Start your own TpT store

I started my TpT store a few years ago, but haven’t really put a lot of effort on it. Shame on me!

I signed as a Premium Seller almost a year ago and I have seen the rewards it brings. I spend a lot of money buying things from awesome sellers, so now that I am making money from my products I don’t feel super bad fro spending that much.

I am in the process of improving myself, my products and taking my TpT store more seriously. I read a post by Erica Bohrer and it has helped me to better understand what I need to do. It’s a must read if you want to get started on TpT. Here’s the link: http://ericabohrer.blogspot.mx/2014/02/getting-started-on-tpt.html

It’s a win win situation. I encourage you to start right now and you can later encourage your friends.

As bilingual educators we need more bilingual authors and sharing our products on TpT is the best way to build a stronger bilingual community.

Saying goodbye

Saying goodbye is never easy.

I have been working for almost 8 years at the same school. I have seen several administrators coming and leaving, many teachers, and a lot of kiddos.

I am saying goodbye to my coworkers, GREAT FRIENDS, my students, my beautiful school and the city where I lived for several years.

I can’t help but cry, yes I am happy and excited for the new things that may come, but I am also sad because I don’t know when I am going to say hello to my JISD friends again.

Here are two quotes that resume how I feel right now.

How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard. ~Carol Sobieski and Thomas Meehan, Annie

Why can’t we get all the people together in the world that we really like and then just stay together? I guess that wouldn’t work. Someone would leave. Someone always leaves. Then we would have to say good-bye. I hate good-byes. I know what I need. I need more hellos. ~Charles M. Schulz

And here’s how 5 years of teaching looks like. I still have some more things in the classroom that I need to bring home.


Do you already have plans for the summer?

Preparándome para el próximo ciclo escolar

Así es, aún no termina este ciclo y yo ya estoy pensando en el que vendrá.

Lo peor del caso es que aún no sé en que escuela o que grado estaré enseñando, tal vez mañana me tengan noticias.

Aún así nunca es demasiado temprano para empezar a organizarte y crear cositas.

Aquí les dejo unos pósters de figuras geométricas y colores que he creado hoy. Espero les gusten y sean de utilidad, si quisieran personalizarlos con el borde de otro color, ¡no  duden en preguntar!
