Lanyards, Face Masks and ID Badge Reels For Teachers

Does your school day (or your adored teacher’s day) begin with a cup of coffee to go and a stack of papers to grade or are you already in class trying your best to control the ruckus coming from your little first graders who have just learned a new sing along song?

Whether it’s preschool or primary school, see if you can relate to this description of a day in the life of a resilient teacher:

  • planning your agenda for the week
  • recording and sharing your weekly agenda through a software system you’re not quite in love with
  • trying to keep everyone “with you” and not distracted during lecture
  • using your “kind voice” to mediate squabbles between kids
  • wishing your 30-minute lunch period would get here already
  • discovering you will have to work during your 3-minute lunch period
  • re-planning your agenda for the week
  • writing letters to parents about their child’s pinching/peeing/primping behavior
  • lots of apple or ball dodging at recess
  • grading the seemingly never-ending English paper pile that is due…yesterday
  • planning your agenda for the week

BooJee Beads identification jewelry can offer you various features that help teachers with juggling various parts of a busy school day.

Did you know that a strong working mother came up with the lightning bolt idea behind the million-dollar company, Boojee Beads?

It’s true! Nurse Lisa Harrington was working at the Cincinnati Hospital Children’s Ward and her 9-year old daughter hand-decorated her mom’s boring badge reel one day. As soon as Nurse Harrington clocked-in for her shift, the glammed-up badge reel was a hit. The badge reel put her patients at ease and really broke the ice.

The story goes to show that not only is “practical” important in what teachers wear, but so is “personalized”.

Practical Lanyards Buying Tips for Teachers

Teachers have lots of items they have to keep track of as part of their job, including these simple items:

  • keys to your car
  • flash drive with all your lessons
  • old-fashioned metal keys to classroom
  • school-issued ID Card
  • face mask

Losing one of these items during your school day can cause major delays in your lesson plan!

It can mean a day’s worth of back tracking and students disgruntled over being locked out of the classroom.

Imagine how much of your sanity you would lose if you lost one of these items – and yet still have to play it cool. Keep it cool with our 3-in-1 polyester ribbon lanyards.

Essential (and Washable) Lanyards and Personalized Combos

Not only can our CEO of Boojee Beads, Lisa Harrington attest that personalized lanyards is just what a teacher needs, but so do our hundreds of reviews from verified purchasers on Amazon.

Myriad of Colors and Designs to Pick From

Some badge holders only come in basic colors that offer no personality. Boojee Beads wants all teachers to be able to express themselves to the fullest! Our lanyards and badge reels come in all sorts of colors and fun designs. You might want to go for an animal design, have your faith close to your heart with a cross charm or have one with a sassy saying. In any case, we want you to pick what speaks most to you. Have fun with it; we know your kids will love to comment on your new lanyard.


“This lanyard makes swiping my badge much easier, considering the clip my badge was in had to always be taken off then put back on for every door I had to swipe to get through!” - verified purchaser

The retractable badge reel means never having to unclip your ID badge from your clothing or lanyard again.

Use your badge reel or lanyard as a talking piece between your fellow teachers or your students.

Breakaway Safety Badge Clasp

Most teachers are very active and may find themselves in situations where their lanyard may get snagged by a student or on a wall hook and the teacher may get hurt by the pull.

Thankfully, most of our lanyards come with a breakaway clasp where the lanyard will pop open if there is a strong tug. This feature is extremely important for teachers working with little tots who tend to enjoy pulling on everything they can get their hands on.


“The breakaway feature is essential. The company [Boojee Beads] always follows up with me. Will continue to buy these as they wear out.” - verified purchaser

Washable, Polyester Ribbon Lanyards

The ribbon lanyard is of 100% polyester and washable! We all know teachers try to be germ-free, but they interact with kids and the outdoors frequently, so just unclip the badge reel and toss the lanyard into the washing machine. Our face mask lanyards are also made of 100% polyester and are washable too!

Get a couple lanyards while you’re at it. You’ll probably want to rotate them, just to start a new conversation with the students and for washing, too.

Fun Face Masks

Our face masks are fashionable yet functional. Soft, light weight and reusable - just hand or machine wash and lay flat to dry.  The students will love the cute patterns you're wearing, and they are adjustable for a perfect fit.

Badge Clips That Don’t Ruin Your Clothes

Instead of the old-fashioned pins that make holes in your clothing, the badge reel simply clips onto your clothing. Many of our reels have the option of either a static belt clip or a spinning alligator clip (which can clip anywhere on your fabric and gives more flexibility).


Teachers have the duty of always radiating positivity in order to create positive vibes for the children to enjoy learning. Human’s affinity for beauty is something important to consider- especially when working with kids who just want to be happy all day long.

Having beautiful things in an environment affects people in a positive manner.

  • Positive words lead to positive thoughts and positive actions.
  • Happy colors, like pink, bright blue and purple, help augment happiness.
  • Attractive designs distract from negativity and pain.
  • Personal touches create talking pieces between coworkers.

Beauty in general turns down tensions and -importantly for teachers- opens doors to trust and playfulness.


“This is nice quality with sturdy hardware. I have gotten several compliments in the day and a half I’ve been wearing it.” – verified purchaser


“Teachers and students love this lanyard! It is sturdy, breakaway (which is a must for me), and cute to top it off! I love the notch that keeps my ID facing forward…” – verified purchaser


Surprise your favorite teacher with a gift that is equally stunning as it is practical for the busy life teaching follows. The holidays and birthdays aren’t the only moments for gifting. This great gift idea is great for teacher appreciation week, as it will be a constant reminder of your appreciation and your beloved teacher will always remember you whenever they look down to their pretty lanyard.


“I purchased about a hundred of these in a variety of designs for the people I work with. Some of them came with plastic badge holders which was an added bonus! All of them were lovely!”
