Hi everyone! I was just hired as a first grade teacher! This will be my first year teaching. I am soooooooooo excited but soooo overwhelmed!!!!!! First question: Where do I begin??? Second question: How do I pay for everything for the classroom? Am I expected to pay for everything? Am I entitled to money to purchase things for the classroom? No one ever told me what to do. I am going to call the principal tomorrow to ask, but I was just wondering what everyone else thinks.
