It’s one of my favorite link-ups hosted by one of my favorite persons-Erin from Perfectly Port! The 10 on the 10th. This month we are talking about 10 Back to School Must Haves. I cannot wait to see what everyone’s lists. As a teacher, school is a large part of my heart and also back to school is kind of like my Superbowl. I love it! Yesterday I shared how my family Getts Geared Up for School. Today I thought I would share how the teacher gets geared up for back to school. Here we go…
Colorful flair pens, sharpies, Ticondaroga pencils, and PaperMate Gel pens are a must.
A great lesson planner is also another must. I have used an Erin Condren for four years now, this is my fifth planner Teacher Planner from them and I don’t see that changing anytime soon.
A first day of school outfit. I always turn to Pintrest for cute outfit inspiration for teaching outfits. I do think the way teachers dress is important, and I always want to look professional, yet have an outfit that allows for me to do my job (sit on the carpet, tie shoes, paint, glue).
A yummy lunch in a cute bag or box.
I like making mason jar salads.
And outlet to unwind. I like to come home and workout. Sometimes the last thing I want to do after school is move…off of the couch but this year I am going to start strong.
A teacher bestie (and my everyday bestie)…But also additional support from positive, like-minded, energetic teachers…these people are my lifeline! These people are my tribe!
A cute mug full of caffeine.
A cute bag to haul things to and from school with. A former student gifted me a 31 Bag and I LOVE it.
A sense of humor because in what other job do we get to say things like…
Or have things like this cross your desk…
It is seriously the best job, but you can’t take all the little things too seriously!
And MOST importantly we need students and families!
If you are a teacher, I hope you have a great start to your school year. If you are a parent, I hope your kiddo(s) have a wonderful school year.
