Hi there!  Welcome to the Tales from Outside the Classroom Teacher shop!  My shop brings together teacher passions, along with personal passions of mine, offering a fun mix of topics from Harry Potter to tacos to motivational quotes.  The products listed are printed direct-to-garment (DTG)- unlike vinyl tees they will not crack.  Due to the printing process, tees will have a smell when taken from the package and so you may want to wash them before wearing, though I just let mine air out for a bit.  I use Bella + Canvas tee for a soft, comfortable and flattering t-shirt that’s a bit more form fitted that regular tees in a soft, light fabric.  I typically wear camisoles or tanks underneath the light colored tees.  Most items will ship in about 5 business days.

Hi! I'm Tessa!

I’ve spent the last 15 years teaching in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades, and working beside elementary classrooms as an instructional coach and resource support. I’m passionate about math, literacy, and finding ways to make teachers’ days easier. I share from my experiences both in and out of the elementary classroom.
