How do teachers make ends meet within a limited budget? Many times they take to sites like Donorschoose.org to fund activities and projects for the classroom. In addition, through this episode we seek to discuss grant opportunities available for teachers. This talk is all about expanding the possibilities of what teachers can do for their classrooms without monetary limitations. Hosted by Oscar Cielos Staton from The Teach Cow Network at TeachCow.com.
Featured guests are:

Oscar Cielos Staton began his teaching career in 1998 while continuing his passion for film production in Texas. He quickly developed an affinity for working with low socioeconomic Hispanic families. “The lives of my students,” he says “very much mirror the life I once had as an immigrant in this country in a public elementary school. Actually, I tell them they are lucky because they have other students similar to them in the same classroom. My experience was that of a true minority in the classroom. Only one other student in my class spoke Spanish!” As a teacher, he established himself as someone in touch with the student experience. Nowadays Oscar continues his educational journey with the Teach Cow website and his podcast Teachers Talk Live, which brings together teachers from all over the world for talks on K-12 Education.
