Tip # 20: Give Classroom Supplies
In an Edutopia survey a few years back, nearly half of the educators that responded told us that they spend $500 or more on classroom supplies each year out of their own pockets. Thank your teacher by helping stock their classroom. Ask them what they need most -- it could be as simple as new whiteboard pens or an extra pencil sharpener.
Every day in May we'll be offering up a new way to appreciate teachers.
