Teacher Wish List
I know it’s still July, but some schools are starting soon! Can you believe it?
Have you received a wish list from a teacher friend this summer? Or if you’re a teacher, have you created a wish list?
As a former elementary school teacher, the daughter and daughter-in-law of teachers, and a friend to countless teachers, I know for sure that many teachers spend A LOT of money on their classroom supplies. They do it because they love the children, and they want them to have a rich and fulfilling school year.
Of course, we also know that teachers aren’t exactly high on the salary scale. So I was super excited when I saw so many teachers making an Amazon Wish List and then sharing it with family, friends, and on social media. It’s a great way to get help with some of those basic necessities.
So here’s what you can do:
- If you’ve received a Wish List from a teacher or have seen one on social media, consider looking at the list and purchasing something for them. You just have to pick an item from the list, pay for it (items are often less than $10), and it will get shipped to the teacher. SUPER EASY!
- If you haven’t received or seen a Wish List but have children in school or have teacher friends, ask them if they have a Wish List. Maybe they have one already or maybe it will prompt them to make one!
- If you’re a teacher, there’s some good information HERE about creating a Wish List. Like I said, I’ve seen quite a few friends receive some great stuff this summer and it can’t hurt for you to have one also.
- And if you just want to send something extra to class with your child on that first day of school, something special for the teacher, check out Amazon’s list here. Just scroll through page after page of great items for the classroom, and pick something to spread a little joy to your favorite teacher!
