I have been compensated by Thread up for this post but all opinions are true and to read more about my policies go here.
Fashion resale site thredUP.com has partnered with AdoptAClassroom.org to recognize and thank teachers for their hard work and the positive impact they make each day on our children’s lives. This is exciting for us and I’m glad to be a part of supporting and recognizing the hard work of teachers. I think that having great teachers is so important and will make a big difference in Bella learning to love school and getting the best education possible. So when I was asked if I wanted to be a part of recognizing great teachers I was excited to be a part of this project. I even asked Bella to be a part of it with me.
We have been extremely lucky so far and all of Bella’s teachers have been so excellent. If there is a problem they help solve it. They have all liked Bella and had great things to say about her and she has liked all of them. I think teachers get a bad reputation sometimes when the majority of them are pretty great. Teachers are extremely generous with their time as well as their money. According to AdoptAClassroom.org, teachers spend an average of $500 of their own money each year to equip their classrooms. 70% of teachers have even purchased apparel items like jackets, socks and shoes for their students. There are of course not so great teachers but there are so many fantastic ones.
So if your child has had a great teacher how about you nominate them at thredUP‘s site. The nomination period is July 15 – August 23. Three teachers each win $2,500 for classroom supplies and $500 to thredUP. 50 runner-up winners receive $100 to thredUP. Winners will be announced on Tuesday, September 8 (following Labor Day weekend)
I asked Bella to nominate a teacher, of course my very sensitive girl really struggled with only getting to choose one of her teachers of the three she’s had so far. She wanted me to tell all of you that all of her teachers have been really good teachers. She ended up selecting Mrs Crawford her second grade teacher as her favorite so far. We then made a video to go with the nomination. You can read the inspiring nominations and watch an adorable video of kids thanking teachers, plus find new survey data from AdoptAClassroom.org at thredUP.com/Teachers
So check out Bella’s video and then go nominate a teacher. Also make sure to check out Threadup’s Back to School clothes. Fashion resale site thredUP.com has all of my favorite kids brands, including GapKids, Janie and Jack, Lilly Pulitzer, Mini Boden, Zara Kids and more! thredUP’s prices are always up to 90% off retail, so you don’t have to wait for the back-to-school sales to start to save a ton of money. We don’t like to spend a lot on Bella’s clothes and with Threadup we don’t have to. She loves new clothes and this way I can get them for her.
