Q: Do I have to do anything to be able to shop at Teachers Warehouse?
A: Yes. First-time shoppers must fill out a shopper's log, indicating where they teach, grade level/position, number of students, and contact information. You must verify employment on your first visit with a valid school I.D., pay stub or letter from the administration office.
