First of all, I'm curious on how the whole taking supplies with you when you leave thing works. I'm not teaching yet, but I know lots, if not most, teachers end up buying materials for their students to use. When you leave a school, do you have to prove to them that you purchased the items? If so, how do you do this? Also, this question is regarding the portfolio. I pretty much know what to put in it and how to organize it for the most part. I was wondering if anyone had any examples and/or pictures (preferably in the paper format, not an electronic one) of their portfolio or know where I could find some. What are your favorite stores for teachers supplies and books for teaching ideas? Did you have a favorite book that helped you when you were just starting? I know this is just a jumble of random questions, but I've had them on my mind for a bit and finally had the time to ask them! Thanks!
