Five for Friday! (June 20th)

It has been one exciting week for this almost teacher! It is time to link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five For Friday!

  Yesterday I received my official offer of employment from my school district!!! That means that I am only a couple of signatures and about $230 away from being a real teacher! A REAL TEACHER. I am beyond excited! Oh yeah, I am also waiting for UNLV to confer my degree...must call UNLV.
 I am officially up and running on tpt! I have been open for 4 days now and have 7 products listed, 5 of which are free. I am surprised with the amount of downloads I have received so far! I even have 2 followers! I just wish someone would rate my items so I know if I'm terrible...ha

I purchased the super cute clipart from Krista Wallden at Creative clips. She has such cute stuff! I also got an amazing starter pack of backgrounds and boarders from Erin Cobb at Lovin Lit. It was an amazing value, I couldn't pass it up!

 One of my oldest and dearest friends convinced me to plan a trip to see her where she's stationed in northern Nevada. I have never really planned a trip just to go see someone before. We never had the means to travel growing up. Also, my mom hates traveling and thinks it's a waste of money. I, on the other hand, am waaaay excited to see the world once I start teaching! Fallon, here I come!
Summer time is wearing my kitten out! He isn't used to love all the time!

I had an amazing week! How was yours?


  1. Congratulations on becoming a teacher! I loved that feeling. I was so excited to get my own classroom. Don't forget to enjoy yourself. It can be really overwhelming the first year you teach. :)

  2. Yay for starting on TPT! Good luck!

  3. I've gone and put some feedback in for ya!! I'm just starting out too, and know how precious that feedback can be!
    I didn't put it on TPT, but one thing I would suggest is finding some cute free commercial use fonts (check out Kevin and Amanda scrapbook fonts) as we teachers are suckers for things that look extra cute with fun fonts. You will soon find your favourites!!
    All the best with your store. I'm one of your (now three) followers, and I like what I see so far!!

    Learning to be awesome

  4. Hi there!!
    Congrats on the new title, and your TPT store. :) I would also love to travel all over, and when you said "Fallon here I come", did you mean Jimmy Fallon?? :) If so, I love love LOVE him!!!!!!!
