Sheila and Lisa, this is a recommendation for improving teaching technique, not a site to cite grievances. As a pre-service teacher, I used $200 of my financial aid money to help out in a classroom where I intern. Instead of complaining about your government pay, you could do what small business people do, be creative to make money. I know it cuts into your regimented 40 hours, but you can solve your problems by using your skill as an educator to make money outside of the classroom. In regard to spending $1000 out of pocket, I spent money for my internship class because I saw need. Your class may benefit from inviting parents to volunteer because they too may see needs for your classroom and donate to the cause.
