I've taught in three states and have never been so lucky as to have such a wonderful teacher resource. Most teachers don't make enough money to afford to buy all they would like for their students and classroom. Teaching Tools is truly offering an invaluable service to our children." ~Tamara, Teacher at Palm River Elementary

We encourage teachers to take advantage of the Teaching Tools Supply Store. The store is open year round so you can save thousands of dollars each year by coming to visit! The type of product you will receive at the store ranges from the basics, such as pencils, pens, crayons, markers, glue and colored pencils to paper, folders, backpacks, personal care items, new and used books, incentive items and arts and crafts. In addition, teachers can choose from items such as binders, deskware and stationery, which are surplus from businesses in the community.

Teachers are eligible to shop at the Teaching Tools Supply Store through three avenues:

Full-Service Shopper Program

Each full-time teacher at the Title-I schools served by the program can shop for free supplies once per month during shopping hours. The average monthly shopping trip is valued at $200! Click here to see a list of all full-service schools and education sites.

One Representative Shopper Program

Title-I schools that are part of this category have one representative who shops for the entire school. Since the representative is shopping for the school as a whole, they are allowed four times the amount of an average shopping trip, which means they often leave with up to $1,000 worth of supplies each month! To learn who the representative is for your school, please call (813) 574-0287. Click here to see a list of all one-rep schools and education sites.

Volunteer to Shop Program

Any full-time public school teacher who works for a one-rep school or for a school Teaching Tools does not currently serve can volunteer for three hours per month to earn a shopping coupon! To sign up to volunteer, please call (813) 574-0287.

*Teachers must be on the roster list we receive from their school and bring their teacher ID each month for entrance into the store.

"I thank you for giving my art teacher crayons, colored pencils, paper, tape and folders. You are working hard. I appreciate it. I love you. You are helpful. I will never forget what you did for us." ~ Angelica, Student
