Countdown to Summer

'finds of spring' 

With the brunt of winter behind us,  it's easy to see why Chicagoans like to skip spring and get right to summer.  Good things happen in the summer.  Baseball games, sidewalk cafes, long walks and even longer days.  In the eyes of a teacher, it also means a couple weeks to pull back a bit for a well deserved rest.  (Just before the storm of BTS, of course. )
That is where Chicago Teacher Inc. comes in.  We actually spend most of April and May scouring the country for new product from old and new vendors to inspire teachers to get right back in there!  We thought we would introduce a few finds of spring just to wet your BTS appetite.  Check out our top 3 finds of spring that we recently fell in love with!
