best chance to be ready for their future education. Thank you!
Kindly help AL Fekr Khanah STEAM team getting all of those wonderful materials to keep our educational programs at acceptable fees. Why? We aim to help our kids take better education as they missed a lot of wonderful opportunities outside our education system.
We believe that even small drop of water can break large stones by hitting them day by day.
It has been an absolute pleasure teaching at St. Margaret School for the past 16 years. My 7th and 8th graders are such creative and caring young scholars. I am so excited for this opportunity to help enrich their classroom experience. I am also the Student Council advisor, Math club coach, and National History Day advisor.
I love teaching special education and finding resources is hard enough to find activities that they enjoy and are learning. I have found a lot of great resources for me to use in my classroom and I know my students will learn! Please help vote for me to get these great supplies for my class!
I am a special education teacher at Idlewild Elementary. I teach in a self-contained classroom with small student teacher ratio. My kids abilities range from moderate to severe. Some have physical disabilities as well. They are great kids who enjoy coming to school and learning. They will always try their best and never give up.

Thank-you , your vote is well appreciated
I teach in an inner city school district where most of the curriculum is outdated, serviceable and missing manipulative tools for the students to use. 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 am not a mother by nature as i have no kids of my own, but my kids at my school own me body, spirit and soul. They are such little oaks of righteousness and soak up every encouragement, instruction and question with such passion and zeal. They deserve your votes--not me, but them because i believe in them,who they are and who they can be--help me build that bridge
I teach 3rd grade at a Title 1 school in a community that is high poverty. My students deserve to have supplies that will help prepare them for the next level academically and socially. With supplies on my wish lists I will be better equipped to provide engaging and meaningful opportunities for learning. It takes a village to help educate students in and outside the classroom.
I spend my days with five year old explorers, thinkers, artists, creators, writers, and friends in joyful environment that promotes discovery and community. I hope my children embrace learning, nature and kindness as they grow into confident students of the world.
I'm a first year kindergarten teacher at a title one school in North Carolina. My school consists of a majority of English Language Learners. My babies could greatly benefit from reading and writing resources. It is very significant that I provide my babies with the appropriate resources to build upon their background knowledge, vocabulary, comprehension, and sight words.
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.
We don't have a lot of extra cash for educational supplies and this contest would be absolutely amazing for my kids as well as the friends we co-op with. This is a great opportunity and we wish everyone good luck in the contest!
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.

My special needs would so benefit from these items. Their levels and needs are so diverse that I is difficult to get the materials necessary for them to really achieve and succeed. Please help me to help them?
Thank you for your votes (*_*)

Hi! I am a teacher at a Hutterite Colony where I teach everything from Jr. Kindergarten through Eighth Grade. I have 11 great students who are also English Language Learners. Money is very tight to fund all that is needed to fulfill the best education I can provide. Anything I can win for my students will surely benefit us with a positive outlook toward education. Thank you for voting for US!
I am a teacher in a very small school (2 teachers in each level) and we are trying to make a difference in every child's life. Since we do not have art or music, I would love to be able to get these supplies so that we can use them in the classroom. I would also like to be able to add a few more math and literacy items to our toolbox.
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!
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 :-) !!!
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.

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!
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.
EXTRA, EXTRA, EXTRA-read it first here-PLAY is IMPORTANT TOO We are often times so focused on testing, data, and test scores that play is neglected. I will use the carefully selected items to support and encourage open-ended, hands-on play! My children want to PLAY and need these items to help facilitate a new hands-on learning experience.
This is my first year homeschooling and I want to do everything that I can to encourage learning and a love of learning! Many of those wonderful things take money money money, and this would be an amazing way to set us up for the next few years of homeschooling!
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.
Hello! I teach 1st grade at a wonderful charter school in Phoenix Arizona which specializes in the arts. I plan on using the materials toward my everyday teaching and center activities. Also, the addition of 2nd grade material will go toward differentiation in my teaching. I strive for my kids to be well rounded and respectful individuals.
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 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 am trying to change the "seating" in my classroom! I am going to ALTERNATIVE seating! I would love to have a STANDING area where kids could stand at a TALL TABLE to do their work. My "WISH LIST" includes pillows, benches with soft pillow tops, and a rug for ALL of us to sit on! Stability balls and Wobble Chairs are next!
I WOULD LOVE TO SHARE THIS WITH MY STUDENTS!
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!

