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.)
2 bottles of hand sanitizer (1 really used to be enough.)
A week’s supply of throat lozenges
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.
