I was wondering how many teachers out there hide how much they spend (from a husband or other loved one)? At the beginning it wasn't a big deal. My husband knew I had to spend some money on my classroom. But now he just doesn't understand why I have to buy teaching resources and supplies for my students. Every time there is a sale and I buy stuff, I have to stash it in the downstairs storage until I can bring it to school. It's not about how much I am spending, it's the fact that I'm spending in general. He doesn't think I should be the person buying supplies for the students. He thinks that the school or the parents should buy it. The sad thing is, I agree with him! But, since my school doesn't provide all of the supplies, and we are not allowed to give parents a supply list, who is going to buy the stuff? Who else tries to hide the fact that they are out shopping for teacher related things?
