This summer I had a fun experience when I accompanied our church youth group to volunteer at Crayons to Classroom. We had so much fun talking and creating little math kits for teachers to use in their classrooms. And then today I got to be a shopper! WOW, what a great time! I am so excited to go to school and show my coworkers and students all the great items I got today. I am amazed at all the great items from Lysol wipes to calculators to a tape dispenser to notebooks, and on and on! What a great place that helps our community! I have taught over 24 years and have never been gifted so much product for my classroom! Thank you so much!
