Finally Fourth: A Teachers Pay Teachers Store

I've discovered I'm a Type B teacher. I wrote a post about this long ago.

The thought jumped back into my head when a former coworker posted another Type B teacher article that really made me relate.

This is applicable, currently, because I've been working on a Teachers Pay Teachers store for the last 9 or 10 months, and I just named it last week. I still need a good profile picture.

Type B, for sure.

I'm also positive that I would be head over heels diving into this type of project in a way that I stay up all night perfecting resources and writing descriptions and uploading fonts and researching better ways to do it all...if I were Type A.

Instead, I started created resources last fall, at night, between baby feedings, when I should've been asleep.

I used Powerpoint and Google Docs and my PicMonkey membership and free downloaded fonts to create better versions (i.e. cuter versions) of resources I not only used in my actual classroom, but relied on day to day.

I still have a drawer of papers and resources I plan on re-making and uploading and selling. Guess how many I've created since we've been in Pittsburgh?

One. In 7 months.

Definitely Type B.

Currently, I'm working on writing PDFs of ideas. I'm giving them away for free, actually.

I am 100% more concerned with getting my ideas out onto the internet and trying to help other teachers than I am with making money. I've written a lot of blog posts about teaching as well, if you're interested. So most of my resources, unless I spent hours creating from scratch and they're large files, are free.

If you are a teacher getting ready to start the school year, the one thing you absolutely must have is a Beginning of the Year Packet. They're all over the internet, so you can find them just about anywhere. This is the version I used for the last several years.
