Teacher Feature Tuesdays: Heather from My Life At The Pencil Sharpener!

Congrats to Heather from My Life At The Pencil Sharpner for being the Teacher Feature of the week. I loved her theme (because I did spend my teaching life at the pencil sharpener, thinking about pencils, picking up pencils, hating pencils, etc) and the great advice that she has for new TPTers and teachers.

1. How long have you been TPT'ing?

I have been on TpT for just over a year as a seller. As a buyer I have been on TpT for at least 5 years! I love this community!

2. What's is your most helpful advice for new TPTers?

My most helpful advice for new TpT sellers is to begin to network with other sellers and members of the TpT community on the forum. They have so much knowledge and are so helpful! I have learned so much from experienced sellers who are kind enough to share their wisdom!

3. What is your most helpful advice for beginning teachers?

My best advice for beginner teachers would be to always remember why you decided to become a teacher. There will be plenty of rough days, but it is important to focus on the positive. I always keep a complimentary note or two from parents or students in my top desk drawer. When I am having a bad day I just open the drawer and read this note. I am instantly reminded of why our jobs are so important!

Any additional tips?

Don't be afraid to look to others for lesson plan ideas and resources. There are only so many hours in a day so plan what you feel most confident in and don't hesitate to look for ideas from others on great sites such as TpT and other teacher blogs!

Product Feature

I love anything detective or mystery related! This unit about mystery word problems looks absolutely fantastic! It focuses on multiplication, division and multi-step problems that students need to master!
