Teachers Can Get Discounts on Clothes & Shoes From These Brands

Going back to school this year has been a hot button issue amid concerns over rising coronavirus cases. One thing that teachers can look forward to this year are great discounts on shoes and apparel from some of their favorite retailers.

It’s important that teachers are comfortable in order to succeed. Since teachers spend over eight hours a day on their feet in front of a classroom, it’s important to have easy to walk in shoes and comfortable clothes to do so. Many retailers recognize this need and in honor of their dedication to public education, so they are offering teachers discounts.  For many of these brands, all you have to do is verify yourself through sites like ID.me and SheerID or show proof of work with a valid ID if making purchases in-store. The process is pain-free and simple, offering the educators in our life a simple way to save some coin.
