My best friend is going to be a teacher! That means I got hard to work making her a First Year Teacher Survival Kit!
I am so happy and excited for my best friend
She got her first teaching job. Believe me when I say she got it in record time too! Why? Because she is awesome. She has been working at Disney World for a while now and even though she loves it, she also loved the thought of teaching. I am not even exaggerating when I say she researched jobs, interviewed, and got the job in a week. Crazy right?! Now, when it comes to teaching, we are almost on completely different ends of the spectrum. I teach Kinder and she teaches 10th grade World History. Ya’ll I don’t know how she can do it, but she loves History! I’d much rather stick with my little ones. Anyway, since she was planning on moving into a house I was going to send her a care package with fun things for her room because she wanted to redo her whole theme. Well when she got this job, I just had to change that idea. Instead, I made her a 1st Year Teacher’s Survival Kit.
In it I had:
- Coffee (who doesn’t need more caffeine when they teach?!)
- A World History chart
- Sticky notes
- Post it tabs
- To do lists
- Notebooks (I seriously use like 10 a year)
- Clipboard (similar)
- Pen/Pencil Holder (similar)
- Vitamin C and Germ-X (yeah, you KNOW you have been knocked down on your booty by those mutant child germs)
- A teacher’s planner (similar)
- Candle and room spray (I know it isn’t teacher related but GOSH they relax me after a long, long day)
- A fun framed quote
I want to hear from you! Is there anything YOU can’t live without during the school year or any advice for Kathleen?! Also, if you would like to follow her little journey, you can find her blog here. GOOD LUCK KATHLEEN
