Letters from a Blogging Teacher

Jul 30, 2014

 Is anyone else SUPER behind on their blog reading??  Grrrr....I am!!  I follow all these great blogs but time just is not my friend.  Okay, sorry.  Complaining will not make my time move slower or give me more time.  So, let's move on.
I was attempting to read through my Bloglovin' feed today, when I came upon this post:


Loved it!! It was just what I needed today.  I needed to reflect a little.

It has been a year since I started my TPT journey.  It has been two years since I started this great blogging journey.  It has been eleven years since I started the teaching journey that I am on.  And it has been about eight years since I started working with the amazing team that I am on right on.

I have a few things to say about all these journeys!

Dear readers,
I hope you have a great start to your school year.  I wish you lots and lots of great "Back to School" deals and steals!  And a year's worth of fantastic blog posts :)

Dear Maria,
It was your idea.  It is ALWAYS your ideas that get us going.  And I am so thankful for that.  I am thankful for the encouragement, the belief in me, and the balance that you remind me to have.  You have helped me find the writer in me.... I didn't even know it was in me.

Dear Bloggy friends (I hope you know who you are),
We have had the chance to get to know each other throughout these two years.  And I have enjoyed that so much!  I love learning from you, emailing with you, solving problems with you, and sharing with you.  Thank you for believing in me.  Thank you so much for believing in me.

Dear Meijer,
I really miss your Cinnamon Hazelnut coffee.  But your French Vanilla coffee and bags of milk chocolate chips help get me through late nights and rough days!  Keep up the good work :)

Dear Karen,
You are my mentor.  You have always been my mentor.  You will always be mentor.  I learn from you every day of my career.  And I am so honored to be your daily student.

Dear husband,
Mmmmmm.....the late night cookies and cream ice cream hits the spot every time!

Dear Jenny,
Thanks for the late night burgers, the long conversations, and the thrift store shopping.  You came into my life right when I needed you :)

Dear sisters,
