Teachers, if you carry too many things on your lanyard, you can save your neck and use teacher waist aprons and toolbelts instead. Teachers are using waist aprons with deep pockets and toolbelts to keep their necessities handy as they move about the classroom. Teacher aprons and toolbelts are perfect for carrying pens, hand sanitizers, reward stickers, presentation clickers, post-its, and your cell phone. This would solve the problem of setting down items, then spending time looking for them.
I like that they allow you to reward students as you walk around the classroom, and not have to run over to your desk drawer. A teacher apron makes a great mobile desk!
I love to find awesome classroom organization ideas. As an Amazon affiliate, I may earn a commission for purchases using my links. The ideas and paid links below are of aprons that teachers use, but plain servers’ waist aprons work just as well as teacher aprons, and you can customize them with vinyl stickers.
