Walgreens recognizes the amazing teachers that go above and beyond to support their students. That’s why they’ve partnered with the ME to WE Foundation to support the WE Teachers program. From July 19 to September 7, together with participating brands like Hershey, Walgreens is committed to supporting teachers in communities across America and Puerto Rico.

About WE Teachers

WE Teachers is a free program that ensures that every teacher in every school nationwide has access to the educational tools and training they need to set them and their students up for future success. Now in its second year, the program provides teachers with resources to help their students become active, engaged citizens, including:

  • Professional Learning opportunities, classroom resources and more
  • A focus on trauma-informed practices, including modules on: pandemic-informed communities, mental well-being, bullying and diversity and inclusion
  • The WE Teachers Award, which recognizes 1,000 teachers that go above and beyond with a $500 Walgreens gift card to use for the classroom

Meet Mandy Currier

Elementary school teacher, Missouri

To help her students deal with trauma, Mandy Currier opens up about the challenges she’s faced to encourage communication. “They have trauma at home, they’re struggling in class, and I’m just trying to get them to love learning, to love coming to school,” says Mandy. It’s all part of her trauma-informed teaching approach, which she’s finding support with through the WE Teachers program.
