Lady Gaga: Substitute Teacher

Most of us had the occasional substitute teacher in school, but we bet they were never quite like the one that came to this Los Angeles classroom:

Today we are thrilled to unveil this important message starring our very own co-founder, Lady Gaga, as part of our partnership with Staples and DonorsChoose.org! Check out the video – and share it with your friends and family! – to see how Lady Gaga brought an extra dose of kindness with her when she visited a middle school earlier this month.

Staples, through their Staples for Students program, helps to make sure students have the materials and resources they need to learn and teachers across America use DonorsChoose.org to fund projects that address their students’ needs. Together, we’re teaming up to support positive school climates and inspire kinder classrooms.

According to a report by Sesame Workshop, 86% of teachers and 70% of parents say they worry often that the world is an unkind place for children. Born This Way Foundation, Staples, and DonorsChoose.org believe we can change that, starting with our schools.

Just check out these amazing projects teachers are hoping to fund to inspire their students to be kinder and support their emotional wellness:
