It's back-to-school time for Sun Devil teachers across the globe, and that means it's time to sign up for this year's Teacher Packs, put together by the ASU Alumni Association. 

K–12 educators can show off their ASU spirit and inspire their students with a complimentary pack brimming with Sparky-themed goodies, gold-and-maroon supplies and ASU keepsakes.

“The ASU Alumni Association and its university partners want to thank our alumni educators who share ASU's mission to educate the next generation of community leaders,” said Christine K. Wilkinson, president and CEO of the association. “As educators begin to prepare for a new year, we want to provide materials and resources that allow them to show their Sun Devil pride and inspire their students.” 

Through Friday, Sept. 9, ASU teacher alumni can visit to sign up to receive the goodies.  

Items includes an “I am a Sun Devil Teacher” sign, paperclips shaped like Sparky, a cactus and the Sun Devil pitchfork hand sign, a “#42 ASU” dog tag, ASU Alumni zipper pull, a sticker, a paper megaphone and more. 

Teachers who post a selfie with the hashtag #sundevilteacher will be entered into a drawing for more ASU-themed swag.  

This is the fifth year in a row that the Alumni Association has offered the pack to ASU-educated teachers around the world, and the popular program is growing.

Last year, the association sent out more than 3,900 Teacher Packs to kindergarten through high school teachers in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and eight countries.

This year, the association expects to top that by distributing 4,000 packs, which were recently packed by volunteers at the Alumni Association.
