Today I’m sharing some of the best slow cooker meals for teachers. I don’t know about you, but I LOVE using my slow cooker. Let’s face it, our jobs can be very busy, overwhelming and exhausting. And I find meal planning and meal prep on top of that just the cherry on top of a very overwhelmed Nikki.
That’s where my love for the slow cooker comes from. I love being able to dump everything into a slow cooker in the morning and then food is ready when I get home in the evening. And I thought it’s about time I shared some of those slow cooker recipes with my fellow teacher friends too!

First of all, I thought I’d share my go-to slow cooker. My slow cooker is the trusty crock-pot. I have had this one for over 8 years at this point and it still works amazing! Although I have recently picked up a new one since I cook so much in there now, I love to have two on the go for special occasions if I’m hosting!
Below I have linked where you can get the slow cooker from. While I LOVE mine, if it’s unavailable don’t stress! There are so many other great slow cookers available too.
