As you can tell, this has been a busy school year for me so far. It have been having trouble finding time to write to you. Well, part of it is time. The other part is mind space. Because I have been working on some teaching projects and some stuff here at home, I haven’t had a lot of creative, mental space to come up with ideas of things to write here.
And this is where you can help.
I need to know how your school year is going. What is going well? What is not going well? What kind of encouragement and inspiration would you like to see here? Also, look at some of my older posts and let me know what kind of posts you like the most here. Quick encouragement? Longer inspirational? Creative picture notes? Theme song posts? Something else? Please give me some feedback on this in the comments here or email me. THANKS!
I am also considering bringing in some co-bloggers. Do you have a blog? Have you been thinking about blogging? Would you like to guest post here at some point? Right now I am just looking for some guest-bloggers, but there is the possibility of a regular day here at Dear Teacher/Love Teacher…maybe. I really want this blog to be helpful to teachers…to do that, I think I need some help. If you are interested, email me and we can talk more about the kind of posts I am looking for. Thanks!
Last but not least, I teased some FREE and CHEAP stuff in the title (and in the picture). As you have either read about here or have seen in the sidebar, there is a Dear Teacher/Love Teacher Teachers Pay Teachers Store. There are mostly resources there to promote growth-mindset and positivity in your classroom (and a really cool math board game that I worked on for most of the summer called MAD MAD MATH MONEY). I have decided to break the norms there on TpT and make the resources as cheap as I possibly can. Few of the products are now free and the rest are $3 or less. The only reason I am charging at all is because of the time spent making the resources and money put in (software costs, mostly). Would you please check out the store and share about it? Thanks! You rock!
Thank you for using this site and all of the feedback you have given me via the comments or social media!
I close with a reminder of how awesome you are. You really are an amazing teacher. I know some days are rougher than others, but don’t lose sight of the fact that you are making a difference. You rock! Keep on teaching, Teacher!
PS…Please share this post! Thanks. I would really love to get feedback from teachers all over.
