1- Thirty One Utility Tote
I received this tote and matching lunchbox as a gift from a parent during my student teaching. Seems so long ago! Many teachers buy a medium sized Open Top File Box from The Container Store to place inside the tote. This is especially helpful for parent-teacher conference preparation or grading since you are able to add multiple files and all of your papers stay organized. Although my bag does not have a zipper, I saw on another blog that the new Utility Totes do.
I mostly use my Longchamp on the weekend. I am one of *those* teachers that works at school on the weekend. I love how quiet it is and I have everything I need in one place. I also use this as an everyday bag (errands, tutoring, etc.).
I take this bag to school everyday. It has outside and inside pockets and is large enough to hold my essentials. I fit my binder, lesson plans, projects, and some supplies. It does not have a zipper, but if you look closely there is a way to close the bag.
