Less Stress For Teachers Giveaway – Firstmark Credit Union

Firstmark Credit Union is offering a Less Stress for Teachers Giveaway through their Facebook page. The winners will have their choice of a Classroom Makeover with Certified Professional Organizer® Helene Segura, a gift card or an iPad. Each prize is valued at $500. Additionally, 25 winners will receive an autographed copy of Segura’s book Less Stress for Teachers: More Time & An Organized Classroom.

Firstmark Credit Union began working with Segura earlier in the summer. They collaborated on the free planner that Firstmark CU gives out every August to 81,000 educators in schools in the San Antonio metro area.

“We used to be called San Antonio Teachers Credit Union. In fact, our first branch was located at Fox Tech High School. Even though our name changed years ago, we remain committed to educators,” said Kelley Farwell, marketing promotions manager for Firstmark Credit Union. “We believe teachers have an enormous responsibility and a lasting impact within our community. The Academic Planner is just one way we can show our appreciation for everything they do. We wanted to make our free planner for teachers more interactive. That’s where Helene came in.”

Helene Segura taught for over a decade in the Harlandale Independent School district, which is where she honed her organizing and productivity skills. In 2004, she began her transition into the organizing field. She is the owner of LivingOrder® San Antonio and in 2011 published her book, which combines her experiences from both of her careers to help teachers lessen their daily stress. Segura created the monthly tips and resources that teachers will find inside their Academic Planner.

In celebration of their 80th anniversary, Firstmark Credit Union wanted to do even more for educators, so the planner project evolved into the Less Stress for Teachers Giveaway. The contest runs from October 10 – 31, 2012. San Antonio area teachers can enter the giveaway at Firstmark CU’s Facebook page.
