Find­ing the sup­port teach­ers need dur­ing the school year

New Haven Register (Sunday) (New Haven, CT) - - EDUCATION OUTLOOK -

The school year has be­gun, and while the backto-school ex­penses of many par­ents are done for the sum­mer, stu­dents will still have on­go­ing needs through­out the year.

But par­ents are not the only ones who spend their own hard-earned cash to make the school year a suc­cess, and they are not the only ones that can ex­pect the costs to con­tinue through­out the year.

Ac­cord­ing to Bankrate, the av­er­age teacher spends roughly $530 of their own money to pay for sup­plies, snacks and other items for use by their stu­dents dur­ing the school year. These sup­plies of­ten in­clude things like paper, rulers, scis­sors, note­books, pen­cils, glue and poster boards, and while they must be pur­chased at the be­gin­ning of the year, they of­ten must be re­placed through­out the year as well.

While these ex­penses can quickly add up, teach­ers are rarely com­pen­sated for these costs, and yet still cover these in or­der to cre­ate the best ed­u­ca­tional ex­pe­ri­ence for their stu­dents all year long.

Sav­ing money on your ex­penses

For teach­ers, the ex­am­ple above is prob­a­bly all too fa­mil­iar. Ad­di­tional ex­penses small or big can take a toll, so min­i­miz­ing costs here and there is cru­cial. It all be­gins with shop­ping at the right places with the right prices.

Sta­ples, the back-to-school spe­cialty store, al­ways of­fers a di­verse col­lec­tion of name-brand and ex­clu­sive sup­plies, ser­vices and re­sources to meet the de­mands of any class­room. In ad­di­tion, Sta­ples of­fers a 110 per­cent price match guar­an­tee within 14 days.

Per­haps most im­por­tantly, Sta­ples of­fers in-store spe­cial­ists that are al­ways avail­able to help you with your needs, en­sur­ing you get the best sup­port you pos­si­bly can and have all of your ques­tions an­swered.

Sta­ples also car­ries sup­plies all year long, at com­pet­i­tive prices whether it is the sec­ond week of school or the sec­ond se­mes­ter. It is the one-stop des­ti­na­tion for this school year and be­yond.
