About Us

 

Aid for Educators is located in the Arlington Texas. Our directors and officers have worked or still work teaching and view first hand the dedication of the teachers from elementary to high school. Aid for Educators has helped new teachers and economically disadvantaged students in various Texas school districts.

 

Over ninety percent of teachers use their own money for their classroom and students. Some examples, the students aren't grasping a concept so the teacher purchases materials to help present the concept in a more understanding manner. A new teacher needs to decorate their classroom or help less fortunate students participate on field trips. School districts and schools themselves do a good job providing the basics. Students do get a supply list for their classes but, parents are not required to purchase school supplies. Some families won't or cannot afford to buy their children's needed supplies. Thank goodness for the other organizations providing supplies at the beginning of the school year. But, as the school year progresses there becomes a void. Supplies are low or the budget is exhausted and project materials are needed to help the students learn. The result, teachers spend their own money, on average $500-$1,000 a year.

 

Aid for Educators goal is pursue partnerships, hold fundraisers, ask for donations and apply for grants. This funding is year round and will be for supplies, classroom materials and projects directly needed by our teachers and their students. This is Aid for Educators way of giving back and showing our appreciation for what educators do everyday for our children.
