Learn How To Help Inspire Countless Possibilities Through Education ~ Giveaway

tsm 2

Thinking back to when I was in school, there were many teachers who inspired me. Teachers who took the time to teach me beyond just the books in front of us, teachers who were passionate about teaching and teachers who cared about their students. 

There was the biology teacher whose creative approach to teaching helped me learn to think beyond black and white. And the English teacher who recognized that I was good at writing, but not at grammar, and pushed me to be more. The teacher who showed me how to work together with others to shine. There many teachers who helped me find myself, my talents and my passions. 

Now I am a mom, and my daughters are the ones who will be inspired by teachers. Everyday my Kindergartener comes home with stories about what she learned, and I am excited for the future possibilities. Will she meet a teacher who uncovers her hidden talent? What will she be inspired to do?

  2. i would give it to the teacher my oldest had in 1 st grade (he is now in 8th) because when we moved here in the middle of the school year, my son was about to be held back because of the horrible teacher he had before we moved. Mrs. Swanson turned him around and he once again enjoyed going to school and passed first grade with flying colors! πŸ™‚

  12. My grandson’s first grade teacher is very deserving- he’s very advanced and bored in class but they don’t have the gt programs set up until they are older in our school district so she has been working with his mom to try to keep him challenged.

  13. I would donate it to a wonderful kindergarten teacher.She taught 2 of my kids back when they were still in public school (they are home schooled now).She was always more concerned with each individual child and not the standardized testing they school board shoved down the throats of teachers,students,and parents.

  14. I would give it to my daughter in law who has been a teacher for 10 years. She has worked with the most disadvantaged students to the most affluent. One year when working with the disadvantaged children everything on her Christmas list was for her students and not for herself. Besides being an incredible teacher who the parents request her now @ the advantaged school she is an exceptional mother to my grandson .

  19. My niece…she’s been a teacher for about 3 years and she works in a very tough school, with kids who face a lot of challenges and she refuses to leave because she wants to make a difference. She is such a positive influence. It’s amazing!

  23. I would give it to my daughter’s teacher from this past year. We moved across the country, but her old teacher will always be our favorite and most deserving of anything we can give! She goes above and beyond for all of her students and is just a great person.

  24. We just moved here recently, but one of my new friends is a first grade teacher, she lovingly talks about her students and genuinely loves them – so I think she deserves the Library in a Box!
