I am not a teacher but my sister is and this is her first year. She is a second grade teacher at a very small and poor school district. She has to drive an hour one way to work every day. Since the district is poor that means most of her students come from very limited income families. I was really amazed when I learned how much of her own money (and she makes over $10,000 a year less than my SIL who works in Kingwood, right out of Houston) she was spending on items for her classroom. Things such as paper towels, tissues, and hand santizer, not to mention art supplies and such for the kids. My point being, even a gift card from Walmart or Target would go a long way for her. I would think the same would be true for most teachers.
