I spent way more than $250 on educator expenses. Can I claim more than $250?

If you have qualified expenses that you can’t take using this deduction, don’t worry, you may be able to claim the rest as an itemized deduction. Keep in mind the amount is subject to the 2% limit on miscellaneous itemized deductions.

See IRS Publication: Topic No. 458 Educator Expense Deduction 
Or IRS Publication 529, Miscellaneous Deductions (search for “Educator expenses”)
