I recently discovered a site called First Book Marketplace. If you’re at a Title 1 school you can buy from them at extremely discounted rates.

yup!

thrift stores, book festivals and donorschoose

I like to hit up retiring teachers or those leaving the district. Also, when libraries clear out their old material you can usually get free or cheap used books.

Twice a year my library hosts a used book sale. I have a tremendous amount of gently used novels for fairly little out of pocket expense.

One of my Kinders refuses to go to the bathroom at school. I have a bathroom in my classroom and there is a bathroom at the playground. He will hold it until he wets his pants. I have tried everything that I know of to get him to use the bathroom. I’ve talked with my principal and the school counselors and have tried everything that they have come up with. Nothing is working. Mom and dad both say that this is the only place he does this at. He will go just fine outside of school. Suggestions?

Anyone have slow months where you burn through a lot of your allotted pro bono/professional development hours to keep hitting minimum daily hours? The past few weeks have been like this for me. Should I be concerned (I.e., will this reflect poorly on me, come review time? Will I have dug myself too much of a hole if I keep burning my non-billable hours?) I’ve been asking partners if I can assist in any projects so I can fill my plate, but I’ve only gotten small (4-6 hour) tasks handed my way.
