“Gift a Teacher” – Open to TEACHERS ONLY!
Xacto TeacherPro Pencil Sharpener
One thing that teachers are always in need of- no matter what grade they teach- is a good quality pencil sharpener. Teachers go through a ridiculous amount of money every year buying pencil sharpeners that they hope will last.
My husband (an elementary school teacher) took his Xacto Teacher Pro Pencil Sharpener to his classroom as well as testing it out at home. This product proved to be very different than any other pencil sharpener that he has bought in the past. Usually he spends about $30 for an electric pencil sharpener, and they break so quickly that he refuses to let his students use it for fear that it will break even quicker. Every year he ends up buying one or two pencil sharpeners because they just do not last through his classroom usage.
The Xacto TeacherPro showed up every other pencil sharpener he has ever owned. He will actually let his students sharpen their pencils with his sharpener now! It’s really quite impressive! When you place the pencil into the sharpener- it automatically shuts off when the pencil is sharpened! NO more over-sharpened pencils and burnt out motors! Additionally, the pencils that are sharpened by Xacto TeacherPro are not so pointy that they hurt to touch and break immediately! They are sharpened to a dull point- similar to a ballpoint pen- but not so dull that you can’t use them. Xacto has truly found the perfect sharpness for your pencil! So not only is your pencil not so sharp and fragile that it breaks immediately (or you’re worried about your kids jabbing each other with it!), but since the pencil sharpener automatically shuts off you also do not overuse the motor which lengthens the life of your pencil sharpener.
Another really great feature of Xacto’s Teacher Pro Pencil Sharpener is that the storage bin for the pencil shavings is quite large! No more dumping the pencil shavings out every time you sharpen 3 or 4 pencils. My husband was able to sharpen a large box of pencils without needing to empty its contents!
I (and my husband!) highly recommend the Xacto TeacherPro Electric Pencil Sharpener for ANY teacher! It is the luxury of pencil sharpeners. Large shavings bins, automatic motors shut off, and perfect sharpness to your pencils. No more worrying about students over-using your sharpener, emptying your shavings bin several times a day, and spending tons of money every year replacing your sharpeners!
You can buy this product at any major office supply store (Staples, Office Depot, etc.), on Amazon, and at Walmart.
