Some people say that kind acts always come back to you in good measure. Imagine the path this generosity could take if it was bestowed upon an educator. When a teacher smiles, her whole class smiles with her. The Teacher Sponsor Box makes it easier than ever to make a teacher smile.
It’s no secret that most teachers make it their life’s work to pave the way for students to succeed. What many don’t realize, though, is that teachers voluntarily give up much of their own time and money to build that path to success. Wouldn’t it be kind to relieve a teacher of some of that burden? Just one person investing in a Teacher Sponsor Box could impact a teacher’s ability to give back to her entire class.
According to a May 2018 report from the U.S. Department of Education, 94% of public school teachers spend their own hard-earned money on supplies for their classrooms. The mean amount that those teachers spend each year is $494. Combine that with the fact that many school districts pay teachers far less than workers in comparable professional positions, and you can infer that many teachers are probably stressed about money. On one hand, they love to provide everything their students need to feel safe and happy at school. On the other hand, they don’t have the means to make it happen.
You can help by sponsoring a teacher. Teacher’s Corner, in New Port Richey, Florida, is on a mission to find a sponsor for every public and private school teacher every where in the United States. For $22, you can purchase a Teacher Sponsor Box for your favorite teacher. The contents are curated by the owner of Teacher’s Corner, a former teacher herself. You simply purchase the box online and specify where to send it. Optionally, you may specify what grade-level and subject area is taught. That way, the contents of the box may be tweaked to fit the needs of the teacher.
The best part is that you are relieved of trying to guess about what a teacher wants and needs. The owner of Teacher’s Corner, a former classroom teacher, designs the boxes based on factors such as seasons and progress in the school year. Teachers will be delighted to find everything from classroom decor and stationery items to student incentives and school supplies.
Purchase the Teacher Sponsor Box one month at a time. Or, prepay for boxes to be delivered for the rest of the school year! There is a flat-rate fee for shipping to schools outside the local delivery area.
Donations are also accepted. Suppose you want to help, but you don’t have a specific teacher in mind. That’s okay! We have been contacted by teachers who want to be sponsored. When donations come in, we will use the funds to purchase Teacher Sponsor Boxes on a first-come, first served basis.
