Get Ready For It! Going Back With a MAJOR Giveaway!

I know that some of you have already headed back to the classroom this week. Here in PEI, we don’t begin until September. Whether you’ve started back this week or still have another few weeks left to enjoy, I’m pretty sure that you’ll all be psyched to win some great goodies for your classrooms!

It’s almost time for my annual Back To School Giveaway! I thought that I’d give you a little sneak peek, so that you know what’s up for grabs!

SO…..

I have Shopping Sprees to give away in 20 different  TPT Stores (including my own) an awesome bag from Thirty-One, FOUR Duo Binders, a $75 gift certificate to WiseDecor, a $25 gift certificate to Black Rafter Soap Works,  and a $10 Starbucks gift certificate all to give away to you guys! Wow!

It’s going to be great and I’m very excited to be able to get to provide all of you awesome teachers with the opportunity to win some goodies for yourself. You deserve it!

In case you’re unfamiliar with some of the companies mentioned above…

Thirty-One provides fantastic options for school and lunch bags, purses and totes, organizers etc. in a wide variety of styles and colors. They are offering a small organizing tote for the giveaway!

Duo Binders are a wonderful option for teachers or students to stay organized. They are essentially a binder, with a portfolio included to stash away single sheets. Again, a wide variety of styles and colors are available. They’re also perfect to use as sub binders.

WiseDecor has generously offered a $75 gift certificate for this giveaway which is amazing! They offer wall word decals for all occasions, but they have some specifically appropriate for use in the classroom. I have one for my room that will go right above my new SMARTBoard:

 if you can dream it

Finally, Black Rafter Soap Works has graciously donated a $25 gift certificate in their Etsy Shop, because they know that we deserve a little pampering – especially at this time of year! What will you choose: Hand made soaps, lip balm or the natural sugar scrub?

Ahhh…Professional Development – Gotta Love It!

Okay, you’re about to learn to what extent of nerd I am – if you didn’t already know. I love PD. I know, I know….what a geek! But you know what? I’m 30 and I can be a geek if I want to!

There’s something about professional development that makes me feel…. well…like a professional! Now,

 

I’m not talking about the “jumping through hoops” or “developing for the sake of developing” kind of PD. I’m talking about the really good stuff! New and inspiring ideas, fresh perspectives, and practical strategies that make me want run to my classroom to show my students. THAT’S the kind of PD I love.

 We have our 2 day Teachers’ Convention tomorrow and Friday. Every teacher in the province will be there – all 1500 of us, all under one roof. I think that’s so cool! No other province in Canada can house all of its teachers in one ballroom all at the same time, but because we’re small – we can! I love the conversations and connections, the lunch time chat (not having to shovel my food before duty) and feeling like I belong. I only ever wanted to be a teacher and our Annual Convention reaffirms my chosen life-path and career (although my students do that most days, too).

Oh, and one of my teacher-friends and I have a room booked in the hotel where the convention is being held, which means some well deserved ME time in the evening. So, that’s a bonus! All in all, I’m pretty excited about the next two days.

So tell me, who else out there is a “closet PD lover”? I promise I won’t tell;)
