More than 90% of teachers in the United States demonstrate incredible generosity by spending an average of $500 to $1,000 from their own pockets to provide essential school supplies for their classrooms. At Tidewater, we deeply value educators, and that's why we are committed to supporting them all year long with a 25% discount on our products.

Last year, we launched a campaign with the goal of fulfilling the wish lists of a lucky teacher. The response from both teachers and our customers was overwhelmingly positive, making it a heartwarming experience for everyone involved. We are absolutely thrilled to announce the return of this heartwarming initiative.

Our small business has set aside $1,000 to fulfill the classroom wish list(s) of the winner(s). In addition, our website customers can contribute to the Teacher Wish List Fund while placing online orders. Those funds will be used to fill even wishlist items for additional teachers!

Teachers wishing to participate, simply head over to the campaign posts your favorite social media platform (Instagram, Facebook, or TikTok) and share your wish list in the comments section. Just like last year, we expect to witness numerous wish lists being fulfilled by kind and anonymous Tidewater customers, retail partners and sales team members. Let's make this year's campaign even more memorable and spread the spirit of support and care among our amazing teachers! The contest runs from 8/1/23 through 8/10/23 with the winner being chosen on 8/11/23.

My Favorite Teacher

Ms. Albright was the teacher whose impact on my life extended far beyond academics; she instilled in me a belief in myself that has guided me to where I am today. For that, I will be forever grateful.
