When Melissa Badeker stopped teaching elementary school, she didn’t know what to do with all of the material she had accumulated, supplies she purchased with her own money. Sensing this problem was widespread, Melissa created the Baltimore Teacher Supply Swap to collect and distribute free school supplies for educators, home school parents, and daycare operators. Melissa Badeker recently received an OSI-Baltimore community fellowship to support her idea.
