A HUGE warm welcome to my new visitors from the Box Tops e-newsletter! My name is Crystal (AKA The Teachers Wife) and I run this blog, Surviving a Teachers Salary. (I’m sure many of you can relate!) My husband is a 2nd grade teacher, and this is my first year as Box Tops coordinator at his school. When I’m not busy doing that I am blogging full time and keeping up with my 2 boys! (You can read more about our family here!)
I have a deep passion for educating our children and supporting our teachers, and as many of you know surviving on a teacher’s salary isn’t easy at all! With budget cuts, job losses, and high insurance premiums, our salaries are at an all time low. I started this site to help fellow teachers and families with kids learn how to stretch their budget, find the best educational deals, offer educational giveaways, and find educational resources/activities all while doing the best we can to educate and encourage our kids!
(You can find my current list of giveaways at the bottom of this post or by clicking on the tab “Giveaways” at the top of this page) You don’t need a lot of money to offer our children fabulous learning opportunities!On my right side bar you can find weekly school supplies sales by store, activities/crafts, experiments, fundraisers and grants, teacher and student contests, sweeps, coloring sheets, special posts from my husband geared towards teachers, and much more!
