Yesterday afternoon I finished packing up, moving out, and left my classroom ready to go for its next teacher with her own little darlings to begin their learning! I drove away from my school without turning back...I love my little ones and all, but a little time to recharge during a track out is always welcome! The joys of a year round teaching schedule.
My first act as a "free" teacher, ready to roam my city was to...head to Barnes and Noble for its night to honor educators. Gosh, it does sound dorky to admit. I spent some time getting to chat with other teachers and the B&N spokesperson who was just so friendly and sweet! Teachers were able to collect a few freebies, and I know my little babes will be excited to check them out when we return to school! Also, all county teachers were able to enter a little drawing to win a Nook Color.
I filled out my paper slip, and even asked for a new one (after of course discarding the first!) when I worried that my handwriting wasn't neat enough on my original slip...I wanted to make sure they could read my contact information right?!
Well what do you know, today I was driving to a fabric outlet store to shop for new drapery fabric to stitch over my break when I got a phone call from the friendly lady at B&N!! All I could think about was "Thank goodness I opted to rewrite my slip with my neatest handwriting!" This is such a teachable moment!
In honor of my good fortune, I would like to pass on the "I'm SO lucky" feeling! Upon reaching 100 followers I will give away a freebie package to 3 WINNERS using the random number generator! The package will include an assortment of units from my tpt store.
