Hi everyone! Growing up I attended A LOT of schools, I’m talking 5 elementary schools, 4 middles schools and 5 high schools so I got to experience first hand the huge discrepancies between schools that were in wealthier areas and those in lower income parts of the city. A lot of schools simply didn’t have the budget for some of the experiences that I had in the wealthier schools. Things like fun rewards, cool sensory activities, access to a broader range of books. So the fact that we can all come together and help some of the teachers fulfill their back to school wishlist can give children a better shot at having a similar experience regardless of their economic status. Thank you to all of the Teachers that sent me their wishlist to share with my readers. There were so many submissions and it was really tough to narrow it down.
