As a teacher or educational professional, we commend you for your service in the classroom and educational system.
When you want to give students the best school experience, it's common for teachers to cover some expenses out of pocket. According to the 2021 Teacher Spending Survey by Adoptaclassroom.org, teachers spent an average of $750 on school supplies out of pocket during the 2020-2021 school year. That’s the highest amount ever recorded since the survey began in 2015. Nearly one-third (30%) of teachers spent at least $1,000 on school supplies.
