Education can be a frightening word, particularly when it's listed under "cause of death" and followed by three exclamation marks. Overcome your fear of knowledge with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of educational materials at Teacher Parent Connection, located near Saguaro Vista Shopping Center.
Locally owned and operated since 1989, Teacher Parent Connection lines its shelves with more than 10,000 products for teachers, parents, and students alike.
