Depending on where you are in Wisconsin, most of south eastern wisconsin goodwills sell books for $1-3. I’ve been able to grow my collection over 3 years

My classroom library is a combination of books I own and the Scholastic books they distribute to the teachers.

I have a pretty big collection of books, but I've been collecting for over twenty years. Profits from Scholastic book fairs have helped with the newest books. Ollie's is another good place to get books.

I am slowly getting mine built. I have a scholastic account and order flyers for my students. I always have kids who order books and every order earns points. I then use my points to buy books.

I wrote for a grant for some, many i have bought out of pocket, i have asked for donations etc.

I use group sets with the class. What I have are older but the students enjoy reading. I have a small diverse library that I use on occasion but not on a regular basis.

Thriftbooks.com and Goodwill! I also wrote several grants to build my classroom library. Also if you are near a Scholastic warehouse, they always have sales throughout the year. I have over 500 books on my classroom shelves

Ok…I’m curious. I pretty much have to beg, barter and steal to get supplies for my classroom. Do teachers in states with legal cannabis have this problem? It’s my understanding that sales tax from its purchase goes to schools, or is that all smoke and mirrors…No pun intended. 😉

During the panny, my agency moved a handful of us to a different office with no choice. Basically said we’d be fired if we didn’t comply. When we asked if we would ever have to move to the new city, we were given no answers for months. Now, they’re saying back to office in September and I have a feeling they’ll be expecting us to move. Should I ask for money to move? I personally can’t afford to and told them from the start I can’t move. Also, I really don’t want to leave my S/O. Help!
