A Day Made Better

OfficeMax and and Mom It Forward have teamed up to create awareness about the issue of teacher-funded classrooms and to give you the opportunity to get involved and help a teacher in your community on behalf of the “A Day Made Better".

I would like to nominate Charles (Billy) Thompson at Evansville Christian School to win $100 in OfficeMax classroom supplies. According to my children he does many things to make his class interesting thus getting the kids interested in history. My daughter loves history now because he made it fun to learn and relevant.

He does everything in his power to deliver the best possible education for his students. He makes classes interactive. For example, when my daughter was studying the civil war, they reenacted a war scene using paper balls.

He is very innovative to find ways to make the history info relevant to the kids today. He uses humor to make learning history fun. You can tell he has a genuine passion for education and shares this enthusiasm in the classroom. Since he works at a Christian school, it is not supported by the government, and funds are tight. He could definitely use the OfficeMax Gift card for essential school supplies.
