Student Teacher Welcome Basket

I'm super excited... my student teacher starts tomorrow! I'm being trained by Virginia Commonwealth University to be apart of their Clinical Faculty. Which basically means their student teachers will teach in my room and I will coach/mentor them. I had my first training yesterday and I'm really excited about this step in my professional career. I've never had a student teacher before and look forward to learning from her as she learns from me.

I was racking my brain on what to do for her and of course I took to Pinterest. I saw a cute ABC Basket where there was an item for each letter of the alphabet. I knew I couldn't pull that off in one day so then I thought about doing the same thing but with the word "WELCOME." So after church I went to Walmart, Target and Bath and Body works for all the items I needed for my basket.

W- water
E- esos lip balm
L- lotion
C- chex mix (thought about chips, cheese its or a cupcake)
O- oreos
M- muffins (thought about M&Ms)
E- extra gum (thought about eclipse gum too)


  1. this is so creative!! She will be delighted when she see this :) :)

  2. What a great idea! Your student teacher will feel so welcome in your room :)
