Those of you who regularly read my blog will know that I have recently decided that I would like to pursue teacher training when I graduate and I am one of those people who consider such an occasion as a reason to purchase a new Filofax.
However I am currently debating over which option to go for! I am settled on the idea of an A5 as I would eventually like to use the same organiser as my markbook and space where I plan out all of my lessons and so ideally I would like something which will last me a while yet still being friendly to a student's budget, quite the dilema!
My top 3 favourites from the Filofax website are:
1. A5 Aqua Malden
Whilst this is by no means a student friendly purchase and is currently out of stock everywhere I have looked it may not be the most realistic of options. However I have wanted a Malden organiser for quite some time now and I am confident that the organiser would last me a while, the colour also seems fun and less corporate which would be ideal for a primary school teacher (fingers crossed!)
2. A5 Red Domino
I have spoken numerous times about my love for the Domino organiser and I think the elastic closure would be really useful for a teacher's organiser. It is also considerably cheaper and I would be less worried about carrying it around in my handbags or it becoming accidentally damaged within the classroom setting. I only wish that you could still find the Dominos in brighter colours! Or green, a green domino would be idealistic for me!!
3. A5 Metropol in Red
Again this is quite a student budget friendly organiser and it is not real leather so it would be much less heartbreaking if it where to become accidentally damaged. It also has two pen loops which would be great for an organiser that I want to take on its own somewhere as I wouldn't need to take a pencil case as well. My only concern with the Metropol is that sometimes it can appear quite streaky.
Are there any other trainee teachers or qualified teachers out there? Which Filofax / Organiser would you recommend?
