Once again, I'm pausing from life's chaos to be still and reflective.
I'm thankful to have a job that I love (most of the time). Yes, grading on my weekends is irritating, but it's what I signed up for. Plus I'm great at multi-tasking!
I'm thankful for technology. I'm able to easily share pictures of our classroom with parents, thanks to our class weebly. It's password protected for my students' privacy.
I'm thankful for B's support in my dreams.
Last summer, I decided to put some of my products on Teachers Pay Teachers (TpT). I'd spent countless hours making things for my classroom, so I figured I'd share with other teachers. I have free products, but most are paid. I spent hours making things so I don't think it's unreasonable to charge. Most items are priced at less than a quarter a page, which comes out to pennies per hour of work time. However, it's been a successful endeavor. As of posting time, I've already sold about thirty products this month alone! Plus many fellow educators find the products incredibly useful, so I'm pleased students all around the country are getting to play the games my students also love. You can check out my shop here!
I recently fell in love with Jamberry wraps and decided to be an independent consultant.
They last for weeks, I can apply them at home when I want to take a break from grading, and they're way cheaper than the salon! There are over 300 styles available and are always buy 3, get 1 free online! Shop at: avice.jamberrynails.net!
I love having cute nails and helping others have them too :)
I'm also thankful my grading can be done in chunks and that my football game is on TV today!
