Founder Q&A: How We’re Supporting Teachers and Students This Back-to-School Season

As summer comes to a close, it's time to start thinking about back-to-school season. This year, we’re focused on making a difference in the lives of students and teachers. Throughout the month of August, we’ll be donating a portion of all proceeds to AdoptAClassroom, a non-profit organization that provides resources and support to teachers and their classrooms. 

We sat down with Ying Gong, President and co-founder of TickTalk, to learn more about why she chose AdoptAClassroom and how customers can get involved in this initiative. So grab a cup of coffee and read on to learn how you can help make a difference in education this back-to-school season.

Why did you choose AdoptAClassroom for this month’s TickTalk Gives charity?

For this month's TickTalk Gives program, we selected AdoptAClassroom because of their innovative approach to addressing the challenges faced by teachers in today's educational landscape. By directly funding classroom projects and providing essential supplies, AdoptAClassroom empowers teachers to create the best possible learning experiences for their students, which is a goal that resonates strongly with our entire team.

Why do you think it’s important to support teachers?

It's crucial to support teachers because they are the driving force behind our children's educational success. Teachers not only instruct students in various subjects, but also play a key role in developing their critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills. By supporting teachers, we are investing in the future success of our children and our society as a whole.

You have a school-aged daughter. What impact have her teachers had on her?

I believe that differentiated instruction and teaching tailored to individual students' needs are incredibly important because every child has unique strengths and challenges. Teachers should recognize and address these differences, encouraging students to discover their potential. 

I am fortunate that my daughter's teachers have been exceptionally skilled in this regard. My daughter's teachers have had a profound impact on her growth and development. They have provided her with a supportive and nurturing environment that has allowed her to explore her interests, develop her talents, and cultivate a strong sense of self. By employing differentiated instruction and teaching methods, they have been able to address her individual needs and strengths, fostering her growth in a personalized way. 

Supporting teachers is a cause that's close to our hearts at TickTalk, and we're proud to donate a portion of the month’s proceeds to AdoptAClassroom to help make a difference in classrooms across the country. As we discussed, teachers play a critical role in shaping the future of our children and our society. By providing them with the resources they need to succeed, we're investing in a brighter future for all of us. And as parents, we’ve seen firsthand the positive impact that great teachers can have on a child's life. By empowering teachers, we're not just helping them - we're helping their students and future generations as well. So join us in supporting AdoptAClassroom this back-to-school season by shopping TickTalk 4 smartwatches, and let's help make a difference in the lives of students and teachers alike.
