Teachers Spend $485 Of Their Own Money Every Year

The first year my sister worked as a teacher my entire family gained a better understanding of how much personal money teachers spend every year. Despite the fact that she’s been teaching for more than a decade, her personal finances still play a vital role in making sure that her classroom and her students have all the supplies needed.

According to Edudemic, teachers spend an average of $485 of their own money every year. I honestly think that that’s a low number based on what I’ve seen from my sister and her colleagues. Forbes has a great article detailing which expenses you can write off on your taxes. It’s a good one to bookmark and read later.
