Dollar General/P&G Every Day Heroes Campaign and a Great #Giveaway!

The kids are heading back to school this year in a few short days! The core of teaching and the school systems are the teachers who work so hard, to make sure your child is properly educated year round! It is really the teachers who are the crux of the school system!

In celebration of educators everywhere, Dollar General is teaming with Procter & Gamble® to honor our nation’s schools and teachers who make a difference in the lives of children through its Every Day Heroes program. The Every Day Heroes campaign honors educators who teach students to be their best by offering great savings on school supplies and other products for the heroes closest to our hearts.

Dollar General has a strong commitment to education through the Dollar General Literacy Foundation and believes learning to read, earning a GED or learning the English language are investments that opens doorways for personal, professional and economic growth.

During September, Dollar General is recognizing Kimberly Shearer, an English teacher and library science teacher at Boone County High School in Florence, Ky., as its Every Day Hero.  As an eight-year veteran of Boone County High School, her commitment to educating our youth and advocating for 21st century literary skills through the use of technology helped earn her the title of “Kentucky Teacher of the Year.”Screen Shot 2013-08-24 at 2.55.12 PM

    My stepdaughter – she’s not a teacher yet (she’s in her last year of college), but already she is a Big Sister in the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program, she’s been an RA and mentored students, and she recently shaved her head as part of a fundraiser for pediatric cancer. Now she’s considering joining Teach Across America or AmeriCorp for one year after graduation so that she can serve in low income/high need areas. She’s definitely my Every Day Hero.

  2. Kristin says

    My niece — she’s a teacher at a school in a very poor neighborhood, so the kids have all kinds of challenges. However, she is so devoted and committed to these kids and helping them do their best, and trying to make their school day as positive and as rewarding as she possibly can…it’s really amazing and heart-warming. She has been offered jobs at other schools in other neighborhoods, where it would be “easy” compared to where she is now, but she refuses to go, because she won’t abandon the kids who depend on her and love her.

    My Neighbor Lydia, She Does So Much To Make Our Community Better. She Really Goes Above And Beyond To Make A Difference Throughout Our Neighborhood!

  4. Jenna Wood says

    My bestie helps as a student aid for the handicap at the high school we attended, this would be great for her!

  5. Catarina says

    I’m an ESL Teacher and I would love to nominate my colleagues that I work with because we do everything we can do to help our students excel.

  6. Mary Cloud says

    My son’s teacher – she does a lot to help the kids even outside of the school doors

  7. sandra davis says

    i would recommend my best friend. she is a teachers aid. she works with special needs kids and she is so awesome doing it. her kids just love her to death.

  8. says

    I’d recommend my husband. He works hard to place great teachers in his school system. He also puts programs in place so that the students can really succeed, no matter their needs or ability levels.

  9. says

    I have a friend that is in her 4th year teaching and she does a back to school event every year for someone in her neighborhood that is in need. This year one of her kids had a dad that was the victim of a horrible crime, he was mistaken for another man and survived a knife attack. The family has been struggling because the dad was the main breadwinner and the mom has 3 kiddos to care for and the dad in the hospital after a month still. Its great to see the community come together but its even greater to see my friend put together these community events every year to get the kids excited and raise money for someone at the same time.

  10. Janet F says

    My children are grown and I don’t personally know any teachers to recommend this to.

  11. Les Johnson says

    I would recommend one of my daughter’s teachers. She is very dedicated to “her kids” as she refers to them. She often stays late at school to help kids and donates many supplies out of her own pocket.

  12. Kristie D. says

    I would recommend the teachers that teach GED classes in our town. They work so hard and so long and they really do care! kristiedonelson(at)gmail(dot)com Thank you.

  13. Marsha H. says

    I teach and so I see teachers all the time. It would be very difficult for me to select just one out of so many fabulous teachers.

  14. Pamela Halligan says

    A teacher from the Highlands School, a school for children with learning disabilities. I used to work there in administrative and was struck by the dedication of the teachers.

  15. Jamie Brigham says

    My grandma, she raised not only her 5 kids while working 2-3 jobs at a time, she also raised me (My mom was 16 when I was born). She has been through more in her life then 10 people combined. She’s been a rock in our family especially to me as my mom and dad died before I was 16 years old. She also just came off of life support and dialysis as well as her 3rd stage breast cancer shrinking to a stage 1 or less… all with only oxygen and dialysis. 3 Dr’s said that she would never make it off of life support, her cancer would never cure and she’d be on dialysis for the rest of her life…. 3 strikes & the drs. are out.

  16. Becky VanGinkel says

    I would recommend my sons teacher from last year, his fourth grade teacher because she is one of the few teachers I have met that is all about teaching AND being there for the kids. She always has time for each of her students weather it’s to walk them to their locker to hear one of their stories, help them after school with their homework, or tell them a joke to get a smile :)

  17. Britty Brannon says

    I would actually nominate my kindergarten teacher. Im 24 now,but she will always be the most inspiring and important teacher in my life.

  18. Sherry Conrad says

    My son in law- he’s a veteran with ptsd due to his service (3x in the war zone), a volunteer firefighter and an emt and still he does what needs to be done, takes care of his family, has a more than full time job and still he does everything he can to help others.

  19. Virginia says

    My niece-in-law Breckan Holst, who teaches 4th grade in a school in South Korea. It is a new school there and she transferred from one where no one spoke English except the children she was teaching English to. No staff contact and other problems made it difficult.
