Back-to-School Must Haves (for the teacher)

It’s hard to believe that the beginning of the school year will be upon us soon.  I am here today to share some must haves for you, the teacher!  These are not must-haves to make your classroom run smoothly, but they are must-haves to make you feel or look good as a teacher!

1. Keurig Coffee Maker

Let’s be honest.  How can one not survive the day surrounded by littles with a little caffeine?  If you can, kudos to you.  I can not.  My neighbor has a Keurig coffee maker in her classroom and I think I may break down this year and get my own.   Walking next door can be such a journey.

2. Klean Kanteens

I drink a lot of water and coffee throughout the day.  I must have a good bottle to keep my water cold and my coffee hot!  My favorite is the insulated bottle from Klean Kanteen.  I have one for water and one for coffee.  If I have ice in there and forget about it, the ice is still in there the next day!  My stuff stays cold when it needs to be cold and hot when I want it to be hot.  They come in lots of fun colors too.

3. Teacher Tote Bag

You must have a cute teacher bag to bring to school!  You will notice that my favorite is not too large.  It’s big enough to fit a laptop in, but not too much “take-home” work.  There is a reason for this!  I believe when we leave, we should go home to have time to ourselves and our families.  I try really hard not to bring things home on the weeknights.  On Fridays, I may bring a thing or two home, but I really try not to.  This bag works perfect and its stylish!  The Jack&Chris Leather Tote Bag is my favorite.

4. Comfy Flats

If you are a teacher, you know there is no way our feet can survive a day in cheap, uncomfortable shoes!  Finding cute, comfortable shoes can be very expensive.  I have found a pair that I love and they are reasonably priced.   They are the Lucky Brand Emmie Ballet Flats.  They come in all sorts of colors and fun patterns.  I think I have four pairs now, and I want to get a new pair before the new school year starts!

5. Lightweight Cardigan

So I don’t know how things work at every school, but mine works this way.  I have a college degree, but I cannot control the temperature in my own classroom.  Nope.  Not allowed.  So,  I have learned to have a sweater on hand for when I am freezing and I cannot turn off the air.  I have found the best cardigan from Splendid.  It’s called the Splendid Grandpa Cardigan.  It’s kind of a silly name.  I am not a grandpa, but I love it!  I bought mine at a local boutique, but I found the same one on Amazon.  Do you want to know why I love it so much?  It has pockets!  I can throw it on and have my phone in there…Splendid!
