TEACHER PEACH PLANTS THE SEEDS TO GROW STUDENT CONFIDENCE
From dream to reality:
Through its new Teacher Peach Seeds Fund, Teacher Peach contributes 10% of
the profits from all Teacher Peach sales to fund grants teachers NEED
CHICAGO, IL (OCTOBER 2016) –When Randi Brill launched Teacher Peach in 2012, she created an online marketplace to support teachers, offering teacher gift products that acknowledge teachers for their hard work and commitment to students everywhere. Teacher Peach also creates classroom products, designed to inspire student confidence and enhance a positive school climate. Crediting key teachers in her life for encouraging her to reach her highest potential every single day, Brill is now thrilled to introduce Teacher Peach Seeds, a separate not-for-profit fund that gives back to both teachers and their students.
Teacher Peach contribute 10% of all product profits to Teacher Peach Seeds to fund teacher “seed money” grants to jumpstart teacher-driven projects designed to GROW student confidence. Teacher Peach Seeds also donates appropriate Teacher Peach Classroom Products to augment the grant-winning projects. Grant application processes are scheduled to begin in early 2017.
“Kids who possess the confidence to believe they can achieve something, stand a far better chance of doing so than those who lack it, which is why our teacher grants focus solely on providing ‘peach seed money’ for smaller projects and initiatives that are designed to help students blossom,” says Brill. “I founded Teacher Peach with this goal in mind and we’re thrilled it’s now come to fruition!” Teacher Peach Seeds will partner with other charitable groups focused on education and the fund welcomes direct donations, as well.
As educators know well, students who possess a GROWing sense of authentic confidence—
- Don't resort to bullying other kids.
- Tend to take greater risks and try new things.
- Are more willing to self advocate and advocate for those less able.
- Perform more successfully in school—and out.
- Ask thoughtful questions of themselves and others.
- Help others and display better citizenship.
Just in time for the ‘giving season,’ and as families seek out the perfect gifts for their children’s teachers, purchasing teacher gifts from Teacher Peach is a triple win.
