  2. I am a student teacher and graduate in May. All these supplies would be so helpful for me to start off my classroom! Love the President items and PEZ is the best! 🙂 Thanks!

  3. Would love any of these but especially the White House Kids book and the brainquest set as I have been out of the classroom for 6 years and now am back in and need more current books and materials!
