When I had more time, I used to make my own costumes and it was lots of fun. I had many ideas and I was sure, that no other teacher would wear the same costume. But times have changed and my job as a teacher is now busier than ever. I do not have that much time and energy anymore to create my own costumes.

There are so many great and cheap teacher Halloween costumes on Amazon, which I can recommend to all of my colleagues. I sat together with a few other teachers and started the research to put together a list of the best 30 teacher Halloween costumes. When we put together a list of our favourites, we were laughing and we can not wait for Halloween to arrive this year.
