**To my wonderful readers- according to a 2010 study, teachers spent an average of $398 out of their own pocket on supplies for the classroom. Many parents and parent organizations are already trying to offset this, but if you can donate supplies or remember the teacher with a gift card for supplies, I am sure it would really be appreciated!
