That's right--I must be in a dream! Creative Teaching Press has asked me to be a contributor to their blog Inspired in Style. What?!!!!!! Melanie Rabulsky has been such an inspiration to me. She is so creative and kind, I'm just a little starstruck.
When they asked me I just couldn't believe it. I thought I was being punked--but really what would Ashton Kutcher want with a first grade teacher? So, I slowly allowed my self to believe it.
In my head I was saying "Are you kidding me? Are you sure? Really?"
How did this all start? you must be thinking it...
It all started this summer when I wrote a little blog post about some items I had purchased for my classroom. Chevron borders, Dots on turquoise items, awards, stickers and some other fun stuff. You can read about that here.
I guess, Heather from CTP found my post and sent me an email. It was as simple as that. "We liked your post" she said "We would like to work with you." Wow, of course-YES!!!!-Who would say no?
You can read my first post for Inspired in style Here. It's about how I use the Calendar and other materials, along with the challenges I had with it in my own classroom. Hopefully, you all like it and can use some of the ideas in your own classrooms.
I feel so unbelievably blessed with this new opportunity. The Lord works in mysterious ways is a saying I've heard and said over the course of my life. 2 years ago, I never would have thought this was apart of the plan. I feel humbled and honored at the same time--if that is possible. I know God has a purpose for my life and I give him all the honor and the glory for His blessings.
