When I started my journey on Teachers pay Teachers almost three years ago, I never imagined how greatly it would affect my life. TpT has led me to become the best teacher I can be not only because it has encouraged me to develop hands-on and engaging materials to use with my students, but it also has allowed me access to some of the BEST teaching materials out there. I have made meaningful friendships with teachers both near and far thanks to TpT. It has also allowed me to teach part-time and focus on starting a business that I never even knew was possible! To say that TpT has blessed me is an understatement!
One of my all-time favorite rewards that comes with sharing my creations on TpT has been seeing how my units have impacted students all around the world. At the beginning of the school year, my good friend Kristen shared this picture with me of a class she had worked with in the Dominican Republic. They were able to celebrate their first day of kindergarten and use my little first day of school craft.
melt my heart
Over winter break, one of my Facebook fans sent me pictures of his 1st grade class in Seoul, Korea, learning about Frosty the Snowman using one of my winter units!
I often receive feedback from teachers who have made my solider boy craft, exclaiming how much they enjoyed the craft and having their students write letters to soldiers. Some of them even send the crafts and letters overseas so our military can enjoy them. So you can imagine my surprise over the past weekend, while watching the half-time show during the Super Bowl, I see this flash on the TV screen:
My little solider boy and girl made an appearance on national TV!!! And I didn't even have to pay 3 million dollars for the spot ;) Wowie, wow, wow!!!
