The annual back-to-school scramble can be hectic for both teachers and parents alike. While educators are rushing to create and distribute their school supply and wish lists, parents are preparing to arm their kids with everything they’ll need for a successful school year. To help make the process easier on everyone, School Family Media is proud to launch TeacherLists.com, an interactive website where parents and teachers can connect on much-needed classroom supplies throughout the school year.
Formerly known as TeacherWishList.com, the revitalized site now allows all teachers to easily load and update their classroom’s must-have supply lists, as well as their wish lists. Parents can also easily access the site online, keeping them up to date on exactly what their children need for the classroom, as well as what teachers dream of receiving to create their quintessential learning environment.
TeacherLists.com was created to not only help connect teachers and parents, but to also help alleviate out-of-pocket spending by our nation’s teachers. On average, teachers spend $486 of their own money each year on classroom supplies alone. Through TeacherLists.com, teachers will be able to spend less time worrying about classroom supplies and more time inspiring the next generation.
“Combining both school supply lists and teacher wish lists into one comprehensive site allows both parents and teachers to save time and connect more easily,” said School Family Media founder & president, Tim Sullivan. “TeacherLists.com perfectly streamlines parent-teacher communication, ultimately benefiting every classroom and every student.”
The TeacherLists.com tool offers an easy approach to getting school supplies for your child or classroom. Teachers or school volunteers can simply load their school supply lists, as well as their wish lists into the TeacherLists.com interface, allowing parents easy viewing and printing access from their home computer or mobile device.
What’s more, through the site’s social media channels, parents and school districts can easily alert teachers when classroom purchases have been made and broadcast supply requests.
With the support of key sponsors, TeacherLists.com is also launching reward programs that will help provide free school supplies to participating teachers and schools. Together Bounty® Paper Towels, a National Presenting Sponsor, Elmer’s, a Supporting Sponsor, Puffs® Facial Tissues, Avery-Dennison and Mr. Clean, will be providing free products that will be distributed throughout the 2012 back-to-school season to participating teachers and schools. Complete details on prize programs can be found on TeacherLists.com.
“Bounty is proud to help launch TeacherLists.com in support of our nation’s educators,” notes David Lee, Brand Manager of Bounty paper towels, the lead sponsor of the effort. “For years, Bounty has been dedicated to enriching the learning environments for students and teachers everywhere. A well-stocked classroom can help children and teachers bring their best to the classroom each and every day.”
Parents and teachers can get started by visiting TeacherLists.com.
