It is that time of year again for teachers when the novelty of back-to-school ends and the weary, long days are here to stay. Being a teacher can be tiring as you are on your feet all day long dealing with children and definitely a stressful environment. A little planning on my end can definitely help how my day is going to go, and I have found in my 15+ years teaching that having these four things ready to go and in my closet helps at least with the comfort.
4 Things Every Teacher Needs in Their Closet
Comfortable Shoes with Dr. Scholl’s® Custom Fit® Orthotics – This is a must have for anyone who is on their feet all day and suffers from lower back or foot pain. My husband swears by these as well and as a State Trooper, he definitely is on his feet a lot too. I have a few different options that I rotate for shoe selection but I always wear something that I know will be comfortable- can’t take any chances.
A lightweight cardigan or jacket – I never know what the temperature of my classroom is going to be so I always make sure I have a few things that I can layer.
A tote bag – As big as you can carry! Seriously though I have one tote bag that is my workbag that I fill with anything and everything I may need for the day. Small first aid kit, planner, calendar, pens, chewing gum, a snack and of course a spare set of keys.
Scarf- I like to think that this pulls together an outfit nicely. Having a few in different colors and textures really can brighten up a look plus it can serve as additional warmth if my classroom is a bit chilly.
At the start of every school year I make sure to get Dr. Scholl’s® Custom Fit® Orthotics for my shoes. There is nothing worse than being uncomfortable or having leg or back pain while you are working. This year, going back to school was especially hard for me because I had my second back surgery last spring so I knew I definitely needed all the help I could get to stay on my feet comfortably.
I went to Walmart to use the Custom Fit® Kiosk, Dr. Scholl’s® experts in biomechanics developed this advanced FootMapping® technology. It uses over 2,000 pressure sensors to create your Custom Footmap – identifying your arch type, foot length, and unique pressure points. In under 2 minutes, the kiosk evaluates all this data and recommends the Custom Fit® Orthotic Inserts that are right for you. This was so helpful and easy to use.

Being a teacher is hard work but extremely satisfying. There is something about helping and teaching young minds every day that really evokes a feeling of compassion in everyday life. It is definitely helpful when you look and feel good too! I am so glad I have Dr. Scholl’s® Custom Fit® Orthotics because they are an effective solution for foot, knee and lower back pain.
