Welcome back to another school year! This Back to School FREEBIE list is comprised of 12 supplies that will save teachers' sanity during the school year. Three of the Items included are:
1. Hand cleanser (extra-large). Classrooms are Free-Range Germ Zones.
3. Antiseptic cleaning spray. This is a must in Germ Warfare Defense to use with students who sneeze or cough on their homework/ tests and then try to hand in the tainted papers. When they do, smile, hand them the bottle and tell them to go into the hall and de-germ those weapons of mass congestion. This is also a necessity for desk cleaning and purifying the air. and
10. Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate. Just like burgers need fries and eggs need bacon, grading that stack of essays calls for the fruit of the cocoa bean…in any form.
Decades ago, my college Education professors armed me with lesson planning and teaching techniques that served me admirably, but they failed to mention the saving graces of a coffee/tea maker and a radio/CD player. And chocolate….lots of chocolate. My Teacher CLASSMART List saved my sanity and my sick days over and over again. Since I taught adolescents, it is geared to my close encounters with hormonal types, but is a prerequisite for teachers of all ages.
Fill your supply closet with these items, and enjoy a year that is as germ-free, stress-free and headache-free as possible.
