That's why Toyota is running a special geared specifically for teachers. Toyota will waive the first lease payment for a teacher (up to $500) and award a $250 gift certificate to www.teachercreated.com, an online teacher supply store.
Toyota said in an official statement:
"Most teachers do not receive paychecks in the summer, and often delay major purchases, even though they have some free time before school starts. During this time however, many will have to come out of their own pocket for school supplies for their classroom. The "Toyota Loves Teachers" program solves both of the issues"
This program is effective September 5, 2012 through October 1, 2012.
