Most people understand that our teachers are burdened with managing large classroom sizes, paid insufficient salaries, and purchase school supplies out of their pockets simply because their students cannot afford them. Teachers across the state do this every year and the disparity of students attaining their vital school supplies is continues to grow. By honoring our teachers through the We Appreciate Teachers contest, we're also empowering their students. – Matthew Kurtzman, CEO, Back 2 School America
