Back to School Must-Haves!

Today I'm joining some of my girlies for a back to school blog hop!


I'm sharing some of my favorite Back to School Must-Haves!  There are PLENTY more I'm sure, but I could only fit five into a nice and neat little graphic ;)


Clockwise from the top left…

A new set of colorful pens is a MUST for the start of a new year.  I happen to really like Ink Joy… the colors are vibrant and the ink flow is just right!

Your shoe choice can make or break your day-- a COMFY pair of shoes is a KEY ingredient for a happy teacher.  Tieks are my new shoe of choice.  They are a bit pricey, but they are well made, pretty, and comfortable!!

Each year I stock up on Wallflowers plug-ins from Bath & Body Works, both for my home AND classroom.  I tend to gravitate toward the fall scents… Pumpkin Apple is DELICIOUS!  I keep one plugged in at school, and everyone who comes to visit always compliments me on how yummy the room smells!

Our classrooms are basically like second homes, so it's important to make them a place we want to be!  I love to bring in FUN and COLOR wherever I can.  This year I'm adding some lantern string lights to my decor!

Germs run rampant in schools, so hand sanitizer is another necessity.  I stock up on the PocketBac sanitizers from Bath & Body Works.  I keep them everywhere: in my purse, in my lunch bag, on my key ring… Yes, I'm a germaphobe!  :)

Keep hopping along to see what other tips and tricks my friends have in store for you!

I would love to have something scented in my classroom, but we have people who are allergic. Great list though!

Stocking up on wall scents reminded me of what I used to do. I had a big collection of the sprays from Bath and Bath Works. I liked to have seasonal scents. I always sprayed a few puffs before the students came in the morning. One day I forgot and one of my students asked me why my class smelled boring. I thought that was such a cute way to put it. And of course, I completely agreed with him!!!

We technically aren't allowed to have Wallflowers but I always want to get them every year! Maybe I will this year! It will have to be on the D.L. for sure!!
