Teachers are Heroes!

300 × 250 

Do you think that teachers are heroes? Well, I believe that we are! We do so many things for our students and they love us for it too! I'm sure that you can think of one of those acts that you had done to make sure your kiddos were safe and sound, ready to take on the mantle of learning comfortably. Our role must not be slighted or glanced over as insignificant because it is isn't.  

Teachers Pay Teachers is honoring our teachers on February 25th with a sitewide sale with their 'Teachers are Heroes' campaign and I am joining them in this venture. On that day all of my products would be on sale at 20% discount. PLUS with the promo code HEROES you get an additional 10% off at checkout. Isn't that amazing! 

So come celebrate our heroic teachers with  this great opportunity to get my fantastic products on sale storewide!

Book Hospital

It is always heart breaking to throw away old books to make way for new ones. Over the years I have kept repairing titles to get just a little more life out of them. I am not as fortunate as many so I hold on to what I have simply because replacements are not forthcoming, unless I spend my own money on new ones (sometimes). So, for this new year I'm really going to have to throw away the worn out ones, especially those that my students have used so much that pages are missing.

Here's one of my favorites that I could not bear to throw away. With a little glue and tape it's going to be a-okay for my budding readers.

My Blogging Resolutions for 2015

Happy New Year!!! Wow! It's another year and it is time for self-reflection and setting goals for a better year. It is the time for making changes to practices that either didn't work well or simply just was not used. For the past year blogging for me was not a major priority because of the countless assignments for my Masters Degree in Education. Well, I thought about my lack of vigor and decided that for this new year 2015 I am going to make a greater effort to blog, at least once a month, until I am finished studying come July. No more product promos (fewer :)) no more blog lags! Purely helpful teaching ideas and meaningful content! I'm going to make it a monthly feature with pictures of my day-to-day experiences as a Caribbean teacher. I just started exploring more of the social media like Twitter and Instagram, so I know that I am on the right path.

So have you thought about your own priorities and planned a way of getting things done a little better this time around? You just need to shuffle and juggle your time, at least for the first month or so before you can get things settled. Good luck!!:)
