As soon as the announcement went out that the Baltimore Teacher Supply Swap is closing, the responses–from families, teachers, others–began to pour in.
It was “overwhelming,” says board member Alessa Giampaolo Keener. “There were lots of encouraging words from the community.”
There are also some offers of potential financial support. While Tuesday’s announcement about the closure made no mention of plans to reopen, Keener says those offers–plus the outpouring of support from locals–have board members mulling a comeback.
