Re: [teacherartexchange] New teacher here!

Absolutely, Woody...excellent advice! I just finished cleaning out my
classrooms at school...and I was amazed at how much extra stuff I had

I always wrote grants each year to get extra supplies. I went from about
about a $2,500 budget for supplies when I first moved to this school...down
to $600/ year...but I was prepared....and I'm leaving the next teacher well

But, hey...we don't have to tell the administrators about this! ...or
they'd cut us back more!

And, BTW...all of you have shared such GREAT ideas for this new teacher!
