We met Theresa from Theresa's Teaching Tidbits. She's a second grade teacher with a ton of passion for teaching and her authoring craft. She's got some activities to help students stay positive all year round, and she also has some fun number line addition activities. It was so exciting doing a little live editing right there on the website and watching her "Number Line Addition: Hopping Along the Number Line" move up the search ranks. It's such a fun activity and needs to have more teachers finding it.
We met Emily Richardson. She works with some awesome kids as a school-based speech language therapist. She tries to incorporate what the students are learning in their classrooms in her therapy room to help develop their speech and reinforce what they are learning. She knows her stuff. It was fun to hear her connect concepts we were talking about with her specialty. Her descriptive language activity looks so cute and seems like it'd be a lot of fun!
And we met Pam from Rockin Resources. She's a super passionate 4th grade teacher who is a resident expert on writing. She has some really great ideas for helping students engage in the writing process. Her Interactive Notebook bundle for 4th grade looks pretty doggone awesome and lots of other teachers seem to agree (Just look at the ratings!). Her husband Dean came too, and it was a lot of fun talking with him about strategies for Pinterest and other social media marketing. It seems he's sort of a guru. Can't wait to collaborate with him more in upcoming months!
We all thought it'd be super fun to meet up once a month and talk shop and life (we'll continue meeting up with them once we move there in the summer after the TpT conference in July). If you're in the Charlotte area, connect up with us and join the fun and learning. Because we're always learning, right?! :)
