Teachers score school supplies at bargain prices at consignment sale
DENVER -- Kids aren’t the only ones needing school supplies. Teachers need them, too. Teachers on average spend five hundred dollars a year on school supplies for their students out of their own pockets. When Jefferson County grade school teacher Gwen Vann recently retired she realized she had a lot of leftover school supplies, then had an idea. “I had a garage sale after I retired. It took two trucks to get my materials from my kindergarten class into my home. It sat in the garage two years. Finally had a garage sale and the teachers were so excited when they came.”
