My daughter just started her second year of teaching in Los Angeles. She is a special education teacher and her specialty is working with DHH (deaf and hard of hearing) children. She is a little older and wiser this year. As you can imagine, that first year of teaching was very challenging and each day needed to be planned anew.
Donated School Supplies from Classroom Direct Made This Teacher Happy!
This year, one of her goals is to not spend a small fortune out of pocket on school supplies. Her students mostly come from low- income families and my daughter never wants them to lack for anything. She may not want me to share this, but I think she spent about $4,500 last year on supplies, books, and classroom tools which worked out to about $400 a month from each paycheck.
She was thrilled when Classroom Direct offered to send me a backpack stuffed full of back-to-school supplies as a donation, and I was thrilled to be able to help provide for her students.

This year when you are giving teacher gifts, consider giving a gift card they can use to buy school supplies. Even if you can only give a few dollars, I know that would be appreciated. I know every school is different, but my daughter gets a very limited allowance to make photocopies each month so she spends a lot of money just on copy paper and printer ink.
Classroom Direct provided me with a backpack and supplies at no cost to facilitate this post. All opinions are 100% mine.
