a Word from the (kid) President…and Pinterest Contest

Good morning, Teachers!

I hope your week is going well.  Thank you to all of you who have commented through the blog and Edmodo to let me know what the posts here mean to you.  Really!  It keeps me motivated to find the time to post.  I truly appreciate it!

Okay, so I am a little late.  Yesterday I finally saw the Kid President message to students and teachers…sad part is, I was one of the Twitter teachers constantly hounding them to do one!  It is a great little message!  I waited until this morning to share, because I figured it would make a great mid-week, Wednesday morning message.  The way I am dragging this morning, I think I made a good choice.  🙂

Without further ado…

As a science teacher, I love his science lesson!

“You’re here.  You take up space.  You MATTER.  It’s just science, man”

So awesome!

I also loved when he said:

“We can all be awful sometimes, but we can also be awesome.  It’s time to be more awesome.  And that’s what it’s time for.”

So, let’s do that today, Teachers.  Let’s be more awesome that awful.  It is time to be more awesome.  Let every one of us be more awesome today!

Dear Teacher/Love Teacher has embraced Pinterest!  To celebrate, I am going to kick off a Pinterest contest.  I don’t have much to give, but I thought about it what I can give, I think, is kind of cool.  The winner of the Pinterest Contest will get a forever coupon for the TeachersPayTeachers Store.  Anything on there now and in the future is yours for free…and I am working on some cool things (I think).  I will keep the winner posted when something new comes on the store, and he or she just has to let me know if they want it and I will email it.  Like I said, it is not much, but it is something!

Here is how the contest will work:

  • Step One: You have to be on Pinterest.
  • Step Two: Follow the Dear Teacher/Love Teacher Pinterest page.
  • Step Three: Create a Dear Teacher/Love Teacher Board.
  • Step Four: Pick your favorite three Dear Teacher/Love Teacher posts (or more) and pin them to the Board.
  • Step Five: Fill out the form below and in the “website” section, put the URL of your Dear Teacher/Love Teacher Board.

The contest ends on Tuesday, October 15th, and I will randomly pick a winner on Wednesday, October 16th.

Go, Pinterest!

  1. I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for all of your posts. I only recently found your blog (through Edmodo) and I just LOVE it. I start every morning with reading one of your blogs. If you haven’t gotten one up that day yet, I go back and read an archived one. Thank you for the inspiration.
