CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter says she is pleased that her efforts to give teachers modest recognition for their financial sacrifices are paying off.

Shea-Porter introduced a resolution last year to reimburse teachers for school supplies they purchase. She says the House voted last week to extend a tax deduction for such classroom expenses.

Shea-Porter, a Democrat who was defeated by Republican Frank Guinta last month, says she was inspired by a letter she received from an educator in Derry. She says teachers should get back some of the money they spend creating welcoming and engaging classroom environments.
