Important message. Freddie Figgers recently had a chance to speak at a public school. While he was there, he met a 68 year old teacher that was spending her own personal money to supply her classroom. Freddie said to himself “how can a teacher focus on education while they are underpaid and being forced to use their own money to supply their classrooms?” This one particular teacher was living paycheck to paycheck and was now past due on her home and car payments. But she still spent her own money proudly to support her classroom. As beautiful as this gesture was, it was also a big issue.
After Freddie helped this teacher with her current situation, Freddie could not stop thinking about all the other teachers that must be in her same position. Too many teachers are being forced to come out their own pocket to supply their classrooms.
This is the public sectors’ job but we shouldn’t have to rely on the public sector. Every school year, we see back to school book-bag drives which are great, but we forget all about the teachers. This has to stop. Our teachers do so much for our kids, we must look out for them. So this is what Freddie is going to do. Freddie will be using his own personal resources to supply 1,000 teachers’ classrooms with all the supplies they’ll need to have a successful school year.
