The perfect teacher tote would be no tote at all, correct? And if you are a teacher who never has homework, I am in awe of you! My teaching experiences (and those of my teaching peeps) confirm that a night without teacher homework is a rarity. So what is the best tote for a teacher?
The teachers I know carry a variety of vessels. Some carry tote bags. One teacher I know carries a very impressive leather satchel that she snagged from a thrift store. Another carries a backpack. Milk crates are popular but backbreaking unless you have a rollie dealie. I recently noticed that a major office supply store sells a mobile folding cart with a lid that looks a lot like a milk crate on wheels. I was impressed by that!
I carry the knockoff cloth bag pictured. I love this bag because of its width. I love this bag so much that when one of the handles ripped off, I took the bag to a shoe repair shop and had the handle reattached. Actually, I had both handles securely stitched in place.
What’s your favorite teacher tote—other than no tote at all?
