http://www.donorschoose.org/ is an organization that allows teachers to post their wishlists for their classrooms & then give donors (like you & me) the chance to browse wishlists and make donations! This September, for our kindness, we made a donation to a Pittsburgh teacher wishing for a listening center in her classroom. Coming from an ESL-teaching background, I know how important it is for students to be able to listen & follow along with books. We chose this particular wishlist because we want to support PA kids & reading skills.
Although I'm not in the classroom anymore, its nice to feel like we have a little hand in the classroom we've supported on donorschoose. We want to send a big thank you to all teachers, everywhere!
