(RERUN) Top 10 Classroom Must-Haves for Preschool Teachers
Play • 42 min

The one thing teachers don't have a lot of besides money is time. There's never enough time in the day to finish everything that needs to be done!

That's why in this episode, I'll be sharing my 10 favorite classroom must-haves; items that have saved me time or made my teacher life easier.

Some of these things I've used for a very long time and I couldn't live without in my classroom, while others may be new to you. 

My purpose isn't to get you to buy a bunch of things. Instead, I'm sharing my perspective about things that I like and have found helpful in the classroom.

That way, you won't have to waste your time and money on stuff you don't need. 

This is going to be a fun episode, so stick around!
