I Dreaded My Third Period Class
It was cold and blustery outside, one of those days you just wanted to stay under the covers, but truth be told, I immediately thought about how I dreaded my third period class, I so wanted to turn over and forget about it for a while. I knew I had to face it, so I begrudgingly got out of bed. Alas, it was only hump day, and I had a busy schedule, so I dragged myself out of bed, had my cup of coffee and a piece of toast.

The Beauty of Math Patterns

Some people say mathematics is the science of patterns which I think is a pretty accurate description. Not only do patterns take on many forms, but they occur in every part of mathematics. But then again patterns occur in other disciplines as well. They can be sequential, spatial, temporal, and even linguistic. Discover more about pattern in this blog post.

Attitude of Gratitude
Attitude of Gratitude: Things I'm Thankful For

 

I woke up in a funk the other morning so I pulled the covers over my head trying to go back to sleep.  As I began to doze, my dog stuck her head under the sheet and I felt her cold nose on my leg. I knew that trying to stay in bed was futile, so I threw on some clothes and took her outside feeling frustrated and annoyed. As we began walking, the pain in my knee and heel started to subside and the phrase, attitude of gratitude came into my head as I realized how lucky I am to be able to walk, others aren’t so fortunate.

Multiple Ways to Multiply

Five Assumptions about Distance Learning-Why it’s Not Working for Every Child!

By Vicki Rauch of Scipi

My husband and I have taught together for over 80 years. We continue to do so because we love what we do; however, we are very disturbed by the terms Virtual Learning or Distance Learning or On-Line Learning. Now don’t get the idea that because we are “old”, we don’t or can’t use technology. Technology is part of our lives, especially in our teaching, but when we hear Distance Learning, many people make assumptions that simply aren’t true.

Summer is the time for fun, fun, fun! School is out no more hitting the books.

“I joined The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative about a year and a half ago on a whim.  I loved TpT from the start, but I needed some connections…something beyond the forums.  I got the membership on sale that day thinking I would try it out and just see how things go.  I never looked back.  Membership in this group has helped me break free of my comfort zones and take my store to the next level.  The group members are supportive, and Vicky is always available for individual help and guidance.  I feel like I have my own TpT personal trainer!  Although my original purpose for joining this group was to learn some serious marketing strategies, it has turned out to be so much more.  I now collaborate with teachers from all over the country!  Some of us even met in person in Vegas and Orlando.  Not only have I improved my TpT marketing, but I have also made friends for life!  If you have any questions, feel free to email me at monicam8084@gmail.com.  I can earn a referral credit if you join and mention my name (Monica) and store Fourth Grade Frenzy which is not required, but appreciated!” -Monica https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Fourth-Grade-Frenzy


“Since joining, I can say that this group has really made the HUGE TpT community feel smaller and more reachable.  There is so much shared marketing knowledge, so many dedicated marketing groups that you can join, and Vicky has been such a great help with any and all questions I have had.  I love being my own boss, but sometimes I can lose track of how to spend my time.  The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative has helped me focus the time I spend marketing, and keep my marketing goals on track.

“When I started selling on TpT in May of 2013, until I joined TBOTEMC this August, my total sales were $3,157.45. That’s for 15 months. I joined TBOTEMC August 5th of this year, just 3 months ago. In those 3 months I’ve sold $9,014.46!!!” -Leah Popinski http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Leah-Popinski

“I started TpT in May of 2014 and decided to become a member of TBOTEMC on February 28, 2015. Prior to joining, I had never had a month in which I had at least one sale every day. However, in both March and April (today is only May 1st), I had at least one (and often multiple) sales every day! I am ecstatic – and this toward the end of the school year! I am so thankful for the advice, support, and community this group provides.”  – Ashley https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/One-Step-Closer-Teaching

“TBOTEMC offers  Collegiality Lessons Activities Student Success Seller Success
Because of TBOTEMC, I reached my $20,000.00 milestone on TpT much sooner than I expected. I first joined TBOTE to gain exposure for my TpT products and my blog http://teachitwrite.blogspot.com/ – which, I’m thrilled to say, definitely happened. The Social Media Partners concept is a win-win for TpT sellers and is a marketing treasure. Victoria Leon goes out of her way to help her members to increase their selling potential.” ~Connie  http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Connie 

“I am at the beginning of an amazing journey! I recently joined TBOTEMC, and I am amazed at the opportunities in front of me. This cooperative group works together to achieve everyone’s success. I have only begun to use the extensive amount of resources available to me and can already note increases in followers and sales. Vicky is amazing and will support you in every way. You took a huge step when you became a seller at Teachers Pay Teachers. Join TBOTEMC and jump to the next level!” -Monica Fourth Grade Frenzy https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Fourth-Grade-Frenzy 

“The best part about TBOTEMC is Vicky herself. She is SO knowledgeable, enthusiastic and goes out of her way to help members. She truly embodies the value of collaboration.Through TBOTEMC, I’ve had more exposure to my blog & TpT store. It’s amazing to see what other TpT members are creating, teaching, and pinning! My Pinterest followers have grown due to TBOTEMC!” -Tried and True Teaching Tools https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Tried-And-True-Teaching-Tools

“I started selling at TpT in January of 2013 and, without much marketing, made steady progress and managed to reach the first milestone in October of 2014. After realizing the potential of this business, I decided that I MUST add marketing to my plan if I wanted to continue to rise in the marketplace to the next level. That is when I discovered Vicky’s product. With the guidance of this program, I have seen increases in all areas of my business and I have begun to enjoy the benefits of working with others for the common goal of increasing TpT awareness in the world marketplace. I highly recommend adding this to your own hard work and see where it can take you.” -Kathryn Garcia @ Made For Learning http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Kathryn-Garcia


“Since joining The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative, my sales have increased by 20%. I also think the collaborative boards are top notch in that only quality items are posted. As for other members of The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative, they are outstanding educators from whom you can learn from no matter how long you have been teaching.” -Vicky Scipi on TPT http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Scipi

“I am just a beginner at TBOTEMC (as well as TPT), but am so excited already. MY NUMBER OF FOLLOWERS HAS ALREADY GROWN! I have found Vicky so very helpful, putting up with my many questions and helping me get started. Pinning from other members helps your exposure, and the interaction with other members teaches you so much. The enthusiasm of another member, Julie Jackson, along with Vicky, has made me want to spend every minute this summer improving my store and growing with this new adventure.”  Thanks,  Laurie Carpenter http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Art-Action-Laurie-Carpenter

“I am so grateful for encountering TBOTEMC – The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative! While others ignored my request to join their collaborative Pinterest boards or unfollowed me – Vicky Leon was so kind to take me under her wing and act as a mentor and befriend a stranger. I have been fortunate to be part of an organization that provides a cooperative of many teachers who support each other. I am so grateful for TBOTEMC!” -TheBeezyTeacher http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Thebeezyteacher

Dear Vicky,
I just wanted to share how TBOTEMC  is changing my life – I have attached my latest data. I did not post this to boast, only to show you the positive impact TBOTEMC is having on my success.  In the last eight months, I have made more than I make in a year teaching in the classroom.   I love teaching, but I love creating resources just as much! 
Feel free to use the data with others to help encourage others to join.
I am not sure thank you will ever be enough for how you and TpT have changed my life.  With you and TBOTEMC, I am doing things I only previous dreamed of doing.
I always loved creating educational resources, but I never dreamed I could have financial success as a teacher.  
Thank you! Thank You! THANK YOU!
