Amazon “Clears The List” for hundreds of teachers in the U.S.
This back-to-school season, students and educators are anticipating a more normal return to learning. To help them start the school year off right, Amazon is once again supporting #ClearTheList. The social media movement raises awareness about the lack of classroom supplies and helps teachers access important items on their Amazon Wish Lists.
“When teachers have all their classroom supplies, they can focus on nurturing their students’ curiosity,” said Aris Pangilinan, better known as Mr. P. to his students at Cardozo Education Campus in Washington D.C. Pangilinan is an Amazon Future Engineer Teacher of the Year, recognized for his work inspiring students from underserved and historically underrepresented communities to pursue careers in computer science.
Amazon is committed to supporting educators like Pangilinan and their students. By purchasing items from hundreds of teachers’ Wish Lists this back-to-school season, Amazon is working to ensure teachers can fill their classrooms with the items they need, from essential school supplies like pencils and markers to books to help stock up the classroom library.
Plus, parents and educators shopping on Amazon this school season will find the widest selection and low prices. According to a recent study by ecommerce analytics firm Profitero, Amazon offers the lowest prices on back-to-school products: 10% less on average than other retailers.
If you are an educator who needs help fulfilling your list, or if you know someone who does, share your Amazon Wish List on social media and tag @amazon with #ClearTheList. Follow along on our channels to learn more about our support of this initiative and teachers we’re featuring.
