*Honor Our Nation’s Schools and Teachers! Product received. This post contains affiliate links
Back-To-School is ALMOST here for our household! Come next Wednesday, I will have TWO kids in school!!! I am not quite sure if I am happy or extremely sad… Let me think on that and I will let you know next week!
Anyways, since we all have school on the brain right now I wanted to let you all know about something! Dollar General is teaming up with Proctor & Gamble to honor our nation’s Schools and teachers who make a difference in the lives of children through its Everyday Heroes program.
The everyday Heroes campaign honors educators who teach students to be their best by offering great savings on school supplies and other products for the heroes closest to our hearts.
Dollar General has a strong commitment to education through the Dollar General Literacy Foundation and believes learning to read, earning a GED or learning the English language are investments that open doorways for personal, professional and economic growth.
So, during the whole month of September, Dollar General is recognizing Kimberly Shearer, an English teacher and library science teacher at Boone County High School in Florence, Ky., as its Everyday Hero! As an eight-year veteran of Boone County High School, her commitment to educating our youth and advocating for 21st-century literacy skills through the use of technology helped earn her the title of “Kentucky Teacher of the Year.”When she is not busy helping her students succeed, Kimberly is spending time with her husband and two daughters.
Inspirational isn’t it??
