On behalf of the “A Day Made Better” cause for teachers, I surprised a teacher at my child’s school with a $110 worth of school supplies from OfficeMax!
For many of us, we remember that one amazing teacher who turned our lives around. The one who taught us to think differently about the world or got us excited about a subject we once thought was impossible.
Teachers touch so many lives every day, but for many, their passion can also become a financial hardship. With school budgets getting cut nationwide, teachers often buy their own supplies to make sure every child has the necessary tools to learn.
I’ve joined the Max Moms for Teachers program to help create awareness and encourage support for teachers in every community. The Max Moms are working in collaboration with the national “A Day Made Better” cause founded by OfficeMax and nonprofit Adopt-A-Classroom to help erase teacher-funded classrooms.
I am very happy to have been a part of this wonderful program. On Thursday, October 6, 2011 I had the opportunity to surprise a teacher in my community, who has gone above and beyond the call of duty, and presented her with a $110 worth of classroom supplies form OfficeMax. Meet Mrs. Hepp, I chose her because she is passionate in her classroom filled with 25 second graders. She has been an elementary school teacher for fifteen years at North Hill Elementary School in Rochester,Michigan. Mrs. Hepp truly cares about her students and works hard to find ways to teach the kids in a way they will understand a subject. She was VERY appreciative of the box of goodies that she received – I’m sure it made her day. Hats off to her and Office Max!
You too can join in this cause by surprising a deserving teacher in your community by purchasing your own A Day Made Better box of classroom supplies available for $25, $50 or $100 at www.adoptaclassroom.org/better.
