When I was an elementary school teacher I compiled a collection of wall posters that since I haven't taught in years, I no longer need; I simply cannot throw them away.  I was wondering if any teachers on this forum have any ideas of what to do with them.  I thought about giving them to a local school for their new teachers or maybe I could give them as freebies with book orders, but I think the postage would be too high and I certainly could not use MM.  I tried to sell them at a garage sale but no one was interested.  These are nice, mostly laminated posters that I bought at teacher supply stores.  A few I made myself and I think a couple were pullouts from teacher magazines.  Any suggestions, anyone? 

Thanks!

I'd suggest going with your thought of donating them to a local school.  I know anything that goes on our teacher's room table is claimed by someone who can use it!!!!!
