Pella of Oklahoma Supports Teachers
Posted by Andy Crum on April 13, 2018 in Pella Windows & Doors of Oklahoma
We support our teachers! That’s why until May 31, 2018, we will donate $50 to a teacher or school of the purchaser’s choice for every contract over $1,000 for the purchase of windows or doors from Pella Windows & Doors of Oklahoma.
As parents, we willingly let these people watch over, teach, nurture and love on our kids every day. Parents get to drop off, go about their day and entrust our greatest loves to people who receive very little other than the satisfaction and joy of teaching…they love our kids. They must wipe noses, clean up messes, and feed them all while making sure that our kids are learning everything they need to be successful in life and in academics.
Shouldn’t this profession be treated as one of the most important and noblest jobs in our society? I believe it should. However, teachers are more and more having to take their very small paychecks and reinvest them back into the schools and in supplies because our state government cannot provide the resources needed for them to be fully effective. Many teachers in Oklahoma work 2 or 3 jobs just to make ends meet for their own families.
At Pella of Oklahoma, we support our teachers and believe that the support for our teachers should be overwhelming both financially and emotionally. They should never have to ask or strike to get what is needed for them to be effective at their jobs. They deserve the best that we can provide for them and our kids deserve the best.
