About Us

Thank you so much for choosing to support our family-owned small business. Our goal at The Teachers' Lounge is simple - we strive to be the best educational resource for our local schools, teachers, parents and students. We pride ourselves on providing exceptional customer service and the best product selection for today's classrooms.

We are truly passionate about education and continually work to support our schools and teachers in many different ways:

  • We hand-select each and every item in our store. My teaching background allows me to choose products that teachers need in their classrooms.
  • We strive to keep our prices as low as possible because we realize that school budgets are limited, and teachers are spending money for their classrooms out of their own pockets. We believe that our customers deserve the best value.
  • We have chosen to give back to teachers from day one through The Lounge-Lizard Club™ and are proud to report that we have now given over $200,000 to the teachers in our area (check out the counter at the top of the page which is updated daily!).
  • We continue to develop meaningful, low-cost professional development workshops for teachers that are worthy of their time.
  • We enjoy providing teachers with new ideas for their classrooms through our in-store displays, website, and Facebook content.
  • We are up-to-date on the latest educational trends including differentiated instruction and State Standards.

We are so thankful to all of our customers and look forward to working with you for years to come. We hope to see you soon at our location in Ronnies Plaza!
