Never in my wildest imagination did I think this would EVER happen!

I started TPT as a creative outlet and to grow my technology skills.  
Here is what my first TPT payout looked like
Promise not to laugh?

Hahaha!  Obviously I had no business skills.  
For the first few years I dabbled in TPT when I had time.

Then, I met this amazing group of ladies who saved me from myself.  (Thankfully!)

I have made some AMAZING friendships along the way, learned about technology, and marketing, and grown so much as a teacher!

I am thankful every day for TPT and Paul Edelman, who founded TPT.  What a great example of someone who saw a need, filled that need, and made thousands of teachers available to come to my classroom every day simply through the click of a button.

When they say life-changing, to me, that describes TPT perfectly and for so many reasons!

So, who is ready to celebrate with me?


So along with my goal of being a better blogger, I am linking up with Doodlebugs Teaching for

Remember, I said I was going to be a better blogger, not a timely blogger (but there's always next week!).

So here's a look back at my week.


Ahhh!  New Year's Eve in Vegas...in my pajamas...on the couch...  YEP!  That's the life!  Super cold here this year anyway!  So we rang in the new year at home...just the way we like it...snacks, movies and did I mention pajamas?


This great quote came up on Lynda Morgat's (Curls and a Smile) IG feed.  LOVE it...stole it!
Can you think of anything that this doesn't encompass?  Great goals for the new year!  Are you ready?

I also managed to pump out a few new products!  YAY!  You can grab these Snip-Its individually or bundled.  If you like integrated learning based around one topic, you may be interested in this Arctic Animals unit.  One stop planning! 


This is one of my favorite parts of this past week!  A new look to my blog.  Doesn't Christi over at Design by Christi do an amazing job?  Love her!  


Here is my favorite new app of the week.  This is fabulous!  It has preset spinners, or you can use it to make one for just about anything.  I programmed all of my students' names into one spinner and now we have a random student name generator.  I can't wait to use this on Monday!

So that's it!  A look back at my week.
I have missed my kiddos an awful lot so I can't wait to get back to them this week.
I also can't wait to see what great things are in store next week!
