I was a teacher for 8 years and during that time I spent thousands of dollars of my own money to buy supplies for my classroom. You might think this only happens at underprivileged schools, but I spent lots of my own money when I taught at ritzy private schools as well. The fact is, no matter the school, there is rarely money in the budget to get all the school supplies that teachers feel they need to give their students the best learning experience. That is why my favorite Back to School Teacher Gifts included school supplies for my classroom. I am excited to be sharing 10 Back to School Teacher Gifts Teachers Really Need to help get the school year off to a great start!
