Fulcher chosen as Teacher Ambassador

DonorsChoose.org is a nonprofit website that engages the public in supporting public schools. When a teacher posts a classroom project for materials to support their students, they’re funded by our national network of individual donors, companies, and foundations, and we ship the items directly to their school. Teachers at 80% of the nation’s public schools use our site, raising more than $700 million for nearly 500,000 public school teachers’ classrooms. We are excited to bring even more of that classroom funding to Texas. To complete our mission and to bring even more resources to Texas schools, we’ve teamed up with some of our most successful teacher leaders to spread the word.

Mrs. Samantha Fulcher was selected from teachers across the nation to become a DonorsChoose.org Teacher Ambassador, using their hard work and expertise to help new teachers access funding and resources on our site. From thousands of applications, Mrs. Fulcher stood out. As a volunteer Teacher Ambassador, Mrs. Fulcher will be working with teachers across the state and at New Deal Middle School to help them post their first DonorsChoose.org classroom request, helping their peers get extra books, supplies, equipment, and furniture for the school year. The work that Teacher Ambassadors do is above and beyond their classroom duties and shows their commitment to public education, school pride, and unwavering belief in the potential of all students.

“Congratulations, to Mrs. Fulcher on being chosen as a Teacher Ambassador for DonorsChoose.org,” said Middle School Principal Jesus Arenas. “She’s done an awesome job of getting several projects of hers funded via DonorsChoose.org, and will now be able to help others teachers do the same.”

Please join us in congratulating Mrs. Fulcher on this big accomplishment. We feel lucky to have such an amazing educator representing our organization, and helping to bring resources to schools throughout Texas!
