    Amazon Wish List

    The new school year is just around the corner, and like many teachers out there, I’m getting my new classroom together and struggling to cover all the supplies I need.

    So I am going to ask for help from all you lovely tumblr folks out there. If for some reason you’re rolling in the dough, or just can’t figure out how to spend your money, I know 36 students would be very grateful for your generosity!

    If you’re curious or would like to help out, check out my Amazon Wish List. You can “sort by priority,” and see what I really need, or you can sort by price (which is super helpful as well).

    And if you are able to order, please let me know who you are in the “note” section of the order so I can properly thank you!!

    Thanks everyone!

    Want to support #education? Donate to Tumblr Teachers’ Classrooms!

    positivelypersistentteach:

    Dear Tumblrverse,

    Before the explanation part of this post, I need to say this so it will be in posts that are shortened by a reblog: More than anything I ask that you reblog this post so that kind millionaires  more people will see it and more support can be given.   All the Amazon wishlists and blogs are linked below the read more link!

    As the new school year approaches, we are obviously in denial teachers are mentally figuring out what materials we need for the school year, what will be provided by the school or families, and what we will buy with our own money as we shop sales (if it is in our budget).  Several members of our #education community on tumblr dealt with unexpected family deaths, weather disasters, or more happy (but expensive) life achievements like getting married or having a baby.  Our pockets have been hit hard, and I think you’d be surprised how much of our own money we spend on classrooms each year.

    Many of us teach in areas where our students’ families cannot help with school supplies.  In fact, as I began working on this project, every teacher I contacted to include that came from a more affluent community declined being included so that classrooms in greater need could be helped.  I am in awe of the teachers in this community.  After the jump is a list of teachers and their classroom wish lists for the upcoming year.  If you are able to, please consider supporting a teacher via their wishlist.  If you’d rather make a donation to their supply fund or send a gift card, I’m sure you could contact them and they wouldn’t turn you down.   

    So after the jump are the blogs and corresponding wishlists from Tumblr’s teachers — most of the educators on this list I have personally interacted with and know them to be dedicated to their students.

    Read More

    Yes! Anything you can do to help any of these teachers (including myself) is beyond a HUGE help!

    indigoproj asked

    I love reading about your adventures in teaching! I recently read that you were teaching juniors in high school. Did you see a lot of juniors stressing over the college application process?

    I did teach one period of juniors this last year as well as my first two years teaching. I can’t say they seemed stressed over college apps, much to my [this sounds bad, but] disappointment. I used to be a college recruiter prior to teaching, and junior year is probably the most important year in preparing for college. It’s the year that students should be visiting colleges and picking their top schools to apply for. By the time students are seniors, they should have their school decision made (or top few schools) and then spend this year looking for scholarships. No, it’s not law, but it would make things MUCH easier for students in the long run if they focused more like this than putting things off till last semester of senior year.

    I wish my past juniors would have taken things more seriously and stressed a bit more about their college careers. But then again, maybe they were on top of things and I just wasn’t aware of that only seeing them for one Spanish class each day.

    What are your thoughts on it, indigoproj? Also, can you tell me more about Indigo Project?
