Friday’s Fabulous Find

Happy Friday! During my time subbing, I have filled a notebook with the numerous good ideas, activities, & finds I’ve discovered along the way.  Each Friday, I’m going to showcase some of my favorite ideas as a Fabulous Find.

Today’s Find: Free Fonts!

Whether you are making substitute business cards, substitute letterhead for notes to teachers, or creating your own worksheets & handouts — you can’t beat Free Fonts!


I stumbled upon a fabulous site, Fonts for Peas, that offers a wealth of free fonts & instructions on how to download & use with your word processor.

Take a look at the gorgeous samples below!

Beautiful, right? I can just begin the long list of uses for these cuties! Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Instruction for downloading can be found here.

Back to School Shopping: Take Two!

Being savvy

is just as important for a substitute as it is for a businessman. I say that because it is very important  that you are making good contacts and establishing a good network.

One thing that will aid in this endeavour is having your own, personal business card! Which is the second on my list of must-haves for your back to school bag!

Business cards: are effective for handing out contact info to teachers or principals as a way to have your number/email address ready & on hand! For those substitutes in a long-term setting, they are also a great way to establish open communication with parents. You never know when you’ll be in a situation where a crisp, clean, and contemporary business card will help convey a professional and prepared impression! [Note: these cards can jump start a side career, such as tutoring! What a great way to start a personal & educational business!]

DIY using heavy cardstock & Publisher. There you will find a great template that can help you outline a stylish card OR check out one of my favorite websites, www.etsy.com, to have a card custom-designed for you!

seller poshgirl boutique offers a wide variety of business cards at etsy.com

It is appropriate to include: Your name, degree/certification, email & phone number

Business cards are practical & polished. It is a way to make YOU stand out as a professional, leaving quite a nice impression, if I do say so myself!
