When I saw the Linky Party on The Inspired Apple I knew I had to post. One of my favorite things is my teacher bag...well all bags. Bags and shoes. Do I need them? No. Do I buy anyway, of course. Beach bags, backpacks, if it holds something, gotta have it. But I must say I haven't shopped for a new teacher bag for a couple of years. An intern walked into our school with the ultimate teacher bag..a Dooney and Bourke Handprint Tote (discontinued of course). I searched and searched ebay to find it. Found it , but could not bring myself to spend the money. Then my sweet, wonderful husband surprises me with it on Mother's Day. It's durable, cleans up well and did I mention huge.
I finally cleaned it out so the items you see are the least I ever carry. Usually a plan book and teacher's manual(s) are always inside, as well as lunch containers and an empty coffee thermos at the end of the day. But these items are a must, sunglasses (for Florida recess), jump drives...yes there are 3 (8GB)'s, Diet Dr. Pepper, pencil bag filled with pens and highlighters, boxtops (need to leave those at school), camera for documentating those exciting teaching moments, Epic Phone, Kashi bar (afternoon pick me up since we have the second lunch of the day (10:43), JoAnns flier, kleenex, hanitizer (as my firsties call it), and the tennis-elbow band (spend way to much time on the computer. Can't wait to see what everyone else carries!
