For the DIY teacher!

Hello!  It is me, Hilary from Second Grade is Out of This World!
I don't know about you, but when I want to do something in my classroom, I want to do it NOW!  I hate waiting around for someone else to have time to do it.  Enter:  The Teacher Toolbox.  Now, it is absolutely nothing fancy, and please don't think that I am allowed to alter my classroom willy-nilly, but there are times when I need something fixed that I know I am capable of fixing myself.  So, here is what I have, like I said, nothing fancy:
I have a multi-head screw driver (I got it in the dollar spot at Target), a hammer (old one of hubba's), an allen wrench, and some zip ties. 
I also store a lint roller, deodorant, and some body spray (you never know when these items come in handy).
I store them in a tub in my teacher cabinet.  

Thanks so much for stopping by and reading!  You can always visit me at my blog:


  1. Your post made me smile! - I am the QUEEN of DIY at my school! So much so that the custodians come to me when they need a tool of some kind! I know exactly what you mean about wanting it done NOW :-) I also have a box in my file cabinet filled with shout wipes, toothpaste, deodorant, fashion tape... and every kind of otc medicine available - tylenol, motrin, immodium... you never know when you're going to need it! ~ Lisa
