Educator Expenses     http://www.irs.gov/taxtopics/tc458.html
If you were an eligible educator in 2014, you can deduct up to $250 of qualified expenses you paid in 2014 as an adjustment to gross income on Form 1040, line 23, rather than as a miscellaneous itemized deduction. If you file Form 1040A, you can deduct these expenses on line 16. If you and your spouse are filing jointly and both of you were eligible educators, the maximum deduction is $500. However, neither spouse can deduct more than $250 of his or her qualified expenses.
