I began putting some of my creations on Teachers Pay Teachers and Teachers Notebook during a very professionally challenging year. I was teaching in a very restricted environment. I was carrying far more than my share of the work load. I felt like my voice was vanishing. I needed a creative outlet.
Putting some of my creations out into the marketplace set off an enormous chain reaction! I decided I needed a blog to share my creations, then I needed a business Facebook page. As a "not very fancy" teacher-blogger, I refused to hire anyone to help me, so I had to learn a lot. Let me say that again for emphasis: I had to learn a lot. I listed lots of the resources I found valuable in this process on my "Free Resources" page. It's a good thing I love learning! It's been an incredible journey. I've now ventured into Instagram and Twitter!

*By treasure hunting, I mean going to thrift stores and garage sales, scouring the Internet for free stuff, and sifting through piles of stuff other teachers are throwing out. :)
But enough about me, what about you? What do you think of me? (Kidding!)
I'd love to get to know you! Let's get connected! Leave me a comment!
