I paid up front for 3 months and I was very disappointed. Every box seems to be filled with a couple of dollar store items. The 2nd box had nothing to do with teaching or the classroom at all. It was a box full of junk trinkets related to Breast Cancer Awareness. Teachers value every meager dollar that they earn. If I pay for a box for teachers, I want to feel like I am getting a value on things that I can use in my classroom. This just left me upset with myself for wasting money. I contacted the seller to see if I could get a refund on my balance after the first box was so disappointing, but that wasn't an option.
