Back To School with Stories and Songs in Second

Back To School with Stories and Songs in Second


Tomorrow is the first day of August my friends, and that is my signal for BACK-TO-SCHOOL thoughts to start!

As much as I would like the good times and road trips of Summer 2018 to continue, reality is setting in. I am so happy to have traveled in an RV to Canada to see old college friends, enjoyed a Cubs game at Wrigley Field, and spent a long weekend at a lake cottage with my family.  But it is time to get back to the business of being a teacher!


Stock up on resources for the 2018 school year with the Teachers Pay Teachers Back To School Sale! Shop August 1-2, 2018!

Four Years of Stories and Songs...

Four Years of Stories and Songs...



Welcome long, lost friends!


It has been five months since I posted here, but I am back to share a celebration and a sale with you!
 

Celebrate four years of blogging and creating for TpT with a Thanksgiving resource sale!


In honor of my four-year TpT and blog anniversary, all of my Thanksgiving resources are 20% off today through Wednesday! 


Celebrate four years of blogging and creating for TpT with a Thanksgiving resource sale!


Consider it my simple way of expressing my gratitude for your continued support and readership.  I will continue to cherish both in the days ahead as I undergo treatment for Hodgkins Lymphoma.  I was diagnosed three weeks ago, and will have my second chemo treatment this Friday.  So far, my side effects have been minimal and my attitude is positive.  I am currently on medical leave from school, and spend my days resting, reading, eating right, and watching Netflix!  I have tremendous support from my family, teaching colleagues, and friends.  #TeamJen has rallied in my time of need, and lifts my spirit. I feel exceptionally lucky and loved.


Celebrate four years of blogging and creating for TpT with a Thanksgiving resource sale!


I am not sure how much energy I will have to create or blog in the months ahead, but know that I am with you all in spirit as you continue to do the good work in your classrooms and serve the children entrusted to your care.

As always, thank you for sharing my stories and songs.  Continue to hold both close to your heart, and share their magic.

by Henry  & Felice Mancini

Sometimes
Not often enough
We reflect upon those good things
And those thoughts always center around those we love
And I think about those people
Who mean so much to me
And for so many years have made me so very happy
And I count the times I have forgotten to say
THANK YOU
And just how much I love them


Celebrate four years of blogging and creating for TpT with a Thanksgiving resource sale!



Peace,
