School will be starting before we know it! And we all know those first year teachers who will be starting their classrooms. I remember my first year. I can't believe it, but I spent well over $900 to start up that classroom! I have pictures of my sparsely decorated classroom...at least it was sparsely decorated compared to how my classroom looks now 13 years later. It was a year to remember. Those students are now grown up! If you know a first year teacher, here is a list of gift ideas to get them started.
