At the start of the new school year, the San Antonio Alliance plans to hold Jump Start, an event for new SAISD teachers. The idea is to welcome the new teachers and give them a jump start for their career in SAISD. One of the highlights of the event is the opportunity for the new teachers to “shop” for free instructional materials. We have found that many retiring teachers would like their favorite teaching resources to be passed on to the next generation of teachers to help our students. Or maybe you have changed subjects or grade levels and want to make room for your new materials. If you would like to donate instructional resources for next year’s new teachers, please contact Sylvia Lovelace at firstname.lastname@example.org or at the Alliance office at 210-225-7174. And thanks for paying it forward!
