If you have teacher friends or happen to be a teacher yourself, then we know they (or you!) are overworked, stressed out, and just plain tired. So we’ve put together a small list of gadgets that may make some things a little easier. So whether you’re on the lookout for a teacher grad gift or looking for a way to treat yourself, we’ve got you covered! And hey, in case no one’s told you recently, you’re doing great. Let’s get started!
If you’re new to the teaching game or looking for the perfect gift for a new teacher, we highly recommend a laminator. No more waiting in line for the one at work and no more jammed laminator sheets. And not that we condone working off the clock, we know you all do it anyway, a laminator is great to have at home to work on classroom things at home when you have some extra time. And hey, if you’re laminating things at home, the whole family can pitch in to help!

Whether it’s you, your teacher friend, students, or all of the above, there’s a good chance someone in that mix struggles a little bit with time. Well, those days are long gone after you invest in a visual timer. This is great to have in the front of the classroom to help everyone manage time better or even to give yourself a minute or two before you’re ready to take questions.

Do you ever get a little tired of using your teacher voice or that notorious teacher stare? Try out a wireless doorbell as an attention grabber instead! Trust us when we say it’s just crazy enough to work.

Okay, this may look like it’s for little ones (and it could be!) but the Eggspert turns your classroom into a game show, which means studying for upcoming tests is now fun. And we promise the big kids like it just as much as the little kids

Tablet Charging Base
A lot of schools have started giving students tablets for the school year and we are all about it! But keeping them charged and making sure there are enough chargers and so on has become quite the hassle. If you or your teacher friend struggles with space and/or charger availability then you (or they) need this charging station! It holds six devices using up the smallest bit of space. And yes, tablets can stay in their protective case while on the base.
