If, like me, you love spreadsheets, for a limited time you can get a T-Shirt to let the world know that spreadsheets are indeed the best. 100% of proceeds go to Thompson-Johnson Scholarship to support student teachers.
The Thompson-Johnson Scholarship
Offsetting the financial challenges of student teaching.
The Thompson-Johnson Scholarship for Teacher Education was created to help education majors at the College of Charleston offset the financial challenges of their student teaching semester, with a preference toward pre-service teachers of color.
Student teaching is, oftentimes, an unpaid internship. Rent, gas, electricity, etc… are all bills that still need to be paid even when a pre-service teacher is engaged in student teaching, and for some this is prohibitive to allowing some to enter the teaching profession. The Thompson-Johnson scholarship aims to provide some financial support for these regular monthly expenses for student teachers to help them to focus on being the best teacher they can be rather than stressing about how they will pay for the gas to get to the school.
