Where to find teacher discounts

With school back in session in about 5 weeks, it’s not a bad idea to start thinking ahead. If you are an educator, there are a few opportunities for you save money while outfitting your classroom (or yourself!)

Target announced that they will be bringing back their 15% off discount on school supply items for teachers, running the week of July 13th. Since 2018 was so successful, they have expanded the sale to include not just school supplies and essentials but also disinfecting wipes, food storage bags, adult clothing and accessories, Pillowfort furniture and Bullseye’s Playground items.

USA Today says “Target is working with third-party verification service SheerID to verify eligibility. Sign up for the coupon – valid July 13-20 in stores and online – at Target.com/teacherprep.

The discount is geared toward K-12 teachers, but Target will also offer the savings to teachers working at day care centers, early childhood learning centers and home schooling parents and teachers.”

4. Priced at $5,750,000. 4 bd, 7 ba, 7,696 square feet

2301 E Alameda Avenue, Denver, CO 80209

Six years ago, a talented team of craftsmen, architects and landscape designers undertook the ambitious renovation of this beautiful 1932 Tudor home that was originally designed by noted local architects Fisher & Fisher. Known for designing bride’s delights, (first homes for young married couples), this home was no exception – it was a wedding gift from the grandson of Colorado’s second Governor John Evans to his daughter Alice Evans and her husband Hudson Moore. The setting is simply spectacular — overlooking the Denver Country Club golf course, downtown and mountains, with views forever protected by recorded deed. Landscape architects Vogel and Associates (Palmilla in Cabo San Lucas, Devil’s Thumb Ranch in Grand County, CO) designed the 1.3 acres to recapture the original beauty of the landscape, rose gardens and views. A flagstone patio, outdoor kitchen and firepit are a few of the outdoor highlights. The 2013/2014 renovation preserved the home’s history but added modern touches by combining small inefficient rooms into spaces that are more suitable for today’s style of living. Thick walls, original plaster ceilings and custom leaded glass windows pay respect to the past, with new HVAC, plumbing, electrical and Control4 systems providing the best of today’s technology. Gracious rooms are perfect for entertaining. All four bed room suites are located on the second floor and each has its own private bathroom. Other features include a walk-in vault, a restored Otis elevator servicing all three floors, a four-season greenhouse, wine cellar, exercise room and two attached garages with space for four cars plus extra storage. Minutes to Wash Park and Cherry Creek shops, restaurants and bike path. Easy access to downtown Denver and 1-25.
