wants to normalize teacher self-care and wellness. Through the delivery of a monthly self-care subscription box, we hope that teachers reclaim their time and power while disrupting society's expectations by putting themselves first. We want to encourage and inspire teachers to create a life that they do not have to escape from by caring for their whole authentic selves every single day. Spoil your favorite teacher with the gift of self care.

How It Works

Indulge in each month's goodies as you practice self care. Give yourself permission to pause and pour into your own cup.



Briandria, Teacher

This subscription has helped me learn how to make time for me. I know that in order to serve others, I have to be intentional with my me time.

So much love packed in this one little box that I didn't know I needed! Definitely an open when needed moment. Thank you!

Camille, Counselor

Each month, I look forward to receiving my subscription box, not knowing what’s inside, but eager to use each product provided. Even though I’m not a teacher, I feel that each item as well as the mental health and coaching tips meet me right where I am. As a licensed professional counselor, I have shared my boxes with clients and purchased boxes for family and friends. They make great birthday, Christmas, and grief care gifts. It’s my favorite subscription box!


Rachelle, Teacher

How To Get Away With Teaching has helped and supported me as a teacher this school year because it gives me something to look forward to every month. This has been the most challenging school year for me and I love seeing what's in the box. I love the different themes and resources provided. The products are great for self care! I'm happy to be a subscriber!



Nurturing the whole teacher. From the inside out.

Many think that self care is just bath bombs and bubble baths. While these are great ways to show yourself love, How To Get Away With Teaching is dedicated to providing you with helpful tools, resources, and activities to help guide you on your self-care journey. Each box includes bath & body items, lifestyle items, personal growth/development activities, and advice from a licensed health professional.

We get it. The kids need you at your best, BUT you also need YOU. Let us help you take the guesswork out of self care and empower you to have the audacity to care for yourself.


About Us

Meet Caitlin

Hello! Welcome to How To Get Away With Teaching. I am Caitlin Peay Smith, owner of How To Get Away With Teaching, LLC. I am a wife, mom, sister, friend, teacher, and entrepreneur. I have taught in elementary public schools for ten years. Like many teachers, I jumped right in to the work of teaching head first. I thought being a good teacher meant putting myself last, taking "do it for the kids" to the extreme which resulted in me losing my identity in teaching. I changed myself to fit into the teacher mold that society expected me to be.
