This special Educator Appreciation Program is one more example of doing what is right - in this case, honoring the important role our teachers have in our children’s lives.

In conjunction with Teacher Appreciation Week, Republic Wireless announces significant teacher discounts as part of a new Educator Appreciation Program. This initiative will provide K-12 teachers and support staff with 50% off their cell phone bills when activated with a valid school email address. In concert with the Educator Appreciation Program, Republic Wireless is also sponsoring and delivering Teacher Appreciation Baskets on behalf of local parents within the Raleigh, NC area. Parents within the local area had the opportunity to nominate their children’s teachers to receive a gift basket, which includes a gift card to a local restaurant, a variety of classroom supplies, and a variety of self-care indulgences and snacks.
“Since day one, we’ve tried to be different than the average cell phone service provider, being first to do industry-leading things like eliminating contracts, early termination fees, and funny business in the fine print,” says Jon Schniepp, senior vice president of product & marketing. “This special Educator Appreciation Program is one more example of doing what is right - in this case, honoring the important role our teachers have in our children’s lives.”
“While technology plays a critical and useful role in our nation’s classrooms, screen addiction has become an increasing challenge for parents outside the classroom. It is often teachers who help instill healthy screen habits for our children. They are at the forefront of creating experiences and making connections, and are shaping the future of our nation's youth.”
For the general public, Republic’s My Choice cell phone plan offers unlimited talk & text at $15/month with $5 for each gigabyte of high speed data, which can be applied and removed as needed. Most Republic Wireless members today are on a $20 cell phone plan; meaning teachers can enjoy data plans starting as low as $10 monthly, with $7.50/month for unlimited talk & text and just $2.50 per gigabyte of high speed data.
“We hope this small token of our appreciation will allow K-12 teachers and support staff to save money and avoid the stress associated with worrying about their cell phone bills. Our goal is to give them more money back in their pockets to spend on the people and experiences that matter most to them,” says Schniepp.
