TeachersPayTeachers flock Together

It's hard to believe it has been almost a month since 60+ teacher pay teachers got together in Binghamton, NY! 

Our theme for the day was

I was so excited about this get together and I was not disappointed. It went beyond anything I could have imagined. I am still amazed at how much work these ladies put into this day!

Susan Kalkman of The Math Spot, Selma Dawani, Sherri Tyler of Literary Sherri, Ellen Weber of Brain Based Tasks for Upper Grades, Front Row: Mary Beth Brain Waves Instruction, Donna Tyler of Worth A Thousand Words, and Robyn McMaster of Brain Based Tasks for Upper Grades

The day started with a yummy breakfast donated by TPT's. We also got these cute bags filled with lots of goodies.

Jen Jones from Hello Literacy was gracious enough to come to our meet up and share some great tips. 

We did several roundtables sharing ideas and tips to improve our stores. My favorite one was when we shared our best seller. As we passed them around the table of 5-6 sellers, we talked about what made a great product. I loved hearing everyone's ideas. 

Names were drawn throughout the day for giveaway prizes. There were enough prizes so that everyone got one. These were not just your ordinary prizes either.  The table was filled.

I won the cutest tote bag and t-shirt donated by Lauri Wolfe at The Class Clown! I started using the bag as soon as I got back home. I love it!

 I also participated in the Teacher Tool Exchange. To be a part of it, all you needed to do was purchase one of your favorite teacher tools. Then put it in a gift bag and tell what you love about it.

Out of all of these gift bags I chose the one from Michele at Triple the Love in Grade 1. The tag on my bag said the gift "will make you smile" Michele, you were so right!

My kiddos love SCENTED MARKERS!!!! Thank you Michele!!!

Overall, it was a fabulous day with fabulous people! I met 60+ new friends that have already shared so much with me!

Thank You!!!!!    Thank You!!!!!    Thank You!!!!
