New Teacher Classroom Support

Three new teachers pose with their Issaquah Schools Foundation tote bags.Foundation donors welcome new teachers with $100 in classroom start-up funds and local business coupons to help them set up their classrooms.

"Knowing I live in a community that values its educators helped me succeed as a first-year teacher," said Jaci Belur, who started teaching history at Issaquah High School in 2014.

Belur used her funds to purchase flipchart paper and atlases her students use daily. Belur is well acquainted with our district's great schools. A graduate of Issaquah High School, Belur knew she wanted to return as a teacher.

"I had such a positive educational experience in the district,” she says. “I wanted to share the same passion for learning that my teachers gave me."
