Goodwill....A Perfect Teacher's Aide!

It's about that time of year again...when many teachers hang up the beach hat and return to their classrooms.
When I am working in my classroom and attending in-service meetings, I like to wear a polished casual style.

You just never know when parents of students or colleagues will stop by. 


GOODWILL provides me with the looks I desire for this time!  I like to layer because simply put... outside you can fry an egg on the pavement and inside, at times, you can freeze your own ice cubes!  My recent trip to GOODWILL (for those of you in SA, I went to the store at highway 281S and Bitters) brought me three great blouses from Coldwater Creek and some autumn decorations for the classroom next month!
You cannot beat this price for a beautiful autumn wreath and I found two which looked brand new!  If you want to touch up your classroom or even your wardrobe for the beginning of a new school year, think GOODWILL to stretch the budget...plus purchases help your local community!


Make sure to stop by the other bloggers of KATIE'S FAVORITE THINGS BLOG HOP!!
 and then have a wonderful Thursday!

  1. Perfect look for the classroom, Pam.
    Germany has different times for the summer break and here in Bavaria it just started and will last 6 weeks. But my sun is at university already and my daughter will start in September.

  3. Fortunately, I am beginning my two week break after teaching all year and summer school. Lovely outfit. I, too, like to look professional while teaching. I think it is important for our profession and a good example. Have a lovely day ~

  4. You look terrific, Pam, so pulled together and ready for anything. I shopped at Goodwill yesterday and bought a cool denim shirt that I converted to a denim vest - for about $3! Have a wonderful day, xoxoxo

  6. Didn't this summer fly by? I can't believe kids will be back in school in a couple of weeks.
    You don't need to convince me that Goodwill is a fantastic place to find what you need :)
    I go every week and always find something special. I wish we could Goodwill shop together...it would be so fun!

  7. You are so right about the frying outside and the freezing inside
    I can't believe it is already August