I am the only high school teacher in a small title 1 school. Our school has no funding for upgrades for the science classroom. The technology in the laboratory dates back to the 1980's. With your vote, we will be getting 21st century light microscopes for the science classroom.
We are a single income family of 5 with 2 boys who we currently homeschool. Both of our older boys have expressed interest in working with computers when they are older, winning this would allow us to add more STEAM into our daily routine. Thank you for opportunity to win some awesome items for our boys!
As you can imagine, funding in the low socioeconomic areas are limited. This is no different in the area that I teach. Many times my husband and I purchase the items needed to enhance my students learning experiences. There are some items including technology that I would love to have for my classroom that I just cannot purchase. For this reason, please vote for me!
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.
My students attend an alternative school which is in desperate need of resources. Most of the students I teach are bright and willing to learn and have learned to make do with limited materials. Your vote can help make learning become more vital and beneficial for them. Thanks!
Please take a moment to help us win some great curriculum that could help my boy. Being a single mom with a rare neuromuscular disease and IV Infusions this contest could be a huge blessing. Homeschooling is the best option for my son who has Aspergers. Please consider stopping by once daily to help us each vote increases our chances of winning.
I can help NUMEROUS families in need if I win. My nonprofit, HomeschoolFree.org, helps over 11,800 homeschool families in financial need nationwide. My heart goes out to every one of the members who request help with curriculum needs. If I win, I WILL SHARE 100% OF MY WINNINGS with those families who need help the most, in the most dire of circumstances. I am the organization's founder.
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!
Lady's Island Middle School is developing a STEAM LAB. This will be an innovative space with resources and materials for students to explore, problem solve, and create within the STEAM areas of study. Please vote for our project so that we may begin to fill our lab with a foundation of supplies designed to motivate learning through imaginative, authentic, and inventive hands-on activities!
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
I homeschool my 10 year old special needs daughter. We were blessed to find a wonderful group of like minded homeschool moms with amazing kids. My goal is to have plenty of resources so that the other families in our SuperKids group can utilize the resources too. (I wouldn't post a group picture without prior consent from all the moms.) Thank you so much for your time & consideration.
We are a homeschooling family with baby #8 due in May. My husband and I are both former Marines and he is currently serving in the National Guard. We homeschool because we believe that kids learn best through play and exploration. We would love your help in winning us some great supplies for our squad of little learners!
I am a homeschool momma to 4 amazing boys. Three of them that I have the privilege to teach each day! Life is busy, exciting, challenging and I wouldn't change this experience for anything! Each of our boys learns in his own unique way. One thing I have noticed is that learning resources are expensive, this would give our boys education a huge boost in the years to come. :)
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.
This is our first year of Homeschooling, and it has been fantastic!! I have three girls with special needs (Autism), and a 1 year old. This money could change our lives and make our wonderful Homeschooling journey even better!! Thank you for considering us for your vote!!
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.
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 homeschool several age groups and grade levels. I have always been fond of using manipulatives for teaching as well as experiments and projects that engage the students. I have some items, but would love to be able to add more items to engage their learning more and to help with organization.
I am a kind, honest, giving person. I am owner director and teacher of my own preschool . "My kids" and my school is my life. I wish I could afford to give more. Find something you love and you never have to work a day I your life.
We are going to start homeschooling the boys in the upcoming school year. We will need lots of supplies and curriculum to keep them moving in the right directions. Please click and vote for us so that we have a chance of winning a wishlist full of materials. It won't cost you anything except a minute of your time. Please help.
Thank you in advance.
