1,000 TPT Followers Giveaway



Hi friends,

I am here with my biggest giveaway ever!

About 3 years ago, my mentor teacher, Kelly Anne-Appleslices convinced me to sell something on TeachersPayTeachers. I was pretty unconvinced at first…. and you should have seen the look I gave her when she told me about blogging. She told me I would understand someday. I honestly think I thought she was completely nuts. HA!  I owe so much of my journey to Kelly. She changed my life as a person, as a teacher, as a friend, and as a teacherpreneur.

Kelly inspires me and pushes me even when she doesn't realize {she doesn't know that I'm doing any of this} which is why she is part of my giveaway. When you get to the Rafflecopter you will get a chance to see all of her amazingness!

On a similar note, I can't thank YOU all enough for how much you have changed my life… as a person, a teacher, a friend, and teacherpreneur. That's the reason for this giveaway. It's a BIG THANK YOU for how much you all inspire me. My life has changed so much in the last three years, but especially in the last year, because of all of you!

I also thought this was a perfect time to make an announcement about what I will be teaching next year….. Drum Roll…. I will be teaching 7th and 8th grade ELA! Agh!

I honestly never thought I could go higher than 6th, but I honestly think I was destined to teach middle school… and just didn't know it until now! I am a super big believer in there always being a bigger plan and it ALWAYS works out like it is supposed {true story… I applied for kindergarten because I wanted to be at this school, no matter what grade, and then was offered 7th and 8th} See always like it's supposed to. I will be moving schools and districts again, but I am so excited to be at a school that honestly feels like my home again <3.

Anyways, THANK YOU again…. and here is what you can win!

For this giveaway, I wanted to give away some other things that have inspired me over the last three years! Holes, Ungifted, Freak the Mighty, and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone have all had an impact on my teaching in the last three years. I have others but I had to pick just a few!

Kelly, of course also showed me that inspiration comes from a pretty planner and flair pens, so I'm giving away an Erin Condren Life Planner and a 12-pack of flair pens.

Lastly, this has all been possible because of TeachersPayTeachers, so the winner also receive a $25.00 gift card to TeachersPayTeachers.

WHEW!

GOOD LUCK and MUAH!

Martina!

  1. Congratulations on the big move to a school that feels like home! Nothing is better then finding your "forever school"! I made a move to my forever school last year and after seven years in Kindergarten moved to first. I've been asked to move to third grade reading and writing next year! Scary but exciting and ready for the challenge of my first time in secondary!
