    I too would love classroom materials

    I've made the mistake of keeping a candle (for the great aroma) on my desk that I don't burn. The kids seem to think that I like candles which I do from my favorite local candle store and in my favorite scents. I end up getting all kinds of candles for Christmas that I would never be able to use. Instead I would love to get classroom materials or books. A gift certificate to the local teacher store would be the ultimate gift. I had one parent this year that was friends with a teacher freind of mine. She told her about a math board that I wanted that cost $80.00. She ordered it for me around November and told me that was my present for the year. I was so very grateful. I was going to have to spend my own money for it. I still feel a little guilty about posting a wish list on my website. One thing that another school in my district did was that the PTA gave the kids a booklet with the whole staff listed in it. It included some things that they would like personally and a wish list for their classroom. I wish someone would do that for us. That way it takes the burden off of you. Someone mentioned about the book fair. Our PTA gave all the money that they had to buy books to the librarian for the library. I know that way it is there for everyone. I just like to have everything that I need to teach a lesson or use in my classroom at my fingertips. I don't want to run to the school lobrary every time I need a book.
