It's that time of year again: back-to-school days. Parents and kids are shopping for school supplies, lunch boxes, and backpacks, and little pre-school tots are excited to join their older siblings on that big first day.
But did you know that school teachers regularly set up their classrooms on their own dime?
According to a US Department of Education report posted earlier this year, 94% of teachers spend an average of $479 for school supplies—without reimbursement.
Teachers don't make a lot of money, so this money comes from the heart. According to the latest records from the US Department of Education (2012-2013), the average teacher salary is $56,383.
