What the teachers are saying...

“Nearpod was one of the best instructional tools that I used all year! It was a great way to turn a traditional worksheet into a fun and engaging lesson. Students were able to draw, collaborate, and play games using the learning concepts. It worked out great for online learners as well. Thank you so much for supporting this instructional tool and my classroom!”

LCD writing tablets, wobble stools, and  whisper phones

“Thank you so much for the Foundation money I was able to use for my classroom. The items I ordered have recently arrived and we have been enjoying them. The students have been using the new wobble stools, LCD writing tablets, and whisper phones.  I was able to also purchase some laminating pouches and posters to help with my planning and instruction. The extra money you provide really is a huge help and allows us to purchase resources the entire class can benefit from. 

Thank you again!”
