Yesterday, I spent five enjoyable hours at School Tools, a teacher supply store in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Spending a day in a teacher supply store pairs two of my favorite things: teachers and school supplies. My day was a blast, a bit of a gabfest really. I was there to talk with teachers about the most recent book offerings from The Mailbox. (You can check them out here.) In doing so, I had many delightful conversations. As you know, teachers know no strangers, which makes these events especially enjoyable for me!
Most of the teachers with whom I spoke were in the midst of decorating their rooms for back-to-school. The first official day of school for teachers in this area is next Monday; the students arrive the following Monday. I was struck by the amount of bulletin board border that was being purchased. Teacher after teacher after teacher left the store with one or more packs of border. I couldn’t be sure if these teachers came into the store looking for border or if they simply couldn’t resist the latest border colors and patterns. (Chevron patterns were definitely a hit.)
Now I’m super curious! Did you or do you plan to update your bulletin board border(s) this year? Or will you reuse your border from last year?
Thanks for sharing!
