  • Got Candy?

    Ms. G. is asking for $293.16:
    My students need some candy for motivation, positive reinforcement, and to help get them through the day.

    Evidently people like to place their own values and judge others. Let the teacher teach and let them request what they feel is needed to do their work. I'm not sure why so many people are judging the teacher who made this requests. I'm sure people wouldn't be complaining if she requested stickers...so what's the big deal with candy? Ugh.
