How Valuable Are We?
For those of you who aren’t aware, there is a vibrant movement among teachers called “Clear the list.” Teachers make a wish list of classroom supplies they will need for the school year on the Amazon website. Generous friends, colleagues, and strangers select an item to purchase, then the item is sent to the teacher for the classroom. I love the concept and I applaud every teacher and non-educator who has ever helped a teacher clear his or her list.
Most people are aware that teachers spend a significant amount of money out of their own pockets for their classrooms. Every time someone helps by purchasing an item on the list, that saves the teacher money. It is unfortunate that teachers have to be this creative to get what they need for their classrooms. People often comment about how important teachers are. And they’re right. Without teachers, there would be no pilots, doctors, dentists, bus drivers, or any other professionals who help make the world go around.
