National Teacher Registry
The National Teacher Registry is a new and no cost service for teachers and schools, public and private, pre-school through college. On it, a teacher or school can create a Wish List of the items that they need and want for their classroom. There are currently over 70,000 school supply items from national suppliers and discounters available with no markup for you to put on your Wish List. Many more products are in the process of being added. Once a Wish List, is created, a direct link to the registry can be sent by the teacher or school to parents and friends. Items can be delivered directly to the teacher or school. In many cases this is a charitable donation which can be deducted on the purchaser's tax return. Visit: www.NationalTeacherRegistry.com
