                 TEACHER
                             I
                                     f you pay attention to public education, you’ve heard of “achievement gaps.”
                                     Well, when EdUCate! switched from teacher-written grant applications to
                                     its current technology focus, we created a few gaps of our own—gaps in

                 WISH LIST           what teachers need day-to-day, and what they have.
                                         Luckily EdUCate’s web guru, Glenn Castan, built a Teacher Wish List


                   UPDATE
                                     web portal where teachers can easily post their needs and donors can easily
                             donate to fulfill them, with no ads, no spam, no surcharges.
                                 In January we told our 253 teachers about the program, and we went live in
                             February. By May UC donors had granted 55 wishes, including a last-ditch plea
                             from the high school newspaper to underwrite its last two issues. Teachers asked for
                             everything from colored pencils to dissecting kits to printers, costing from $8 to
                             $500, and you responded. Our EdUCate! treasurer and a board member coordinated
                             all the receipts, checks, thank you e-mails, etc.
                                 Look for new postings to the Wish Lists in the fall. You can search by school
                             and pay for all or part of any listed item.
