Sorry to keep bugging you guys. I don't know of any better HONEST resource. I received a wish list and was wondering which bulk pencils you would prefer to have. I overheard a teacher saying that she'd prefer to just buy them herself since they would just get the cheapest *** anyway. I am sure she would crawl under a rock if she knew I heard . I am looking at bulk cases of Ticonderoga, I Scholar or Mirado. I also considered simply ordering the bulk ones from Oriental Trading Co. with each individual Teachers name printed on them to maybe help keep them IN their class supply? Which would you prefer if given the option?
