    I've always thought it would be interesting to somehow publish how much of a teacher's personal income is spent on their students. I think the public would be shocked!

    Our school gives each teacher an open PO for Office Depot in the amount of $250 each year. This is a "use it or lose it" PO. It will not carry over into the next year. My start up order alone has already used about $150! :( We have to buy all our own copy paper, student paper, pencils, etc.

    Like you, I spend about $1000.00 a year on my classroom. I try not to keep track so that I don't feel guilty. I save my receipts, and only add them at tax time!;)
