In a year like no other, teachers around the nation have shown a dedication and perseverance to continuing to bring learning, play, joy and much-needed normalcy to kids each and every day, whether they’re learning in classrooms or remotely.

According to a survey by the federal Department of Education, teachers spent an average of $500 of their own money each year on supplies for their classrooms — a need that’s only increased as teachers try to ensure that their students have the tools and resources they need to turn their homes into classrooms.
