Beginning this past weekend our tech team has been working diligently to install some much needed updates to our eStore. As with all things, unfortunately these changes have produced some “glitches” that we’ve been working equally as hard to correct and get the eStore back to full capacity.

We want to thank all our customers for your patience. We also wish to ask you a favor. If you come to the store and discover something is not working as it should, pop us an email to customerservice@dedicatedteacher.com and tell us exactly what you are experiencing and we will get to work on it right away!

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and once again, we appreciate your patience as we work through this process!
