Students are not the only ones who face a new school year with mixed emotions. Teachers must also prepare themselves mentally, emotionally and physically.
Along with shopping for classroom supplies and making lesson plans, educators deserve to pamper themselves as they get back in the groove of reading, writing and 'rithmetic. A manicure may be just the ticket, especially when it involves super cute back to school nail art.
These adorable Crayola-inspired nails would be ideal for a kindergarten or preschool teacher.
