Being a teacher is hard. Our hours are long, our feet hurt by the end of the day, and our job is never ending. It's the most rewarding job that you could possible have, but it can also be very difficult to find some work-life balance and time to treat yourself. As teachers, we deserve to be spoiled every once in a while. We're constantly doing for others so when someone does something for us, we appreciate it even more.
That's exactly how it felt like when I received my first package from The Teacher's Crate. As a longtime fan and admirer of Birch Box and Stitch Fix, when I heard of this subscription box JUST for teachers, I knew it would be something special! When I saw the package sitting in front of my door with that cute little owl on it, I got all kinds of excited. Who doesn't love coming home to multiple gifts picked just for you?!
When you first open your box from The Teacher's Crate, you're immediately giddy with excitement. The first thing you see is the careful packaging and personalized note waiting for you.
The note details The Teacher's Crate philosophy and how they're dedicated to giving teachers something they will love. Ummmm yes please, I thought FINALLY a company gets it! The note continued to detail the different items found in the crate and why they were chosen just for teachers.
Each item in the crate was cuter than the last. I loved the bookmark and put it right into my book as soon as I got it. And who doesn't love a large stack of adorably designed post-it notes?! Not this teacher! Not to mention as a first grade teacher obsessed with all things craftivities, I knew the sparkly red border was bound to come in handy. It's evident that every item inside The Teacher's Crate was carefully chosen with an on-the-go and dedicated teacher in mind. I couldn't wait to put my new greeting stickers and mousepad to good use at school.
But, the one thing I was most excited for was this "TOTES" adorable tote that couldn't have come at a better time. My teacher bag was on the fritz and I knew this tote would definitely come in handy. You know you're a teacher when you can't have enough tote bags! Am I right?!
I can't wait to receive my next subscription box from The Teacher's Crate and find out what super cute items they've chosen for the next month. I will definitely be recommending this subscription service to all of my coworkers and am going to gift my mentee a subscription for Teacher's Appreciation coming up!
