Help local teachers stock their classrooms with school supplies

Teachers are the unsung heroes of our community. We want to show our support for local teachers by highlighting school supplies wishlists for educators in Tarrant County.

With the 2023-2024 school year right around the corner, teachers are stocking their classrooms with supplies to make sure their students have the tools they need for success. Oftentimes, teachers use their personal finances to make it happen.

We want to show our support by helping local teachers clear their school supply wishlists. We put a call out in our newsletter last week asking teachers for their school supply wishlists. Here’s how can help:

Christine Grimm | Comanche Springs Elementary

  • “This teacher is new to the area and starting her second year as a 4th-grade teacher but has taught for 15 years.”
  • Wishlist

Cynthia Copeland and Delayne Rodrick | Van Zandt-Guinn Elementary

  • “An amazing second-grade mother-daughter team.”
  • Wishlist

Kylie Gathright | W. A. Porter Elementary

  • “This former Aggie begins her second year teaching 4th grade with enthusiasm and creative plans. Plus, she’s my granddaughter!”
  • Wishlist

Gina Morris | Van Zandt-Guinn Elementary

  • “A veteran elementary teacher that has taught my baby.”
  • Wishlist
