We’ve all had a teacher who has inspired us during our school years. Whether it’s simply because of their kindness or because they inspired in us a passion for a certain subject , teachers have played a big role in our educational lives and in those of our kids.
That is why we are excited to tell you about the Teachers Rock Wall of Fame. Between now and September 20, you can honor an influential teacher in your life by nominating them to the Wall of Fame on the Teachers Rock app. What’s cool about nominating a teacher is that each day a nominee will be inducted and given a $500 gift card. This is awesome for teachers because on average they spend $500 a year of their own money on items for the classroom, and dual immersion and bilingual education teachers spend even more to get language and cultural-appropriate materials.
So what exactly is Teachers Rock all about? Teachers Rock is being presented by Wal-Mart and Walden Media’s upcoming feature film “Won’t Back Down.” You can start by nominating a teacher to the wall of fame, then on August 14 the Teacher’s Rock Concert Benefit will take place and two-hundred deserving teachers from the LA area have already been invited to attend. All proceeds from ticket sales will benefit DonorsChoose.
