Teaching Tools Resource Center
New for the 2023-24 school year:

Shopping for the 2023-24 School Year is by appointment.
Empowering teachers with the resources and support you need to be effective in the classroom is critical for student achievement.
At our Teaching Tools Resource Center, full-time instructional staff in Hillsborough County Public Schools (excluding non-Title I charter schools) can shop for free core school supplies and other resources. Our Teaching Tools Resource Center is managed and operated by Hillsborough Education Foundation and staffed by dedicated volunteers.
