There is a workshop this weekend that I really wanted to go to. My district told me that we're only supposed to ask for money once, so I paid for it myself. Two years ago, I had some extra classroom money at the end of the year, and my P said I could use that for a workshop I wanted to attend. Now, there is a conference in a few months that a bunch of us would like to go to. It addresses some specific needs that we've been wanting to discuss as a staff. I just don't feel like I can spend another couple hundred $$ out of pocket when I already paid for another workshop this year. I'd also love to really pursue my masters, but with the teensy raise it wouldn't be financially smart. So I only take classes when I get them free for having a student teacher. So, I guess my question is, how much are you willing to pay out of pocket for PD?
