Best Handbags For Esl Teachers

Best Bags For Teachers On The Go

ESL Teachers living abroad often have a lot of stuff to carry. As teachers, we recommend bags that provide comfort and utility to teachers who need to carry a load to and from work.

What should you look for in a bag?

There are a number of factors you are going to have to consider when looking through the best bags for teachers. First of which will be what types of items and what quantities of these items you are going to be toting around. If you are a classroom ESL teacher for a high school, for example, you will probably have a few textbooks and tons of paperwork that you will be carrying back and forth between the school and home. You are going to want something that is easy to organize and that doesn’t put too much strain on your body. In contrast to this if you are an online ESL tutor you probably won’t be moving around as much but will need a good computer bag with extra room for when you decide to travel. Preferably, one that’s waterproof as your computer is going to be your lifeline to work. It is important to consider not just making things easier to carry but also safer. Backpacks, for example, are very convenient for lighter loads but for items that are heavy and bulky and that you will need to carry in large quantities using a backpack can potentially lead to long-term nerve and muscle damage in the neck and shoulders.

What types of bags do different teachers need?

As mentioned, different types of teachers and tutors are going to have vastly different needs for a bag or tote. I’ll examine some of those different requirements so that you can make the best decision when looking at teacher bags:

Online ESL tutors – if you are part of this growing segment of the global ESL teaching population then you are probably going to be looking for a bag for travel. The main benefit of working online is that you don’t have to commute to a school every day and thus won’t have to carry large amounts of papers and bulky textbooks. However, you may be considering how you are going to work when you go on holiday or if you want to travel on a more consistent basis. If this is the case then you want to find something that is going to protect all of your electronics and allow you to easily transport any props that you may use in your online classroom. The average online tutor is going to have at the very least a laptop, headset, and some kind of background. Aside from these items, some tutors may also use an external webcam, external microphone, props such as stuffed animals, a green screen, an ergonomic keyboard, a computer mouse, and a backup internet source such as a portable WiFi router. The most important thing if you are an online ESL tutor and you are looking for a bag is to make sure that your electronics are secure and your bag is preferably waterproof. Especially, if you are traveling to other countries there will be plenty of chances for your equipment to take a beating and minimizing the chance for anything to break will prevent you from losing revenue due to canceled classes or even potentially losing your job depending on your company’s cancellation policy. You will also want something that is easily lockable so that you can lessen the chances of items being stolen.

Classroom-based ESL teachers – if you are a classroom-based ESL teacher then you are probably looking for a bag that is going to make your daily commute easier. Especially, if you are in a major city where you are walking and constantly moving between cabs, subways, motorbikes, and sky trains or if you are in a remote village where the infrastructure isn’t great and you have to hike or traverse awkward terrains such as hills or rocky dirt paths. You will probably also have mountains of paperwork that you have to take home at the end of the day and bring back on top of any bulky textbooks you use in the classroom and any books that your students may be reading as part of their curriculum. If you are in a major city with good sidewalks and good public transportation, you may consider going the route of a rolling bag that takes the strain off your back. Conversely, if you are in a location that forces you to walk over uneven terrain or where the infrastructure is lacking and you have to walk then you are going to want to look for a very solid bag that distributes the weight in a way that you aren’t going to have neck or back pains at the end of each day.
