Do u have any tips on starting? like supplies you'll need, etc.
3 hole punch has come in handy.
A grade scale (available at dollar stores sometimes) is helpful, too if you are going to be doing grades. (usually at least upper elementary.)
A top notch electric pencil sharpener. We bought an old brother from the thrift store for $3.00, and it has been the BEST possible investment.
Organization for scissors, tape, glue, pencils, markers, crayons, and water paints... lots and lots of paper, too! Different kinds... writing, drawing, construction, craft, tissue, grid, tracing... In our home, we use it all.
If you see yourself doing lots of projects a crafts, a space for drying things is very helpful... either a drying rack, or just a long table out of the way.
Pantry or some other place for organizing, storing, and hiding all the books and stuff you will accumulate.
My kids also want me to add... bean bag chairs or other comfortable seating that you can move everywhere you go in or out of the house.
Book shelves and special bins or shelves for library books, too.
lots of art stuff, paints, pencils, erasers, colored pencils, crayons, pastels, tempra paint, brushes, large rolls of paper, scissors, glue, construction paper,
globe, books shelves, file cabinet, microscope, pencil sharpener
pens, pencils, erasers, paper to write on, notebooks,
book of maps, dictionary, tarsus(sp),
stock up on school supplies when they are on sale.....a lot of things (file cabinets, stuff like that) can be gotten from freecyle.org

For what grade
Pencils, erasers, pencil sharpeners, get a globe for social studies/geography, those clear plastic bins and some type of shelving where you can organize everything, highlighters, obviously workbooks/textbooks (in other words curriculum), notebooks, printer paper, computer, printer, pens, ruler, scissors, glue, dictionary, perhaps a binder with the three hole punch thing for keeping track of each child's work, folders for each subject, some type of grading scale, you can even get a prehistoric globe if you're teaching ancient history, internet connection for watching educational youtube videos or research, tables and chairs or desks if you are making a homeschool classroom, teacher desk, chalk board with chalk to write on (again if you plan on doing a classroom).
A good map!
