Back-to-school season is here! And in all the excitement about buying those fall clothes and colorful folders for the kids, it’s easy to forget that teachers need to buy school supplies too, often with their own money. It takes a lot of stuff to prep for the year, and teachers need to stock up to make sure they’re ready for whatever gets thrown at them. So we pulled together an array of amazing Amazon Prime Day deals perfect for teachers, as well as for students. For teachers, we discovered bulk items the entire class can use, like 30 dry-erase boards (plus a special laptop bag just for the head of the class). And for kids, we found two of the best-priced backpacks around—one sporty, one mythical. So get in gear—and have a great year.
