Home Away From Home
SCARCE is my "home away from home."  Every time I come here I load up the car with fabulous text books, workbooks, supplies and library books for my classroom.  Practically all of the books in my classroom library are from SCARCE.  I've brought other teachers from my school and they are amazed at all the books and supplies.  It's all free!!  It's an hour away from my home but worth the trip every time.  Thanks for everything!"
