Teacher Wish Lists

Want to show your gratitude to a teacher, but don’t know what to get? The Plymouth Education Foundation has collected wish lists from our teachers and compiled them into a comprehensive Teacher Wish Lists document.

To make a purchase for a particular classroom, simply click on that teacher’s link, which will take you to a specific Amazon wish list. Please confirm that orders are sent to your own address or the address of the school.

As the Foundation notes: “Let’s help them fulfill their classroom wish lists to say THANK YOU for all they do! PJSD teachers and staff overwhelmingly deserve a community who supports them! Thank you all!”
