Ingrid R. Nelson, a kindergarten teacher at Rosenwald Elementary, was the recipient of a Teacher Supply Box Award from the Kids in Need Foundation. Her essay was chosen as one of the winners from a large number of submissions. Some of the supplies received were folders, notebooks, glue sticks, pencils, pencil sharpeners, rulers, scissors, crayons, and markers. These supplies are greatly needed and will have a significant impact on her students.
Anyone can donate to this foundation in order to expand the number of classrooms that receive awards at kinf.org/donate.
