My Current Obsession!


Have you heard of Teachers Pay Teachers? If you haven’t then let me introduce you!
TeachersPayTeachers is the world’s first open marketplace
where teachers buy and sell original teaching materials.
TpT’s mission is to empower teachers by bringing together those who create curricula with those who are seeking fresh new approaches in the classroom. Teachers work hard and deserve extra compensation for all those hours spent lesson planning.
Newer teachers and those looking for ideas can save time and leap ahead in competency by learning from veterans.
We strongly believe that the ensuing exchange lifts all boats and leads to the better sharing of best practices.
In the end everyone wins, especially our students.
You can join as a buyer or seller or both to make your teaching career even more rewarding. We call it Free Market Merit Pay for Teachers. Click on the apple and check it out! You will be glad you did!

A few my personal FAVORITES!!!
