I am so Thankful for so many things. I am thankful that my 3 beautiful children are happy, healthy, and doing well in school. I always worry about what the school year will bring. Will they like their teachers? Will there be friends in their classes? Will they be both challenged and encouraged in their studies this year? Then open house happens, and my kiddos spend the rest of the night making up a song about how great their school is (no kidding – it was awesome).
I am thankful that my husband and I celebrated 11 years of marriage this year. We had a cook out in our backyard with family, and my children celebrated with sparklers. It was great and I look forward to many more anniversaries with him.
I am thankful that my little shop on Teachers Pay Teachers has helped me to impact the education of hundred of students outside of my classroom. At the Teachers Pay Teachers Conference this summer the CEO of TpT Adam Fried said some outrageous statistic (my jaw was too far on the floor to remember to write down the number) of how many classrooms, and how many students have been touched by the resources shared and sold through the TpT site. It was humbling to think of really. I am so grateful that other teachers out there have used my resources to reach and teach their students this year. I am honored.
My children know that the money earned through my Teachers Pay Teachers shop is to help them with their education. The other day when my cell phone app notification went off telling me I had made a sale my daughter said, “Mommy, was that college money?… Can we send them a thank you?” (She’s only 8, but wise beyond her years.) She was right, she wanted to say thank you, and honestly so do I.
I mentioned the idea of a “Feeling Thankful” celebration to a few other TpT Sellers I know, and we decided to have a giveaway to celebrate. The Raffle entry form is below and also on my Facebook fan page. You can enter on either form. Please share or tell a teacher you know and spread the word for this great giveaway. The winner will receive their treat from us (Over $90 in Prizes) on October 31, 2015. Good luck!
The prizes were donated by these amazing TpT authors. Clicking on their logos here will take you to their TpT Shops:
