My Teacher Bag

Happy Friday!

I'm linking up with Beth from

Thinking of Teaching
for her teacher bag linky party!
I actually have two bags-depending on how much stuff I need to take to school/bring back home :)

They are both L.L. Bean's Boat and Tote (I always get them confused with Land's that bad?)

This is the one I use most often:
Medium Bag, Long Handles
I got this when I was a freshman in college. (That's why it says teacher and not my name...I also wasn't sure what I wanted to be called!)

That bag is a little over 10 years old! And except for some wrinkles and some stains, it is still as sturdy as when I first got it!

This is the one I used when I have a lot of stuff-it usually sits by my desk at school holding stuff. ;)
Large Bag, Long Handles
This bag is only 4 years old (and looks better because I don't use it as much :P)

These bags are very sturdy, and you can add pockets and zippers. It's also very reasonably priced (in my opinion) so if you're looking for a new bag, I would recommend these ( I would recommend getting the long handles-that way you can carry it over your shoulder!) Plus, they hold a lot!

Inside my bag:
A copy of the 4th grade CC standards-I have these stashed everywhere!

My Math Committee folder-hols all those important this I needed while grading the programs. This will probably come out once schools starts-we know what we'll be piloting, and I won't need it again until the end of the year.

A red bag.

This is handy because...
It holds a pen, pencil and the all important USB drive that holds everything on my computer so I can also access it at school. This way the stuff doesn't get smushed!

During the school year, I'll add:
My Flair pens and grading.

Some curriculum as well as professional books-depending on what I'm working on (and if I'm feeling ambitious! ;) Some stuff just comes along for the ride.

I also have a separate lunch bag (I'll be using a really nice one that a parent gave me this year), that I stuff in there before I stash it in the lunch room.

What's your teacher bag?

Smiles and Sunshine,


  1. Love my flair pens! I have one of those bags, they are super sturdy.

  3. I love to see what everyone uses! My school bag wore out so I am trying something new this year. I am using one of my Thirty- One bags that I usually use for my reading groups. Hope you have a great school year!
