Teacher Appreciation Week and Day is fast approaching, so what better time to reach out to your local community and receive some well-deserved support?
Donations for Teacher (Teacher Appreciation Day is Almost Here!)
It might not be something your students think about every day, but they’ll often be more appreciative of the impact you have on their development than you realize. Teaching is an incredibly challenging and, at times, stressful career, but it’s one that does a whole lot of good for the local community.
Still not convinced you’re deserving of these all-important donations?
Here are a few reasons we know you are:
Lack of funding
Many schools don’t have the required funds to provide their students with the equipment they need. This means that lots of students may miss out on educational opportunities, despite you, as their teacher, wanting the best for them. If you’re not looking for donations to support yourself, remember that your students will benefit.
Depleting personal funds
Many teachers can’t stand to see their students suffer, so 94% of them use their own money to buy supplies like notebooks and paints. However, this means they have less of their own money to spend on themselves, making their quality of life lower. You don’t deserve to be one of them, so stop struggling and lean on your support network to help you out.
For the work they do, teachers are compensated with a relatively low wage. Because they’re also using their own money to buy supplies for their students, they can be left with very little to live on. Asking for additional donations could be the boost you need to make you feel like you’re really getting a proper wage for the work you do.
