Teachers have had a tough last few years, and only 52% feel valued by their community according to a recent survey. So as the new school year starts up, here are five things you can do to help support them .

  • Donate school supplies

    The average teacher will drop $745 of their own money on classroom supplies this year. If you don’t know what they need, ask.

  • Volunteer to help out

    That doesn’t always mean helping in the classroom.  They might need help assembling packets, or with things like field trips.

  • Attend school board meetings, and support policies that serve teachers' interests

    School boards won’t always stick up for them on their own.

  • Recognize teachers who go above and beyond

    Nominate them for things like the Staples “Thank a Teacher” contest when it opens back up.  That one comes with a $5,000 prize for each winning teacher’s classroom.

  • Play an active role in your child's learning

    Meaning help them with homework . . . make sure they complete their homework . . . and don’t expect their teacher to do it all.
