Whole Lotta Heart

Good teachers are hard to come by, and often go unappreciated. I should know- I hear plenty of tough stories from my sister, a teacher on Long Island. Check out a few of these statistics:

 

  • The nation will need 2.2-2.4 million more teachers by 2010
  • Teachers currently rank in the top of respected professions, but in the bottom as a planned career choice.
  • 30-50% of teachers leave the profession within 3-5 years.
  • Teachers spend an average of $1,200 of their own money each year to outfit their classrooms for basic learning.
  • Join me in celebrating teachers through Jones New York’s non-profit organization, In the Classroom. By purchasing a limited edition t-shirt illustrated by artist Sujean Rim, 100% of profits will be donated to In the Classroom, which ultimately supports teachers and children’s education through various outlets.
