Unfortunately, the image above is an all too common occurrence in classrooms. Teachers are more and more becoming frustrated with the increasing demands on them from the state, their district, their principal, parents, and even students often without any help in navigating through those demands. This is especially taxing for new teachers.
here4teachers was the brainchild of Melanie Harper after she began witnessing teachers leaving the profession from burnout, lack of support, or the absence of positive reinforcement. Melanie also noticed programs, incentives, grants, and donations were always geared toward students, school improvement, and supplies, but never toward the people divvying out and even soliciting those rewards…THE TEACHERS!
Now here4teachers can’t take away the demands of teaching, but our hope is that by giving teachers a tangible reward for all they do, we can in turn give value and joy back to them and to the profession they love.
We love teachers and aim to show them how much!
