FREE Ultimate Teacher Supply List

Every summer the student supply lists are mailed out and placed in those little boxes in the school supply aisle at Target - but what about the teachers? You probably know the basic supplies you'll need, but there are always things I wish I had at school to keep things running smoothly and especially for the "uh-oh" moments that are bound to happen.  
I brainstormed with some other teachers and we compiled a master list of all the helpful things we keep in our desks, closets, and cars. Note: these are not student supplies - these are things for the teacher!

Here are some of the things we came up with:

  • Toothpaste

Now this is A LOT to remember - Thus, this Ultimate Teacher Supply Check-list was born! You can download this check-list for FREE here:
I've included a blank column for you to write in other personalized things you'll need. Have a great idea that's missing from this checklist? E-mail me and let me know!

I hope this checklist proves helpful as you're planning for a new school year. 
Remember: If you have it, you'll probably never need it. But if you don't - you'll definitely need it! 

Finding JOY in the JOURNEY of teaching,
