...I just discovered the other benefit of being a teacher!
I was at J. Crew last week, and as the sales clerk was ringing up my item, he asked me what school I go to.
"Oh, I'm not a college student. I'm actually a teacher."
"Did you know teachers get 15% off at J. Crew stores? We really like academics here."
"Really? Wow!" Then maybe I'll find a few more things...
If you're not a teacher and are considering going back to school, just for the two benefits (summers off + J. Crew discount), you might be interested in the fact that students get 10% off.
