I would try asking for a discount at any location that sells teaching supplies or books.  Please let us know if you give it a try and it works!

Advice from a homeschooling mom:  "In my experience, it is best to ask FIRST if they offer an educator discount.  If they say "yes", then find out what sort of proof they require.  If it is something hard for homeschoolers to supply (like a pay stub or a union card) THEN say "I'm a homeschool teacher," and find out what is necessary to prove it.  If you start off asking for a homeschool discount you may be told there isn't any."
