Clearlake teacher awarded $1,000 bonus through TCC’s national sweepstakes

TCC, one of the nation’s largest Verizon authorized retailers and a subsidiary of Round Room, LLC, has awarded Tracy Young of Clearlake Creativity School in Clearlake, Calif., a $1,000 Amazon gift card through a nationwide sweepstakes.

This came as a part of TCC’s annual Teachers Rock initiative, which commenced in February.

The $1,000 Amazon gift card sweepstakes by TCC aimed to help teachers enhance their classrooms for student learning experiences.

More than 1,700 teachers registered for a chance to win one of 10 gift cards, where Young was randomly selected as a winner.

The non-winning teachers will still receive a gift from TCC on Teacher Appreciation Day (May 2) to thank them for their efforts.

With their $1,000 Amazon gift card, Young plans to utilize the gift card for classroom supplies for P.E. and art classes, along with additional reading books students wanted in their library.

“I am excited to use this generous gift from TCC to purchase some sensory seats, and wiggle seats to put around my classroom’s U shape table, as well as stock up on supplies such as pencils, sharpeners, erasers, papers, journals, paint, dry-erase boards, markers, etc.” Young expressed. “This recognition has me speechless and I can’t thank TCC enough for seeing the value educators, like myself, bring to our students daily.”

The sweepstakes was attached to TCC’s Teachers Rock initiative, which celebrated its 10th edition this year. TCC created the program in 2014 to give back to and show appreciation toward teachers nationwide. This year, TCC allocated funds to its retail stores to shower local teachers with love and support during the middle of a busy academic year. Each store selected a group of teachers to give back to, with appreciation efforts spanning from catered meals and gift cards, to an assortment of sweets, school supply kits and much more.

“TCC is proud to support these 10 teachers, including Tracy Young, and all educators across our nation who make invaluable impacts on the lives of students,” said Scott Moorehead, CEO of Round Room and TCC. “Teachers are some of the hardest working individuals we have in society today, and all of us at TCC are proud to provide tokens of appreciation toward them each year through our Teachers Rock initiative.”
