"Because of the generosity of donors and Teachers' Treasures I’ve been able to provide art journals for most grade levels. We have just begun to make our journals and so far the students have been absolutely thrilled with the concept of creating something of their very own. I can’t thank you all enough"-Ms. Alvarez, art teacher from Ernie Pyle Elementary IPS #90

We love sharing these stories and seeing our materials in our community's classrooms!

We've got another volunteer from our Board of Directors to celebrate! Sara Marshall comes to us from @teachindynow after 7 years of teaching and shopping! We love Sara's fierce determination and passion for serving all members our community! When Sara's not serving on our Board, she can also be found helping out at Check-In on Saturday mornings.

How love have you been involved with Teachers' Treasures?
"Some years...I was a shopper for 7 years and now have been engaged for probably 3 years on the Board of Directors."

What is your favorite thing about helping out with Teachers' Treasures?
"I enjoy getting to greet teachers when they walk through to door and having the chance to say thank you for all teachers do on a daily basis!"

Who was your favorite teacher growing up and why?
"Mr. Ken Bystrom. He took time to know me as a person and held high expectations for what I was capable of. He was a math teacher and I went on to be a math teacher in his honor. He passed recently and I attribute a lot of my relationship building with students to what I saw him do with me and my classmates!"

Thank you, Sara!

We're continuing our recognition of awesome volunteers who make us run with KK Byland. KK is on our Board of Directors, representing the amazing work of American College of Education and has been with us for 6 years. We love KK's positivity and go-get-em attitude. Huge shout out to her and everyone on the ACE team who has done so much to help us serve our teachers. KK also has helped us on our crazy busy Saturday mornings at check-in!

What do you do when you are not helping out at Teachers' Treasures?
"I love to read, spend time with friends and my main squeeze, Jeff!"

What is your favorite thing about helping out with Teachers' Treasures?
"The people! I love the staff and other board members, but I equally love the interaction with the teachers when they come into the store. I was a teacher in a previous life, so I get it. If I could fill each of their classrooms with everything they need everyday, I would."

Who was your favorite teacher growing up and why?
"Mr. Rigel because he took an interest in my education and potential, but beyond that he took an interest in my wellbeing. He truly cared if I succeeded or failed, and that made all the difference to me. He's the reason I had the confidence to go to college."

Thank you, KK!

Our Story

One person can make a difference! For us it started with one person with a desire to help at-risk kids. In 2000, if she would have said she was going to distribute $65 million worth of free school supplies, no one would have believed her.... but it happened! She started our free supply store for teachers and now we are helping over 250 schools, hundreds of teachers and affecting the lives of 100,000-plus students annually. Be part of the the solution, join in our effort. We need volunteers to help staff the store... We need product to fill our shelves ... We need dollars to keep the program operating. Contact us today and take part in a program that is making a difference.
