Great Clips Makes Back To School Easier with #GREATLIST

Thanks to Great Clips for sponsoring today’s discussion.

great clips before and after

Heading back to school can be an exciting time for parents, teachers and children? Parents are excited because they won’t be hearing the I’m bored complaint. Children are excited because they will no longer be bored and they will get to see their friends. Teachers are excited because they get to mold another class of young minds. But what teachers are not excited about is the amount of money they have to spend out of pocket to create a classroom that encourages learning. Did you know that on average, teachers spend as much as $1000 of their own money just to make sure their students have the resources they need to learn. I know when I was the interim music teacher at the local elementary I spent at least that much and I was only there three days a week and I traveled from classroom to classroom. But I have heard of teachers who spend the $1000 and more on their students. It is a sad state when teachers cannot get the much needed resources they need without paying for them out of pocket. That is why when I was approached to work Great Clips to encourage people to download the Great Clips Online Check in App  and in doing so they will make a donation to But they will are also hosting a contest to help not only the teachers as well as the parents.

  2. That is awesome! My boys still haven’t gotten haircuts because they were thinking of growing out their hair. This is great that they ‘re doing this for classrooms. Awesome!

  3. What a great initiative! I had no idea that teachers were putting their own money into supplies – that is disgraceful. Makes me appreciate them even more.

  4. This is a great idea! It is a shame that teacher’s don’t get paid more and then add to that using their own money. Our education system needs an overhaul!

  5. My daughter always uses the Great Clips app. It saves her a lot of time. It’s great that they are doing this.

  6. Working with kids I can so relate. At the end of the day, all we want is to see the children excel no mater the cost.

  7. I love that they are donating to classrooms. As a former school district employee, I can attest to the fact that we all spent a great deal of our own money on supplies.

  8. What a fantastic idea. My mom was a teacher for many many years and she spent so much of the family’s money to make sure she had everything needed. I loved helping her out. Helping is the right thing to do 🙂

  9. hooray for Great Clips! I love their app to save time on the waiting room. Anyway, great campaign!

  10. I love programs that help our schools. I will check out the app and see if it is available in Canada.

  11. I am always amazed at some teacher’s dedication. They really do a lot for their students. It’s nice when teachers are helped too.
