Students and Teachers Too
The Kansas chapter of Pioneers runs a project called Students and Teachers Too that assists new teachers. Pioneers provide these new teachers funding and/or school supplies to help them optimize their classrooms for learning. Many schools that the project helps are Title I and in rural communities, so the teachers need the support.
In rural areas, Pioneers deliver the school supplies to the teachers, along with a few books for all the students in class and additional books for a classroom library. Pioneers make sure to provide a wide range of books that include selections that students are likely to read.
For teachers in bigger cities, Pioneers offer the option to retrieve school supplies directly from Pioneer headquarters, or the teachers can have these items delivered as well.
Both teachers and administrators loved this project and found that it provided a great benefit to their students.
