posted by: Alix | January 03, 2012, 07:08 PM   

Let's face it, budgets are tight and after an expensive holiday season, there are no shortages of "penniless teachers" across the country. In examining the resolutions of countless teachers this new year, saving money seems to top many lists. While most educators often foot the bill for classroom projects and supplies, a new blog called Penniless Teacher, provides a one-stop-shop for classroom teachers seeking easy funding opportunities via current listings of teacher scholarships and grants, teacher contests, and teacher giveaways.

Why spend your hard-earned dollars on classroom supplies or projects when there are countless opportunities to receive the funding from educational companies, associations, and non-profits? Penniless Teacher does the work for you in scouring the web for the latest teacher offers. A quick few minutes on their blog could save you hundreds and give you and your students' new and exciting ideas this New Year.

The blog can be accessed online via their website, or through convenient Facebook and Twitter posts, updated nearly daily.

Penniless Teacher recently highlighted AAE's own 2012 Spring National Scholarship and Grant contest. Don't forget to mark your calendar for the March 1, 2012 deadline. Apply online today!

So, here's to saving money and funding new and innovative projects in the New Year! Happy 2012!
