Teaching is one of the hardest but sometimes most rewarding professions. I have met many teachers who buy out of pocket school supplies so no child will go without. Now with all these wonderful school deals going on, remember the teacher. Pick up an extra pack of pencils, pens, paper etc. and give it to your child’s classroom teacher.
