Treating the Teachers!

I went back to work yesterday and I took a couple of things with me to treat our teaching staff...

For the bathroom I put together a Survival Kit with lotion, spray deodorant, hairspray, mouthwash, air freshener, static guard, a lint roller, and tide pen.  If you are anything like me you look like a total mess by lunch.  Sometimes you just need a little mid-day pick me up, right??!!
 Do you find yourselves eating with sporks more often than not??!  I decided that our teachers should be able to eat with actual forks and spoons, ha!  So, I made a little basket of Lounge Luxuries for our staff!  I also added toothpicks, salt/pepper, and sweetener.
You can find the tags above HERE and HERE!

I also decided to shine a little positivity through adding bright decorations in our common spaces.  I decorated our staff bathroom (but didn't take pictures, so sorry!)  and our workroom...

Goodness, the polka dots look really intense in these pictures, but in person it is much more subtle!  I added a pennant banner from Target... also I ran out of border so I added these punch out letters/numbers from Mardel.  To make "Choose Joy" I typed one letter per page using the font MTF Jumping Jax.  I printed those on colored paper and cut them out one at a time!  Nothing fancy here, ha!
 On the opposite side of he workroom I made this bulletin board.  I added inspirational quotes from Hope King!
Tomorrow I am going to work on my final board in the lounge.  I cut out over 35 letters for that one, so I'm really ready to put it up, ha!  I also printed out these pretty prints from Michelle Oakes!  They will be the perfect thing to bring a little positivity to our eating space!

WOW WOW WOW!! You are on the biggest positivity train and I love it!! I am sure that all of what you did will make someone's day a little brighter. I love all of your ideas on how you are spreading kindness to others. I bet your teacher friends and coworkers will appreciate all that you did. I can't wait to see the final bulletin board. :)

Once again we are on the same wavelength!!! I've been thinking about giving our teacher's lounge a little face lift :0) You've inspired me to get on it. Hope you have a great school year!!!!

Amy,
Thank you for inspiring me to bring back the love to my secondary campus. I hope you don't mind, but I shared your blog posts and ideas with a group of secondary sellers hoping to empower us all to do small acts of kindness around our campuses. You have sparked a fire! :)

Such a great idea! I was making gifts for the new teachers in my building - but the bathroom thing is such a great way to welcome my "old" co-workers! Thanks for the idea - I'm going to get right on it!

A hello from Brazil! I love your work so much! I'm a teacher at the 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades (one grade by year). God bless you and your beautiful family.

....and I thought buying bathroom spray was a good thing. Now I want to do what you do! How nice of you.

Like two earlier comments, I have decided to do the AMAZING bulletin board to start the year with my 8th grade homeroom. What fonts did you use for the cursive words?

Thanks for your help,
Sue Yarger
