The Adopt-A-Teacher Campaign is sponsored by the Teachers Assistance Alliance (a 501c3 to support the STA teachers) There are many heroes in the lives of students each and every day (parents, family, and friends), the heroes at STA are the TEACHERS!
They are the ones who in today’s environment must teach each day a class in which one-third of the students are in the classroom and two-thirds are remote. The life of a teacher was never easy but think of the complexity of taking attendance, keeping students engaged, “collecting” assignments and giving tests in this “new normal”.
In addition, many teachers face these same hybrid schooling methods for their own children, which adds additional stress to their days.
That is why we are launching the “Adopt A Teacher Campaign”, which will allow us to do small things to thank the teachers throughout the year that otherwise are not budgeted for in thse unprecedented times. Little things like extra masks, a gift card at Christmas, a small remembrance for Teacher’s Appreciation Day, etc. While these things are not large, they send our teachers the message that they are appreciated.
