When I returned to school this morning myself, I found that part of my classroom ceiling had fallen in, and some of my own books and materials were soaked and ruined. While the damage was minimal, and I have managed to dry some items out, it really got me to thinking about the many teachers out there who may have lost everything.
With that in mind, I am working to put together some resources to send to teachers in the affected areas. While we cannot replace everything that they lost, we certainly can help them get back on their feet by giving what we have.

How can I help?
If you are a teacher or have a store on TpT or TN, then please consider donating some of your products or materials to a teacher in need! If you are interested, please click the "teachers helping teachers" button below and fill out the requested information.Teachers of all grade levels are welcome and encouraged to participate! I will send out an e-mail when it is time to send in your donated product, and I will handle separating the products into grade-level bundles for distribution and distributing to schools and teachers in need. Donations close Tuesday, November 13, 2012.

(this can be done by copying the image and inserting it into your post, then copying the link location and linking the picture). If you don't have a blog but still wish to donate and share, then pintrest, Facebook and Twitter about it!
- Join the linky party below and link to your blog post (if you have a blog) or your TpT store if you do not have a blog.
What if I do not have a TpT store?
At this point, I have had multiple teachers express interest in holding drives at their school to send hard goods to teachers in need. If you are interested in this, please fill out the form by clicking the link above. I am setting up an "adoption program" where I will put teachers who have hard goods to donate in contact with teachers who request assistance using the "I need help" form. The teachers who request assistance through the form and are "adopted" by teachers will also receive the digital goods appropriate to their grade level/subject area.
Thanks so much for thinking about our colleagues in need!
