Teachers are straight-up awesome. Unfortunately they are faced with challenges every day, the biggest being not having the basic supplies for their students.
Rather than let their students go without basics like pencils and notebook paper, and more, many teachers spend their own money on school supplies for their classrooms.
That would be considered a sweet gesture if teachers were trillionaires, but the reality is they struggle doing so.
Antigua and Barbuda Students Association USA, saw the need and has committed to helping our teachers.
Teachers aren’t just awesome. They are downright selfless.
