My first visit to the Chicago Teacher Store was a very positive one. I had previously been to The Learning Tree and was unable to find what I needed for my students, but I found everything I needed at the CTS. They have very clearly organized sections - math, science, art (which they have a great deal of elementary-level art supplies, which is hard to find downtown) - and they have an extensive supply of teacher's resources. Their book selection (resource books for teaching versus trade books) is large and they have lots of classroom decorations as well. I've seen better teacher stores in the suburbs, but I liked this one far better than The Learning Tree.
