Now that summer vacation is coming to an end, it is time for kids and teachers to start getting ready to go back to school!
Although this may be a fun time for kids to see their friends again and parents to have a little break in their mornings. Teachers on the other hand may be bringing on more of a financial burden than we may think.
Did you know that most teachers are expected to stock their own school supplies? This article, presented by savings.com has broken down the average 2022 investment of teachers in the workforce. It states that, "nearly one in four teachers say they’ll spend more than $750 of their own money during the 2022-23 school year."
There are different factors as to why this is but the main one is the lack of school funding. In addition to this, if parents do not have the means to supply school supplies for their kids, the teachers are there to help!
Lavender and Pine has teamed up with Ms. Delaney, a first-grade Teacher in the Bronx, NY who will be using these items on her Wishlist for small group instruction- focusing on the Science and Reading & literacy. You can also click here to make a donation for Ms. Delaney to buy an iPad and Apple Pencil for her students to showcase their work in real time for their families to see and helping Ms. Delaney plan her lessons digitally on the go!
From now until September 30th, we are donating 10% of our proceeds to help clear teacher wish lists!
