One of my favorite Beauty Guru YouTube tags is "What's in My Bag?"! I love to see what my favorite YouTubers are carting around with them on a daily basis. So why not take a look at what a teacher carries around with them everyday? As schools start up again this week, I thought I'd give you a look into what I'm currently carrying in my bag.
So here's my new bag. It's my first Vera Bradley and I LOVE IT (thanks Mommba)! My meetings started up this week and I already had tons of compliments. I got mine at the outlet mall but here is the closest I could find! The bag itself has two outside pockets and plenty of inside pockets. It's great because I have compartments for my pens/pencils/dry erase markers, phone, and any other random items. Also, my favorite feature is the clip on key ring! That way I don't have to worry about my keys falling out!
Inside of my bag I have a binder, agenda, notebooks, books, etc. Here's a closer look...
Teacher Binder: This binder has tabs for the classes that I teach and the classes that I take. I love that the dividers have pockets for me to quickly file away extra handouts or newspaper/magazine clippings I've read that may be useful for class! I use the front pocket to house urgent paperwork. That way I don't forget it because it's always the first thing that I see.
Agenda, Portfolio, & Notebooks: This is my new agenda from Office Max. I love this one because it's the Week-at-a-Glance style and is set up hourly. The older I get, I find that I have more and more appointments. I have way more scheduling to do. Stay tuned for a post on how to use hourly planners as a teacher! Then I have my portfolio. This bad boy is from when I visited MIT. LOVE it! In it I just have notebook paper and resumes. Hey, you never know when you'll need to pass out a resume! Lastly, a notebook. I'm always taking notes in meetings. I carry one 5-subject notebook: 3 sections for the classes I take, 1 section for the class I teach, and 1 section for programs that I am a part of.
Random Books: Lastly I have a collection of random books. I don't teach out of one particular book. I usually utilize a collection of readings from various books. At the moment, I am carrying around books for some research I am doing on Onomastics. You'll also see there a notepad for leaving friends notes when I miss them. Love that too! I believe this is from Target, but it was a gift from my Sister-in-Law.
So that's what's in my bag right now. What's in your bag? What am I missing? Tweet me or comment down below!
