A couple of weeks ago, I received a package from a company called BEARTEAU & Co. Its a shop that a teacher, Jose Cortez, started with his husband, Shawn. They started the company in their home and up until recently they’ve move into an actual warehouse space (pretty exciting).
For over a year I’ve wanted to buy some teacher accessories from them. I wasn’t a teacher yet but their products were so cute and I was like omg I gotta have something from them! Well a couple of weeks ago I was finally able to! I got a large planner, a large tote bag, and a clipfolio (clip board and portfolio all in one) and I got all of that for under $60! Now granted, I did have a $10 gift card and they were having a huge and I do mean huge Back-to-School sale (up to 75% off) but even if I didn’t have all those discounts, I’d still buy from them.
I first discovered BERTEAU & Co. from Get Your Teach On (GYTO). If you’ve never heard GYTO, it’s an educational company started by teachers, Hope & Wade King, and they focus on getting students engaged in what they’re learning. They have books (they’re publishing another very soon) and hold conferences several times a year (next year’s national conference will be here in Orlando and I’m freaking excited). When I saw the “Living My Best Life” clip folio I knew this brand would definitely make me go broke lol. The different designs they offer would surely fit various personalities out there. For example, I loved the rose gold detail they had on one of their planners and so I had to get that and the tote bag to match.
Check out their site. If it seems like something you’d be interested in, purchase something for yourself. Not a teacher but know some teachers? Buy gifts for them. They have everything from pencil holders to tumblers to planners, totes, the options are endless.
