Here are some of the things our teachers have said:
"I cannot thank you enough for all the wonderful supplies I have be able to obtain on every shopping trip!! I am a new teacher and teach in a school where most students cannot provide their own school supplies. With being online to in person, back to online and now back to in person learning.......I am so fortunate to be able to provide all of my students with resources to use all year no matter where their learning took place! Crayons, pencils, erasers, sharpeners, colored pencils, and composition books/homework packs were a necessity that I could not provide without your generosity. Myself and my students are forever grateful for your support. We love Teacher's Treasures!!"

"Teachers’ Treasures has been instrumental in helping me supply teachers in 9 non-pub schools with supplies. The staff at TT are exceptional, especially Hanna who is always cheerful and welcoming. I’m SO appreciative of all the TT staff do to obtain supplies for us and to keep us safe!"-Sher D., PreK-12th Grade SPED teacher
"It is hard to explain to non-educators the value of a pencil. Most people do not understand that many students come to school with little to no school supplies (especially in a low-income school). Coming from a relatively wealthy family, my parents would take me back-to-school shopping every fall. I had all the tools I needed to stay organized and scholarly. Most of my students are not so lucky, so Teacher’s Treasures has truly allowed me to bring the back-to-school shopping to my students.
When I first began teaching, I would spend over $30 a year just on pencils. Every time a student took a pencil from my class without returning it, I would feel my blood pressure rise. I was spending my own money and sanity on such a minor school supply. Now, with Teacher’s Treasures in my life, I do not ever have to buy another pencil for my students. And I rarely spend my own money on any school supply. I have accumulated enough supplies, that I have a small free bookstore in my classroom where students can go to get any basic (and some not-so-basic) supplies they would need. In a normal school year, I often tell my high school math students to glue paper cut-outs into their notes. Because of COVID this year, I have been trying to avoid students sharing supplies in class. Through Teacher’s Treasures, though, I have accumulated enough glue sticks that I was able to give a glue stick to every single student to keep. The ability to provide my students with pencils, glue sticks, binders, folders, notebooks, markers, erasers, and so many other supplies has removed a huge financial and stress-inducing burden from myself and my students. Thank you, Teacher’s Treasures!"-Natalie O., Wayne Township Math Teacher
