ZR ♥ Teachers!

Having volunteered in inner-city schools, I have seen up close how challenging teachers’ work can be, day in and day out. Teachers are on the front lines educating a new generation in the hopes that we’ll produce another Bach, Einstein, Jobs or Zuckerberg. CHARLES BEST, a former public school teacher, started an online philanthropic marketplace called Donors Choose to help teachers with classroom expenses to insure that our nation’s children are learning with the proper tools. We can help by making online donations.

    Amen. The Governors of most states have no idea what teachers do on their own time. Teachers spend enormous amounts of money for supplies and materials from their own pockets. Thanks to Donor Choose and Adopt a School, teachers who are underpaid can get materials for their classrooms to enhance learning.

    Can you tell I am an educator. Teachers are one of the lowest paid professions, but everyone needs a teacher to learn their craft. Go figure. I do my job because I love children and I do believe in the old adage, “children are our future!”