I am a preschool teacher for 3 year olds at my church preschool. I love my job and the kids I have had the honor to teach, I consider it a calling. I would love to be able to purchase some great new items including iPads to bring my classroom and our school up to date with all the new and exciting teaching opportunities that are available and just a little out of our budget.
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.
Please Please give me your vote!!! I/m a single mom on disability and I need all the help I can get to fund their home school ,or else they will have to go to public school...YUCK lol Please vote for us
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 am a caregiver of a severely Disabled Veteran. It was very important for us to homeschool our kids. We now homeschool 2 of our kids and a niece. Soon we may add our nephew also. We are always looking for new books and programs. Please help vote for us so that we can keep the dream of always homeschooling a possibility
Every child has a story in my class, and it is my wish to create the classroom of their dreams. I would like my children not only to feel safe and loved, but enriched in their 'second home'! There's nothing more delightful than to see their faces light up when they are learning in a fun way. Please support me, so I could make my kids' dream come true!
I have taught for 28 years and plan on 10 more! Nothing is more rewarding than watching a child learn something new or them being comfortable enough to start calling you "Mommy" without even realizing it. My school is a low income school. My kindergarten students have often never attended preK or daycare. Readiness skills often need to be learned before the K curriculum can even be started.
I hope you all vote for my kiddo's classroom because they deserve the Best and We; meaning them, their amazing families and I, along with our school are always learning to love learning and how much more we can also do for our communities. Together we are building today and tomorrow's leaders one teachable or ah ha moment at a time.
My school is a high poverty school with 95% of the students on free and reduced lunches. Parents can't afford supplies, therefore I buy them. This leaves me little money for curriculum. Please support our students.
Please vote for our Preschool! We would love to have all the items on our wish list for our class.
I have an amazing group of boys and girls that love to learn and really could use this to help prepare them for their future. Every Child deserves and opportunity to explore and express them self in a fun learning environment. Please vote for my Class room. Thank You.
I am an ECE just starting out my career. My class is full of wonderful children, but there are different needs of the children that we can not always meet, because we do not have the tools. By winning this contest, these deserving children will get new tools to play and learn with. We will also be able to set up a quiet sensory corner. Thank You.
My students deserve more. Each year our school budget gets less and less. I want my students to come to school feeling loved, comfortable and safe. My classroom is a home away from home. For some it's the only place they feel safe. Please help me help my students!
Hey everyone! With three weeks left in the year, I'm looking ahead to next year! I would really love to win this "dream classroom" prize so I can share some great things I have found with the awesome teachers on my team. Help me help the students of Turner County by voting for me in this contest! Thank you!
I am a special education teacher for grades K-3. We have a tight budget so there is not a lot of room to buy items for my classroom. I would love to have something good and positive to happen this year for myself and my students.
We are a small Title I school in rural southwest Virginia. We have a high percentage of students who receive free and reduced lunch and a high percentage of ELL students. I just want to provide as many opportunities for my students as possible.

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.
A busy, active and buzzing classroom is a must for students! They deserve the best resources and latest technology to help develop their skills and strengths. I hope you'll help us by voting! Thank you!!!! Mrs C's Stars :)
students with exceptionalities for PPS. I strive to make all my kids be the best that they can be, guiding them into their future. I would love to have a sink/br in my classroom so we can work on hygiene. A small kitchen area that we can cook our weekly recipes. Grow their own plants then place in our outdoor garden and use with our recipes. I want to expand their learning.
My son was born with a cleft palate in 2010. When John was 3 months old his father died. He has gone through 7 surgeries in his life. Due to his cleft palate I knew there would be some speech issues so I started to show my son baby bumble bee and baby Einstein videos when he was a baby. This was the start of my Homeschooling John. John is now 6 and very inquisitive.
