Judy-I spend money throughout the year, but probably mostly at the beginning
for my classroom and the end when I'm running out of stuff. I used to spend
in the neighborhood of $1000/year, but I have been trying to cut back on
that. I still spend a lot on books and things like yarn, scissors, etc. when
I find a deal. The govt. as you know, is allowing an automatic deduction of
$250 on teachers' taxes. Hope this helps. Linda

Hi All, We have been having an internal discussion regarding the monies that
art educators spend on their classroom. I know that most of you do spend
some of your own dollars on your classroom needs. Can you tell me as a
general statement, at what time of the year do you do that? Is it usually
at the beginning of the school year, the end of the school year, the middle
of the school year or all year around? What is the approximate amount
spent? If you can offer some help, please respond to me at
Thanks a bunch!
