When I was young, I wanted to be a teacher.
I dreamt of having a classroom of my own to decorate, doing things like taking roll call and grading papers and to have the opportunity to teach children.
I probably had this dream because my ultimate roll model was a teacher: my mom.
But as I grew, I saw the struggles that came with being a teacher. I didn’t feel that they were fairly compensated for the amount of work they put in for such a crucial and valuable position. Come to find out, some schools just aren’t given much money to work with as a whole.
Teachers are having to dip into their own pockets to buy supplies for their classrooms and schools lack the funds to help them out. It is so disheartening and sad that some teachers have to make up for what funding lacks.
Parents usually help out where they can in the beginning of the year by purchasing supplies from a list of helpful items that teachers hand out. BUT we can help out so much more by utilizing the Box Tops that come on so many of the products we already buy!

We hit up Costco
this week to really rack up our Box Tops before school even starts. We bought all of the products we normally buy, and I was able to scan them into my app. The kids loved looking for the boxes that had the Box Top label on them, knowing it meant more supplies and activities for them at school!
