Ticonderoga Pencils

Solve the never-ending pencil problem. This is one all in person and hybrid teachers could use more of. I know I am ALWAYS running out of pencils, especially in kindergarten, where pencils seem to just disappear 🤨



Gift for Teachers at Christmas Time: Mary Kay Satin Lips

Mary Kay Satin Lips

I don’t know about y’all, but my lips get especially dry during the winter season. So this winter I’ll definitely be stocking up on this for myself. This is a powerful combo of a scrub and a lip balm to keep chapped lips at bay and return the moisture to them.
