"A Day Made Better" Office Max Teacher Giveaway



On behalf of the “A Day Made Better” cause for teachers, you can nominate your teacher to win a gift card to OfficeMax for school supplies! Keep reading to find out how....



You know that song by the Black Eyed Peas: I've got a feeling that tonight's gonna be a good night..... Or that song by Priscilla Ahn: I can tell it's gonna be a good day.... Well, I've got a feeling that today's gonna be even better... because today, October 5, OfficeMax is hosting its national “A Day Made Better” event. Approximately 30,000 OfficeMax associates will surprise and honor more than 1,000 dedicated teachers at Title 1 schools across the nation today, with $1 million worth of classroom supplies – that's $1,000 per classroom!

I first heard about "A Day Made Better" one year ago, when I did a Back-to-School webcast with OfficeMax. I also had the pleasure of meeting Heather, a.k.a. Tween Teacher, a middle school teacher and blogger who appeared on the webcast with me. She was the one who first opened my eyes to the sad reality that many teachers actually have to spend their own money to buy supplies for the kids they teach! I've since learned that teachers are now spending an average of $1,000 out-of-pocket annually on classroom supplies to offset budget shortfalls; this figure was first cited by a National Education Association survey in 2005 and confirmed by an OfficeMax survey of teachers in June 2009.

I think it's a shame that teachers have to pick up the tab -- if they were employed by Wall Street bankers I wouldn't care, but the way teachers are paid they can barely afford their own tape and scissors. I have enormous respect for teachers and the work they do -- a good teacher can truly change a child's life and set him on the right path -- and I've wanted to be a part of Office Max's A Day Made Better program ever since I heard about it.


And now I am! I've been selected by Office Max to join their Max Moms for teachers program to help create awareness and give back to teachers. As a Max Mom, I'll be writing some posts on the Day Made Better blog and helping to create awareness of this important cause.


My first task: a giveaway! No, not for you.... this one's for your teacher!

I would love to nominate an algebra teacher I had in 7th grade. He was awesome all the way around--super fun, made learning fun, made us believe in ourselves and he was funny as heck! He is/was:

Passionate: He was always in a good mood and happy---never seemed like it was a chore or job to him

Dedicated: I can never remember a day he was absent---he came to work every single day even when sickish!

Innovative: He was always jumping around to new grades to teach Algebra, Algebra II, Geometry, etc--he was always doing something new!

I would like to nominate Mrs. Tia Barton a speech and language specialist and Special Needs Teacher at the High School level.

She works with young adults who are mentally, physically and/or emotionally delayed. She treats them with respect. She is very kind and compassionate to each of their needs.

She has taken some of these students shopping to find appropriate clothing, hygiene articles and school supplies. She has taught many of them how to relate socially to other people. She has served as advisor, friend and even a bridesmaid. She develops lessons for each individual and adjusts these plans as the needs of the student changes.

She is dedicated to these young adults. She makes them feel special and normal. She cares deeply for her students and wants them to be successful and accepted in our society.

I nominate the math teacher at my little brother's high school - Mr. Brown. He's very PASSIONATE, in that you can tell he loves math and brings an infectious enthusiasm to his classes. He's DEDICATED, because he always makes himself available to any students that need help, even if it means missing his lunch hour or staying later after school. Most of all, he's INNOVATIVE in creating games to make math fun for the kids. He offered a waffle party to his class that did the best in a Lord of the Rings themed game he came up with. I don't totally understand it, but I know it was a huge hit!

Princess Golden Hair on October 17, 2010 at 6:16 AM said...

