This teacher’s purse

Tonight I finally cleaned out my purse.  It was long over-due, but I’ll try not to go into too many details.  As I was cleaning it out, I was amused to see how much teaching has altered the contents of what I carry with me from day-to-day.  I found things like:

Pencils (Yes, I never carried pencils before this.  Now I have four.)

Crayons (There were only two.  There used to be a whole box in there.)

Index cards

2 bottles of hand sanitizer (1 really used to be enough.)

A week’s supply of throat lozenges

Teacher ID

Post-It notes

Paper clips


A complete set of alphabet letter-magnets (I don’t remember why they were in there, but I must have had a good reason at the time.)


1.) I should clean out my purse more often.

2.) Being a teacher is great.

About Katiehttps://thoughtsong.wordpress.comI like to dabble in writing out thoughts on scripture and life events.  Music, to me, is a dear friend, the structure that organizes my thoughts, and the feelings of my heart. Most of my time, however, is spent Teaching and Homemaking (especially trying to create hygge and live as a gluten-free baker). Take all these things away and I still have my true identity: I'm a sinner saved by grace and who dearly loves the Savior who first loved her. And that's really all that matters.
