Top 5 essentials a Teacher Must Have

Top 5 essentials a Teacher Must Have


Medical supplies - Teaching can turn out to be stressful on days, especially while teaching a noisy class. Therefore, it may help a teacher to keep a stock of paracetamol tablets or other painkillers with them in case of emergencies.
Adhesive tape and sticky notes - Adhesive tape can help repair anything from handbags to heels. Transparent tape helps to patch mobile phone screens, textbook covers, etc. Sticky notes on the table can help a teacher recognise where each student sits and also help distinguish between their books.
Hand sanitizer - It is important for a teacher to carry a bottle of hand sanitizer while dealing with a large group of students, as germs and diseases could easily spread.
Extension Cord- Unfortunately, not many classrooms have the required electrical outlets to support all the electrical appliances that we take to class. This could include cords for computers, projectors, speakers and chargers. Thus, carrying an extra cord may help prevent any last-minute glitches in class.
Water – A glass of water is always advised for teachers every 20 minutes. Drinking water at regular intervals not only keeps the body hydrated but also helps soothe the throat, which is strained easily due to constant talking, class after class.
