Teacher Mini-Emergency Kit: Prepare for the unexpected!

Do you have an emergency kit in your classroom? I'm not talking about a First Aid kit. I'm referring to things that you might need in the very likely case of little emergencies like spillages and little illnesses. I can tell you that I feel much more comforted knowing that mine is there.

I recommend the following:
*A FULL change of clothes - In this line of work, you'd never know who could throw up, pee or have a nosebleed on you. On a less disgusting note, the risk of paint spillages or getting soaked with water (especially during capacity lessons or science experiments) is also a high possibility.

*Spare shoes - Just in case you wear a pair you mistakenly thought were broken in and don't want to hobble around like a fool all day. Or maybe because one of the aforementioned bodily fluids has found its way to your shoes.

*"Lady products" (not necessary for you male readers!) - more than likely in a school with other women you (or they) will forget one of these and be glad that there's a backup.

*Crackers - It's great to have a spare pack there for the time you forget your lunch or the day your tummy doesn't feel quite right.

*Throat lozenges/spray - If you're prone to a sore throat, it would be handy to have some to hand.  Make sure that any medicated lozenges/sprays are kept in a safe place, out of the reach of children.
