*Thank you to Amazon for sponsoring this post
2020 has proven to be an unprecedented year that has affected so much of our livelihood, including our school environment. Many of us parents have had to adapt to distance learning, while teaching our kids everything our teachers normally would in person. This has definitely been an eye opening experience for me personally as I was pregnant when learning from home started and now going into Fall will have a newborn to care for while tending to my children’s school curriculum. I have never been more in awe of and grateful for what our teachers do day in, day out. From managing several kids at once to coming up with engaging activities on a daily basis – it is truly a job that not everyone can handle. It’s also one that sometimes doesn’t always get the accolades deserved. That’s why I’m excited to be partnering with Amazon to give back to our deserving teachers and organizations on the heels of a school year that came with a lot of uncertainty.
What does it mean to #ClearTheList?
#ClearTheList is a social media movement that encourages customers to give back to teachers by purchasing items from their Amazon Wish Lists. Do you know a deserving teacher with an Amazon Wish List? Head to my Instagram Post (hyperlink post) and comment the link! And if you’re a teacher and want to create your own Amazon Wish List, you can get started at Amazon.com/WishList