I would like to nominate my husband Darryl Copeland who is an outstanding teacher in an inner city school. he is a teacher who sees teaching as more than just a profession. For Darryl, teaching is a calling. He is the type of teacher who will pay for a student to go on a field trip out of his own pocket rather than have them miss out on a learning opportunity. Together we shop sales all year long so our students can have the school supplies our students need but their families cannot afford. He is not the type of man who is looking for the recognition. The success of each student is his reward but I wanted to let you and the whole world know what a wonderful teacher he is

I'd like to nominate my daughter's environmental science teacher, Mrs. Harris. She spends tons of her own money helping the kids with the science fair projects, tons of her own time (and her husband's time also) supporting the kid's projects and extra efforts. She is really enthusiastic about her subject and passes that excitement on to the kids! She's got them SO inspired that a group of them worked ALL SUMMER on the Envirothon project! Then, that group took first place in the nation! And, she's teaching the kids about saving our environment and world (and they are listening!!!) Go Mrs. Harris!

My daughter's preschool teacher, Ms. Debbie, definately deserves a nomination. She has a classroom full of 4 year olds that she cares for 5 days a week. She is like a second mom and a mentor. She takes time to teach every one of them their alphabet, which is amazing for that age. She checks in with the kids every day to make sure that they are happy and healthy. She is amazing, and we are blessed to have her this year.

She definately could use a gift card because I am certain she spends much of her own money on the classroom and the kids. She has a lot of ESL children in her classroom, and she brings them to above standard, so that they head off to kindergarten ahead.

She is just amazing. Thank you, Ms. Debbie!!!!

She creates fun and unique writing prompts for the kids to encourage not only writing skills but also creativity. She loves to keep up with all of her students be they current or past and gets excited when they reach goals that I wanted to hit. She helped my son immensely this year by giving him ear plugs for days when the volume in class bothers his super sensitive hearing which is soooo much more than any other teacher he's had has done. She fantastic and really does all she can for each child that crosses her path and every child comes away with a great feeling of worth.

I would like to nominate my Science teacher, Mrs Keep, from Te Aroha College. Here are my reasons:

1) Passionate:
Mrs Keep is very passionate. She loves to teach, and we love to learn from her. She will never let us fail, and always encourages us to keep going, no matter how hard the work may be.

2) Dedicated:
Mrs Keep is also very dedicated. She never lets anyone think about failing, or fail. She loves to help us to understand, more than any other teacher I've ever known. She will give up all her free time, just to help a few students pass tests. She always offers extra-curricular activities for us to do, organises class activities, class competitions, Scientific field-trips, and always keeps us on our toes. Mrs Keep always keeps us brimming with knowledge, new or revised, and always keeps us busy with work to do.

3) Innovative:
Our school may not have the most up-to-date technology in every room, like smart boards in all rooms, new material from the current year, or anything like that {I'm not complaining though}, but Mrs Keep does astonishingly well to keep our attention on the topics. She always finds new ways to teach us, help us learn, and have lots of fun. She is always bubbling with vibrancy, enthusiasm, and intellectual ability.

These are only a few of my reasons, I have many more which are either too difficult to word, or too hard to explain.

In summary:
Mrs Keep is the BEST teacher I have EVER known.

Thank you.

1) Passionate:
Mr Stinger is very passionate. He loves to teach, and we love to learn from him. He will never let us fail, and always encourages us to keep going, no matter how hard the work may be.

2) Dedicated:
Mr Stringer is also very dedicated. He never lets anyone think about failing, or fail. He loves to help us to understand, more than any other teacher I've ever known. He will give up all her free time, just to help a few students pass tests. He always offers extra-curricular activities for us to do, organises class activities, class competitions, and always keeps us on our toes. Mr Stringer always keeps us brimming with knowledge, new or revised, and always keeps us busy with work to do.

3) Innovative:
Our school may not have the most up-to-date technology in every room, like smart boards in all rooms, new material from the current year, or anything like that {I'm not complaining though}, but Mr Stringer does astonishingly well to keep our attention on the topics. He always finds new ways to teach us, help us learn, and have lots of fun. He is always bubbling with vibrancy, enthusiasm, and intellectual ability.

These are only a few of my reasons, I have many more which are either too difficult to word, or too hard to explain.

In summary:
Mr Stringer is the BEST teacher I have EVER known.

Thank you.
