There’s definitely some opportunity here for you to be a stakeholder in your own success.

Teachers Chalk Up 10 Percent Savings at Walmart's First-Ever Teachers' Savings Event - WSJ.com

apsies:

Teachers who shop at Walmart stores during its Teacher Appreciation Week, July 25 to 31, are eligible to receive a Walmart eGift Card for 10 percent back on nearly 15,000 products — everything from pencils and glue to classroom décor.

"On average, teachers around the country spend about $1,000 readying their classrooms, and half of that comes from reaching into their own wallets to make sure students have what they need," said Steve Bratspies, executive vice president, general merchandise for Walmart U.S. "We’ve had a commitment to supporting teachers in the communities we serve for many years. This program is one more way we’re helping lessen the cost, increase support and set teachers up for success."

The savings process for teachers is simple:

— Shop Walmart stores for classroom supplies.

— Visit www.walmart.com/teachers by August 15 to register receipts by entering teacher’s school information and receipt transaction code.

— Savings on eligible items from select departments* will be delivered on a Walmart eGift card via email within 14 days of submitting the receipt online.

Dear Tumblrverse,

Before the explanation part of this post, I need to say this so it will be in posts that are shortened by a reblog: More than anything I ask that you reblog this post so that kind millionaires  more people will see it and more support can be given.   All the Amazon wishlists and blogs are linked below the read more link!

As the new school year approaches, we are obviously in denial teachers are mentally figuring out what materials we need for the school year, what will be provided by the school or families, and what we will buy with our own money as we shop sales (if it is in our budget).  Several members of our #education community on tumblr dealt with unexpected family deaths, weather disasters, or more happy (but expensive) life achievements like getting married or having a baby.  Our pockets have been hit hard, and I think you’d be surprised how much of our own money we spend on classrooms each year.

Many of us teach in areas where our students’ families cannot help with school supplies.  In fact, as I began working on this project, every teacher I contacted to include that came from a more affluent community declined being included so that classrooms in greater need could be helped.  I am in awe of the teachers in this community.  After the jump is a list of teachers and their classroom wish lists for the upcoming year.  If you are able to, please consider supporting a teacher via their wishlist.  If you’d rather make a donation to their supply fund or send a gift card, I’m sure you could contact them and they wouldn’t turn you down.   

So after the jump are the blogs and corresponding wishlists from Tumblr’s teachers — most of the educators on this list I have personally interacted with and know them to be dedicated to their students.

I never realised before entering the teaching profession that it is a full-time – and by full time, I mean an every-waking-hour – job. Even during sleep, I dream about school and staff and pupils. There is simply no escape.

"The effect is intoxicating, as Maslany doesn’t just give the audience a subtly different “Sarah” seen through a fragmented prism, but seven individual characters, a masterful accomplishment. Each of the clones behaves in her own unique way, each with her own distinctive body language, timbre, and sensibilities. Sarah’s bruised toughness is quite different to Alison Hendrix’s uptight soccer mom fragility, just as the hipster sensuality of Cosima Niehaus’ evolutionary developmental biologist is worlds apart from copper Beth’s no-nonsense brusqueness or Helena’s sociopathic intensity." - The Daily Beast

This is a Truth about this actress and is exactly the reason why she is so riveting to watch.

I love this show.

We’ve been binge-watching this over the last 2 days.

Yesterday, a friend who’s about to begin graduate school for education expressed her reverence for Minerva McGonagall, and cited the transfiguration professor as her #1 inspiration towards becoming a teacher. That brilliant bit of literary reflection inspired this little nugget of my own:
