What the Teacher is Thankful for

5:00 AM Sarah Koves 0 Comments

It is November.  This means I am in the depths of first semester, which can be a struggle some days.  I am so glad that Cents of Style has provided me an opportunity to reflect on what I am thankful for in my classroom. Even when I arrive at school in the dark, and the students are struggling, I have a few items the teacher in me is thankful for.  

 I received a complimentary shirt for this post; these words and opinions here are 100% mine!

Here are five things that I am thankful for in my classroom and profession.  They might seem simple to the outsider, but teachers know the value of these types of items as they work to survive DEVOLSON.  Also, be sure to check out the great deal on the perfect shirt I have for this season.

Great Pens

I believe that a teacher's choice of writing implements is very important and makes our work much more pleasant.  I prefer grading essays with purple or orange instead of black...the colors make grading a more pleasant experience, which is awesome for me and better for my students.

Comfy Shoes

Oh the shoe conundrum for teachers.  Teachers spend a good part of the day on their feet and need quality socks and shoes to prevent aches, pains, and damage to their feet and legs. I have some new favorites and old standbys.  When my feet don't hurt at the end of the day, I consider that a win.

Perfect Bag

A teacher's bag like her pens and shoes defines her and supports her superhero task.  I have had many teacher bags over the years.  However, I now have one favorite; I own three of them in different patterns. I know that it helps keep me organized and functioning during this crazy time.

I have never been the best speller, and, yes, I do teach high school English.  I embrace and share this weakness with my students; call it humanizing myself or building relationships, but I am living example that your weaknesses don't define you.

Standard spell check programs are fine, but I now have something better that works across platforms and all online sites: GRAMMARLY.  This allows me to have my emails, social media posts, and documents edited in one simple format.
