How much of your own $ have you spent getting your classroom and teaching tools ready for SY 2015-2016. Fortunately, a nice list of national businesses give teachers a discount on purchases of various types. Some of these are quite formal and require registration – like Barnes and Noble Teacher discount. Others seem to be like a “flash your teacher ID” and save.
In perusing this list, I discovered the International Teacher Identification Card. It’s clearly a money making operation for someone as the base level card is $25 (plus shipping!?!). If it truly provides as many as discounts internationally as it claims to, it might be the teacher equivalent of the well-known AAA travel discounts.
