    I have a scrapbooking program that allowed me to make my own. I think that you can buy a good scrapbooking for under $50.

    I used stationary paper (you know the kind with the cutesy border, etc). I put educational quotes that meant something to me on each one of my dividers. I imagaine, though, you could do something cuter like maybe put pics from your teaching,etc on on the divders. Oh I might do that. I have a ton of pics from ST but my only year of teaching.

    The only thing holding me back from doing more with the port is that (darn if I don't feel like Debbie Downer lately), most P's don't even look at the portfolio. out of probably 50 interviews I've been on over the last couple of years, I have never been asked for it. I open it when it is appropriate to show something but never asked. In fact, what I do is create a mini port to had out at interviews so they will look at what I can do.

    This is exactly why my portfolio if woefully out of date. During student teaching they told us principals never look at it so there was no point in keeping one past when it was graded during out Block classes.

    I just used the sheets that are provided in MS Word under Projects...they have a variety of styles, most are professional-looking, and you can customize with text. I wouldn't spend money on anything, b/c I agree, many committees do not even look at these.

    I just used stationary paper I found. I was told not to use cute paper, but to keep it professional. I also put a piece of cardstock in page protectors behind the page for the dividers.

    Google images ... find something you like, then size it to fit the page.
