Thank You!

I feel like I have been MIA lately.  September was filled with learning.  Students learning new routines, a new school, and most of all making new friends.  For me, I was learning not only about my new students, new families, and my new team, I was learning about myself as a teacher.

I have been teaching the same grade for 10 years, and love it!  Each year, I re-evaluate my curriculum, my teaching, and my materials.  But this year was different.  When I began teaching, I was all about hands on, play-based learning, after all they are 5!  Once our state adopted the CCSS, I became more standards driven.  This change made me loose my play-based style, and instead I became so focused on "looking" more academic.  I had lost my fun, and to be completely honest, lost my drive to teach.  

How did I get it back?  How did I get my drive back?

In one word, YOU!  I was lost, and I was stuck.  I joined TPT as a way to share my ideas and products, but most of all, I joined to be apart of a collaborative group.  I in turn, started a blog and found a group of teachers that is open to new ideas and is willing to share new ideas.  Because of this community, because of you, I am having a blast this year in Kindergarten!

As a way to say thank you, I will be holding a 20% off sale from October 14 {2015} through October 16 {2015}.

I hope you are all having an amazing year!  If you are feeling "stuck," don't worry!  Find your group, find others that will lift you up!
