It’s Teacher Appreciation Week and we have the full list of freebies and discounts

It is Teacher Appreciation Week — and you know what that means?

Tons of freebies and discounts for the people who deserve it most.

So — to the underappreciated teachers everywhere:

Between telling everyone “to be quiet or else” and seriously contemplating bringing your new Starbucks tumbler to class (that you could almost definitely fit an entire bottle of Riesling in) — scour this article and start planning your week full of “treat-yo-self.”

The dates of the offers as well as the participation can vary by location so it may behoove you to check before heading out to one of the below spots to avoid having to give a lecture (because teachers: you do enough of that already.)
