Back to School!! Oh wow, this is happening for me this week! I really don’t know where my summer went…well, maybe I do: summer school, Vegas, trip to Colorado. And boom! Suddenly summer is done. Gone. Time for school!
Along with school starting up, it’s time to be sure I have everything in my room ready for the new year. Part of that is having a Teacher Survival Kit supplied and tucked away for those times I might need it.
Here is my kit. I want items in it that I might need in a pinch. Or just something that might make my day go a bit easier!
Do you keep some kind of snack in your room? I do like to keep a few things in my room that won’t spoil for those days I rushed out of the house and forgot my lunch. Or I am just needing an extra bit of something to eat to get me through the day. Granola bars or snack crackers are small and fit easily into a container. Aspirin (Excedrin for me) is a must to keep in your kit for those days your head feels like it could explode and the bottle you keep in your purse has mysteriously turned up empty! Allergy & sinus medicine is another good thing to keep on hand. Here are a few other things worth keeping in your kit:
* Chap Stick
* hand lotion
* mints (especially if you have eaten onions with lunch and you have been
called into an unexpected meeting)
* safety pins & needle and thread for wardrobe malfunctions
* nail clippers and nail file
* spare pair of earrings ( I hate figuring out after I have gotten to school that
I forgot to put earrings on!)
What about tools? Do you keep a took kit at school? I don’t keep much at school but there are times I need a few things so I can just handle the job myself rather than having to ask for maintenance to handle it. My most used tools would be screwdrivers and the razor to scrape hot glue off of walls.
I, of course, keep a brush and some hairspray at school too. They just don’t fit in this container. What do you keep at school to help you through those days when things aren’t going according to plan and you need a little extra help?
