So Much to Learn

It's true what they say. "You'll never know what you can do until you try." A few weeks ago, just the sight of HTML code made me break out in a cold sweat. Tonight, I taught myself how to make a minor HTML code edit so I could link the image below to the first product I posted on teacherspayteachers.com.  It took a few tries and I'm still not sure exactly what I did, but I'm happy to report the link works.

Each time I figure out a small task like this, I experience an intense feeling of personal satisfaction. All of this blogging and such, has been a long time coming. I've been looking at other teachers' blogs for a long time now, wishing I had one of my own. Now, I do!

The whole concept of selling products on teacherspayteachers has also had my attention for some time. I can't tell you how many times a Google search has taken me to the site and I've thought to myself, I should be doing this myself. Now, I am! I know I still have a tremendous amount to learn before I become the next Deanna Jump, but every journey has to start with a first step and this is mine.

(In case you're wondering who Deanna Jump is, she's a first grade teacher in Macon, Georgia who also happens to be the first teacher to make a million dollars selling teaching products on teacherspayteachers.com. )

Check out this project packet in time for President's Day. It's a new twist on the traditional president report. I think your students will love it. I know mine did.
