5 Amazing Deals Minnesota Teachers Should Take Advantage Of

Getting ready to prepare your classrooms for the 2017-2018 school year? Be sure to look at these amazing deals first!

It’s no secret that teachers deserve a break. Most teachers spend an average of $500 a year on supplies for their classroom out of their own pocket. Additionally, the average teacher salary in Rochester is estimated at $56,987 per year.

You don’t have to be a math expert to know that these supplies are taking a sizeable chunk of change out of a hard earned salary.
