I wonder when she's gonna be fired? Such a lovely gesture, but some parent, somewhere, is gonna have a meltdown about how inappropriate it is. Bless her
I always kept a bag like this in my classroom. My girls knew where it was and were welcome to take it and walk out the door and use/take whatever they needed.
I made these for my two middle schoolers to keep in their bags for the "just in case" scenario. My youngest got her's yesterday. A good thing to add is an extra pair of new underwear if you make one for your own daughter. They can throw the other one in the trash if needed.
My daughter and I have done the same thing. She's very vocal about the process and asks a lot of questions with me, but the idea of using the word "period" in front of other people freaks her out. We've decided to use the code word "pickles." So she has a pickle pouch in her backpack in case of a pickle emergency.
I remember in the early 70s, a friend of mine had white jeans on and started her period unexpectedly. They gave her a pad and made her wear her jacket tied around her waist for the rest of the day. We were in 7th grade and she was humiliated. This makes me so happy.
For all of the naysayers...
At least no one is "shaming" (Christ, how I hate new terminology) /making these girls feel like crap just because of how they're biologically set up.
Need a tampon? Take the bag. Catch up on notes when you're back. Voila.
I had a student who started her period unexpectedly. I remember giving her my sweatshirt to tie around her waist for the rest of the day. I didn't think twice about doing it, but I still remember the grateful look she gave me.
Good teachers really go above and beyond these days. Every teacher I know spends their own money for classroom supplies, but this is really sweet and thoughtful!
I love this!! I did the same thing for my daughter to keep in her backpack or locker. No sense in feeling shame over something we have no control over. What a great teacher!
One of the most useful things I ever learned in health class was how to change a pad in less then 30 seconds without pulling down your pants
