School Teacher's Query

I am a private school teacher with book, curriculum and software ideas.  I was not happy with the privacy agreement they wanted me to sign.  They want an agreement that says I won't talk about my students to anyone outside the school, or use their trademarked terms for my own use.  They agreed to allow my own ideas be my own intellectual property and told me to find a document that I would agree to sign.  What are usually the rights of school teachers vs. school systems?  Where can I get an inexpensive yet comprehensive document that will protect me as a creative being?
 
Thanks!

I would venture to guess that you're not a teacher of English.  I have no idea from your post who "they" are.  Without knowing that, it's impossible to answer your question.

Ha!  Edited that out.  I teach 5 year olds.  It is a private school run by a board of trustees.

Ok, I'm still not clear on who's insisting you do what.  The Board of Trustees is insisting you not use your materials?  They're allowing you to use your materials but not allowing you to discuss it with "outsiders"?

JS:
 
According to some standards, your question mark should be placed within your quotations marks.
 
Your: "outsiders"?
Should be: "outsiders?"
... according to some standards ...
 
Furthermore, you've posted two items that do not appear to be English sentences.
 
You posted:
The Board of Trustees is insisting you not use your materials?  
They're allowing you to use your materials but not allowing you to discuss it with "outsiders"?
 
These items appear to be assertions improperly followed by question marks.    
 
Might I venture to guess that YOU are not a teacher of English?
 
If you live in a glass house, you shouldn't be quick to throw stones.
