Hats off to teachers.
They sure work their butts off helping educate our kids. Often with little fanfare.
I’ll admit that I’m a little more sensitive to this because I have so many family members that are teachers.
The beginning to the school year is right around the corner. If there’s any group of people that could use some extra love at the cash register, I say it is teachers.
And many area retailers agree with me. So much so that they are offering teachers some pretty sweet discounts as a way to say thank you for their contribution. If you are a teacher or know one, here’s a list of places offering teachers discount in Arlington.
