How to Help & Support Your Child’s Teacher this School Year

I participated in a campaign for Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Wet Ones, about supporting teachers this school year. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

I think it’s safe to say that everyone’s kids have finally started school now. And in most areas – fall is in the air… The leaves are beginning to change, the air is crisper in the morning, and most important of all – Pumpkin Spice Lattes are available once again. {Yum, oh yum.} But, even though you’ve done the main back to school shopping, that doesn’t mean that your work is done – there are a ton of things you can do to help support the hard work that you’re kiddo’s teachers are doing throughout the school year.

How to help teachers all year long

How to help teachers all year long

We all know that for some crazy reason, our schools are almost always underfunded. Most of us would say that schools are one of the most important places for our tax dollars to go – yet unlike the DMV, the courts, or the police department, teachers buy huge amounts of supplies that are needed to do their jobs out of their own pocket. They work many hours off the clock, have to do tons of continuing education, and aren’t that highly paid. But, clearly, they do it because they love it – which is why they deserve our support, right? Here are some great ways to show support:

Teacher Appreciation Gifts that Rock

Sending the kids to school with a fun gift for their teachers from time to time can make a big impact on both of them – it’ll bring some sunshine to their teacher’s day, and it’ll make them feel good doing something nice. Plus, it helps drive home the message of how important teachers are, and to treat them with respect each day.

Support their learning at home

Teachers can only do so much – they rely on us parents at home to help with our children’s learning too. Whether it’s ensuring that homework is completed correctly and completely, making sure to get forms filled out and sent back to school on time, or providing fun learning materials for kiddos after school and on weekends – teachers can help our kids learn better when we’re more involved.

Help Teachers Get the Resources They Need

Last school year we participated in the Bag it Forward campaign, where we helped gather school supplies to donate to our favorite schools. This year we did a Pay it Forward backpack event – where I purchased a backpack and stuffed it with cute supplies to donate to our local YWCA Women and Children’s shelter. We also dropped off a big box of extra goodies that we purchased during back to school sales, to help the kid’s new school this year. Things like glue and crayons, paper and pencils, and Wet Ones wipes are always much appreciated. But I also just learned about an AWESOME way that I can help our local teachers all year long – that you can use in your own area too. Check it out:
