Last week, I did an article on -in class teacher accounts-. The teacher’s account is based on parent contributions. I had the pleasure of working at one school in which the PTO organized teacher accounts to lighten the load of teachers spending so much of their own money on classroom supplies. Teacher’s spend many hours planning lessons. Teachers are expected to teach both creative and exciting lessons, on a shoe-string budget.
Teachers spend many hours on http://www.Pinterest.com. With each of these great ideas, also comes with the need to purchase supplies. Speaking of supplies, I thought I would list a few of my favorite things.
I am sure every teacher has her own favorite things list. These are the things I love.
Most every teacher needs construction paper for one reason or the other. More construction paper would be useful the younger the grade level being taught.
Some teachers prefer the old school liquid glue. I personally prefer a combination of glue sticks and the more traditional liquid white glue.
Paper Mate offers the perfect cross between marker and pen. I truly love these. I usually carry one in my purse. On a teacher’s salary these pens are very much a treat. One former co-worker and I would both buy a pack. We would trade favorite colors. That way we both had two of our favorite color pen. This is probably a favorite of my favorites.
A cute pair of scissors can really help a day in the life of an educator. Make sure the scissors match the personality.
I was not paid to endorse these products. I just wanted to share my favorite things. In hope that this post will encourage a better teacher-parent relationship,
I encourage celebrating teachers everyday. Keep these things in mind, if you’d like to purchase a thank you gift. The gift giving season is upon us don’t forget your child’s teacher. #ISupptTeachers
