It is nice to see people with the same drive and passion for education that I have." Rising Educator Conference attendee

What is ISTA ReSupply? 

Experienced educators know it took years to build their classroom supplies from bulletin board materials to the basics. Early career educators start from scratch. 

ISTA ReSupply accepts donated classroom supplies from retiring educators or community members wishing to give a boost to new educators. Those newest to the profession then get to shop at various ISTA conferences and events for classroom supplies they need. 

Thank you for the ReSupply donations for the Rising Educator Conference!
