Teacher’s back to school guide

I decided to take a wander around my local shopping centre today to finally get my hair cut (haven’t had one in just under a year… My hair has gone mad). I ironically didn’t even get a haircut today, but an appointment has been made! Progress!

In the meantime, whilst meandering around the mostly high-end fashion shops wishing for a time where I have solid income, I noticed a common theme… Back to school branded everything! Although, these displays seem to cover only half of the market…

SO MUCH BACK TO SCHOOL!!

They all target the kids!! Now as much as its the kids that are going back to school, and its the kids that will be bugging their parents to buy them all this useless amazing stationary, teachers are going through this too!

I think it’s about time teacher’s had a back to school spree! Here’s my advice for this…

  1. Pens!

You can find them anywhere and everywhere! Here is a special display just for pens to demonstrate their importance…

2.  Paper

I finally bought some new printer paper!! No more excuses now! Although you’ll obviously need masses of notebooks as well as printer paper.

3.   Oodles of unnecessary stationary

You’ll need a rubber in the shape of a penguin one day right?

4.  Some professional looking clothes

5.  Motivation

In the form of constantly hot coffee (flask), the promise of food (microwavable container) and a reflective daily journal so you can keep a record of your failures mistakes and lucky days successes!

6.  Some kind of stress relief

Because whether it be alcohol, playing video-games, reading a good book or chilling on the balcony (or all four for me!) we all need something to help us wind down and forget about that bad day week month term.

If you have all of this along with a passion for educating and content knowledge yada yada yada… Then I reckon you’ll do just fine!

As long as you don’t run out of coffee of course…
