    I spent just over 4,000.00 dollars last year on the needs of my students. This included food(snacks & weekend backback), clothing, shoes, and countless classroom items for my students. I also provides Christmas for 6 students who were not selected for other charity programs. I make less than 50,000 with 2 master’s degrees and 17 yrs experience. This doesn’t count things like class sets of books, protractors, software, etc. that I also purchase. I do it because my kids need it; my own children often go with less so I can give my students what their families cannot or will not provide to them. I wish I didn’t have too.

      Angie,
      Wow, what a sacrifice you have made for your students because you know that they are in need.I hope your generosity does not go unnoticed. I do hope that you look to the organizations I posted in the video to perhaps get some sort of financial relief. Those students are lucky to have you as their educator!
