Hello everyone!

It is Finally here!

Today I am linking with Laura from Where the Magic Happens, Krista from Teaching Momster, and Lisa from PAWsitively Teaching! I have joined forces once again with my bloggy friends to bring you the best, most amazing giveaway on this Labor Day weekend!
All of us have been thinking about  good ways in which to treat our readers and followers.   We thought hard, and I mean it! Really, really hard… and decided that  we can treat you to our best ideas to work smarter rather than harder… at school and home!
I know what it takes to be a great teacher, the stress, the time, the energy… I could go on and on! I also know that we crave time to ourselves and our families.

So here I go!


Have your students learn classroom routines and 

have a chart of job assignments.


Each evening, set aside at least one half of an hour 

for you time.  Use this time to do something relaxing.  This can

 be exercising, watching TV, or connecting with friends on 

social media - whatever relaxes you!

Here are my favorite relaxation products...


Start each morning in your classroom with learning.

Vegas TPT 2015

The TPT conference is Vegas was amazing!
I learned so much!

Here are a couple of insights -

1.  The staff at TPT is amazing, they've hired 50 new employees just this year!

2.  TPT is going international!  There were attendees from all over the world.  Sales are increasing globally!

3.  Working with other sellers and collaborating helps grow your store and TPT as a whole.

Here are some tips for your trip to TPT 2016 - 

1.  Stay at the hotel or a very close one.  Teachers were happy with the Venetian and Treasure Island across the street.  I stayed farther away to save money.  I will not do that again!

2.  Bring lip balm, moisturizer, and a water bottle.  It's essential to stay hydrated!

3.  Print out the handouts and bring them in a binder.  This makes life much easier and more organized.

4.  Having a computer or device at the conference is helpful.  There was free wi-fi.

5.  There is an app to help you find your way around the Venetian - it is huge!  

6.  Make buttons, business cards, a tote bag etc. with your store logo.

7.  Go with a friend and take opposite classes, share what you've learned.  There are so many great classes, you will not be able to do everything!

8.  Mingle and make new friends - I need to improve in this area!

The morning message visitors came with me to Vegas.  They also had a great time!  #TPTVisitors  #TPTVegas2015

Hope to see you at the conference in 2016!

The Story of My Logo

     My logo was designed to look like a tree made up of two people.  Each person has a different colored head.  The two colors represent two languages, English and Spanish.  The students at our school learn in these two languages.  The combination of the two colors is purple.  This is the color used to form the outside of the tree.  This symbolizes our students' bilingualism.
