How Much Teachers REALLY Spend On Back To School.

You’ll be surprised at how much and WHAT teachers have to spend out of their own pocket!

We LOVE our teachers! I mean…my mother in law is a special ed teacher and I know for a fact what a tough job that is as I’ve gone in to job shadow her a few times.

It’s sad to say but educators are not only overlooked and under-appreciated, but also overworked and underpaid. Every year, they’re left to educate our kids with minimal resources. And how much teachers spend on back-to-school each year highlights just how tragically we, as a nation, are failing our educators.

About AJ

Your afternoon host AJ has been in Seattle for over 5 years and SO much has happened in his life since moving here. He and his wife of 7 years Nicole, had their first baby (Max...he is now 2) and they bought their first home here. When AJ isn't on the air, at a sporting event supporting one of our local teams (ESPECIALLY the Sounders and Seahawks) or hosting an event for one of the organizations that he works with including Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, March For Babies, Susan G Komen and Washington Trails Association, he is more than likely climbing a mountain! "I love everything this place has to offer, from world-class entertainment, to the incredible food to all of its natural beauty with so many amazing mountains and trails at our doorstep! I LOVE the Pacific Northwest and am proud to call it home and do what I love to do with an incredible group of people."
