As an educator, I see the difference my colleagues and I are making in the lives of the children we serve each day. As a parent, I deeply appreciate the care and service that teachers give to my son on a daily basis. Each day when I send him off to school, I know my son is in good hands and I trust that his needs will be met. This business of educating children is hard work.
During September, Dollar General and Proctor & Gamble are teaming up to celebrate schools and educators everywhere who are making a difference in the lives of their students through its Everyday 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.”
When she is not busy helping her students succeed, Kimberly is spending time with her husband and two daughters.
