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, 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 Arlinda Davis

First-grade teacher, Alabama

For years, Davis has been as concerned with whether her students feel safe and supported as she is with how they’re performing on reading and math tests. A survivor of trauma herself, Davis is now turning her own life experiences into addressing trauma in her classroom through the WE Teachers trauma-informed classrooms module.
