The East Bay Depot was created by and for teachers.

“As a new teacher this place is incredible… I would recommend this to any teacher or crafty person as the place to start.
-Depot customer on Yelp.com

With recent cutbacks to state-funded educational programs teachers aren’t getting the funding they need. Many teachers are responsible for buying their own supplies for their students and their classroom. The Depot is here to help.

The Teacher Resource Zone has been created in the Depot store by a grant from the Altamont Education Advisory Board. In Teacher Resource Zone educators will find:

  • Lesson plans and samples of creative projects
  • Free Lit Guides
  • Teacher’s Email Llist to be notified when new educational inventory arrives
  • Information about upcoming workshops for educators

The East Bay Depot carries a wide variety of items just for teachers in our Educational Area. We make a special effort to offer these items at as low a cost as possible. Whatever subject you teach, the Depot has got your back. A sample of teachers items we have include:

  • Teacher’s Editions
  • Workbooks
  • Language Study Books
  • Books about Education
  • Children’s Books
  • Classroom Decorations
  • Maps and Educational Posters
  • Educational Toys and Games
  • Chalkboards, Dry-Erase Boards, Corkboards

In addition, we have paper, binders, staplers, pencils & pens, file folders, sheet protectors, art supplies, and so much more.

Invitation to Teachers: Focus Group September 16

As the new school year begins, we would like to get your feedback on how the Depot can better meet the needs of teachers.

We are hosting an evening focus group to get your input on what materials you would like to see at the Depot, how we can help you weave re-use and environmental awareness activities into the classroom, and also to share our plan for an exciting new Green Educator Program that we will launch this Fall.

There will be a free and delicious light dinner, and a raffle. So please come, and help us to better serve you!  The details:

What: Teachers’ Focus Group
When: Wednesday, September 16, 5:30-7:30pm
