We are well into the “Back to School” season, and the days are getting longer. Students are back at the bus stop, parents are attending parent-teacher conferences, and teachers are stocking their classrooms with supplies that will help young minds grow. Teachers often find themselves digging into their own pockets to fill up their classrooms with diverse literature and engaging materials. Now more than ever, teachers are looking for ways to get the materials their students need but not break the bank.
Casey Wiggins, a former elementary school educator, was one of these teachers. She wanted the best materials for her students and had an eye for a great deal. Over time, Casey wanted to spread the word to fellow educators across the country on finding deals on websites like Amazon. Facebook seemed like the prominent place to create a group to share the deals she found on materials like pens, classroom furniture, or diverse books for classroom libraries.
The Facebook group immediately took off, and Teacher Deals by Casey was created. Casey’s following has continued to grow over the last few years and now reaches teachers not only in North Carolina but across the country. What started as an idea to share deals on items that teachers may need has grown into a thriving business. Casey strives to create a safe place for teachers to find products they need and help them save money. Some teachers have reached out to Casey to share that the space she has created is an outlet for them to shop and save money at the same time.
As Teacher Deals by Casey grew, Casey realized she would benefit from having her own office space. She is one of the newest tenants at Office Ours and has enjoyed having her own space at the brand new Garner location. Being a one-person company, she came into a turnkey office ready to get to work. Casey is glad to be out of her living room and in a clean, professional office space that allows her to build her business. She is excited to meet and potentially collaborate with other tenants and keep growing her business.
With the many pressures put on teachers to meet their student’s needs and provide the best learning environment, Casey knows there will always be a need for teacher deals. Casey is looking forward to what the next few years bring to her business and is excited to grow into her new office space.
