  •  My oldest niece is a teacher in California (4+ / 0-)

    At the beginning of the school year she asks her students to bring a roll of paper towels and a box of Kleenex; that's usually enough to last the entire school year (she locks them in her classroom's closet). Some kids will bring more to cover those who can't afford it (thank goodness for Costco).

    At least the school can still afford toilet paper, and custodians to keep things clean (she's told me the most important thing a new teacher can do is form a good relationship with the school custodians; you never know when you need an emergency cleanup and they move a lot faster when it's a teacher they like).

    There's only one rule that I know of, babies -- goddammit, you've got to be kind. -- Kurt Vonnegut
