It’s that time of year again! You’re coming into the home stretch now, and while you may feel burnt out, beat up or exhausted by now, at least there’s Teacher Appreciation Week (May 8-15) to give you a little shot in the arm to keep going.
Hopefully, you’re feeling the love from parents or administrators this month (“Yes, thank you, chocolate is always welcomed.”) The savvy teacher will also be on the lookout for Teacher Appreciation Specials that various brands may feature online or in stores this month. Many brands also keep up the teacher appreciation deals all year round with special discounts and offers.
The NJ Teachers’ Lounge staff is always on the hunt for educator-specific deals, so we’ve compiled a quick list here of some Teacher Appreciation specials running this month, and throughout the year. Be sure to visit our Deals & Discounts page often to keep up with our latest finds, too.
