What's in my back-pack?


 I know lots of you are probably already back in school, but I head back on Thursday!
My schedule is really weird this semester, I have night class on Monday from 5:15-8:15 (if you've ever taken French 101 let me know!)
Then on Tuesday & Thursday I have class from 4:30-6:30 PM.

Starting on Sept. 4, I'll be sent to a high school to do my student teaching during the AM hours, so I'm excited to see where that's going to take me!

If you're a secondary ed major or a high school teacher, please let me know what to expect for student teaching because I'm so nervous!


The number one staple is my backpack, which is the North Face Jester back-pack.
I've had this backpack literally since I started freshman year and it has held up so well. It's padded and protected, has lots of pockets, and I love the plaid.


I just got my new Macbook Air for my birthday and I'm so excited to be able to use it this semester.
It's so light and I bought a cheap clear case on Amazon so that I could put all my pretty Red Bubble stickers on it, plus my Seaside sticker!


These aren't all of the supplies that I use, but I do love colorful pens & pencils (it just makes it more fun to take notes/tests). White out is a must for me when I'm writing in my planner-if I mess up I can't just mark it out!

Post-it's are also my best friend, they are so useful to use in my planner or to mark certain pages of my notes and those page flags are great for planning out weekly reading.


My binder for the semester is just a plain green one from Target & I printed out a monogrammed paper to spice up the front (I need to change it because I'm married now-hello!)
The planner is from Erin Condren, and I haven't gotten a new one like everyone else has. I'm waiting until the new year!

My planner is an absolute must for me & I'll be doing an organizational post soon!


I've really paired down what I need over the last five years that I've been in school.
I'm excited that I'm finally able to see the light at the end of the tunnel, just two semesters left and I'll be done & be licensed to teach in Alabama!

Until next time. . .

xoxo,

  2. Love this! I'm teaching THREE classes this semester, plus trying to finish my dissertation, so I'm definitely being conscientious about what's in my bag!

    I took French years ago, but I used this book to refresh for my language exam a couple years ago - it's great!
