Making a Difference-Get Your Teaching Degree Online

A teacher should be the transmitter of knowledge, cultivation and certain beneficial change.  There has never been a time when teachers knew exactly what the future held for their students. Teaching has always been about not just aspiring to do better, but actually working on doing better.  One method to help teachers provide the best quality education is to support organizations providing financial support to schools. An online education in teaching is one of the quickest ways to become a teacher and make a difference.

A United States based non-profit association called DonorsChoose (donorschoose.org) provides a way for people to donate directly to specific projects at public schools.

The organization collects proposals from teachers and publishes them through the website. Individual donors can select projects and contribute as much as they want. DonorsChoose.org then purchases necessary supplies and provides them to the schools. In addition, donors who contribute $100 or more to a project, or who complete the funding for a project, also receive thank-you notes from students, photographs of the project, and a letter from the teacher.

At this nonprofit website, public school teachers submit their best ideas for materials and experiences that their students —everything from a classroom library, to basketballs, to a field trip to the zoo. Donors can search by areas of interest, learn about classroom needs, and choose to fund the projects that they find most compelling.
