“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge,” (Albert Einstein).
Do you know a local teacher who goes above and beyond the call of the classroom? A person who uses their skills to serve and empower the next generation? Or are you yourself a teacher with a passion for activities that build up our educational community?
We are grateful for the diligence and heart our teachers invest in our students year after year. That’s why Schuler Shoes is partnering with Cobb Hill September 18th-25th to host Teacher Appreciation Week. Not only will we be offering local teachers the chance to save $10 on a pair of Cobb Hill shoes, but five teachers will be selected to receive a $500 grant toward their local educational-focused projects.
To choose those five, we need your stories and project ideas! Whether it’s to help fund the costs of dirt and seed to plant a class garden, or covering bus fees to take students on a special field trip, visit our Facebook page September 18th-25th to upload a video or tell us in 300 words or less why we should support you or your teacher’s beyond-the-classroom ventures. Photos are also welcome! Remember to include the hashtag “#beyondtheclassroomMN” if you mention us across your social media channels.
For those that do not have a Facebook account, you can share your videos and stories at blog.schulershoes.com/teachers. Our committee will select five winners and highlight their stories on Wednesday, October 1st. View official contest rules and upload restrictions here.
Teachers, remember to bring in your current teacher ID or classroom photo during Teacher Appreciation Week to get $10 off a pair of Cobb Hill shoes at any of our neighborhood locations! Thank you for all you do!
Your friends at Schuler Shoes
EDIT: Due to an overwhelming response, we will be announcing our Teacher Appreciation award winners on Monday. Thank you so much for your patience and thanks again for everything you do! We’re so excited about our entries!
