Live Oak Elementary School librarian's DonorsChoose.org project funded
in Horace Mann's ‘Seventy in 70' giveaway
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (Sept. 30, 2015) - Jeanne Thibodeaux's DonorsChoose.org project is one of more than 70 receiving funding in Horace Mann's "Seventy in 70" giveaway. The giveaway celebrates Horace Mann's 70 years of helping educators reach their financial goals. By funding supplies through DonorsChoose.org, Horace Mann helps limit personal resources teachers spend in the classroom.
Thibodeaux, a librarian at Live Oak Elementary School in Lafayette, Louisiana, will receive an iPad to help her students search and locate items, read eBooks and check comprehension. "Donating the iPad to our school library will provide all of our students a chance to experience something they will never forget...finding the perfect book to read!" said Thibodeaux in her project post. "Students will also be able to use the iPad to increase their reading fluency and ensure their love of reading!"
The "Seventy in 70" giveaway funded 70 DonorsChoose.org projects throughout the nation, a total of $35,000 in donations. DonorsChoose.org is a website where teachers post requests for classroom supplies or tools, and donors choose to fund them. Since starting its partnership with DonorsChoose.org in 2011, Horace Mann has funded more than $3 million dollars in projects, and its agents have also taught teachers about the program and shown them how to post projects.
"We know from our own educator surveys that teachers spend a lot of their own resources in the classroom," said local Horace Mann agent Larry Broussard. "Our partnership with DonorsChoose.org helps the teachers get the supplies they need to engage their students."
