It’s time for another #FeaturedTeacherFriday! 📚🥰💪🏻Today’s teacher is Tej Carbone from Florida. Tej is both a teacher and a school social worker and I am so inspired by her attitude!
Here’s her story: “Hi! I’m a 33 year old former licensed clinical social worker that felt the call to the classroom. I spent this past year studying and taking certification exams in order to obtain certification as an educator. I’m now certified as a school social worker, k-6 teacher and ESE. I will be teaching 2nd and 3rd grade in a small, special needs inclusion tuition-free charter school. Half of our students have documented disabilities, and a majority of our students are on free/reduced lunch. Our salaries are even less than that of our public school counterparts, yet we serve such a unique population. We have students ranging from profound intellectual disabilities all the way up to gifted, working together in the same class. This provides a unique set of challenges , but one which I am so excited to take on.
As this is my first year teaching, I do not have any income with which to supply my classroom with necessities (my first check won’t come until late August), but I would love to create a calming space, with resources for ALL of my students to be successful. I will be teaching at UCP of Central Florida, Bailes campus. We are moving to a new building this year and expanding, so I’m getting a brand new classroom. This is exciting but also means I’m starting from scratch. Thank you so much for your help!” Her wishlist will be in my bio and once again- sending a massive smooch to everyone who reads this and feels inspired to help. xo! 💗🙌🏻📚
@kbuback Thank you so much for doing this! I sent an email!

@kidsinneed THANK YOU so much for your support to help teachers!
We hope to continue to raise awareness for the thousands of teachers out there in NEED of core school supplies like, pencils, notebooks and crayons.
We have nearly 14,000 teachers on our SupplyAClassroom.org site in need of supplies whose students receive free or reduced lunches.
We'd LOVE if you picked one of our teachers to help! You can read their heartwarming profiles on our site: www.supplyaclassroom.org

@mrstlc220 The gifts keep coming and I am continuously humbled by the generosity of your followers. I’ve shared gifts with our art teacher and the other 9 teachers on the 2nd and 3rd grade team! And we have supplies to get our school - wide garden started PLUS recess equipment for the whole school. Really just AMAZING
@ursgirlsgrow Would you consider clearing an Amazon list for a club led by 2 teachers in a school? 🤞🤔

@mrsblount86 Kristen... you seriously rock! I love seeing all that you do for kids around the world. Although teaching can be difficult, it is such a blessed and rewarding career. My husband is a police officer/firefighter/and paramedic who experiences a lot of the same frustrations and saddening things I do in my career. What a blessing it is so have such compassionate people like you helping us out:). Much love from Wisconsin! <3
