It's my Blogging Birthday! Birthday Packet Freebie and a Laminator Give Away


Geez, a year of blogging has passed and I've had a blast!  A year ago at this time, I had no idea how much I was going to enjoy blogging and connecting with teachers from across the country.

I'm 62 years old and have been in the classroom for over 40 years. I've seen education swing from one approach to another, but never before have I seen such fabulous connections, teacher-to-teacher communication, sharing, and mass support of one another. 

Clearly, the internet, blogs, and social networks have been a great support to teachers, however they only really work because all of you work so hard, share so well, and are so dedicated to your students and the profession. 

I honor and thank you all of you from the bottom of my heart for your support, kindness, and acceptance. 

I am raffling off a laminator (to celebrate my blogging birthday) but I want to make sure everyone gets a "party favor" so I am giving away a "Classroom Birthday Packet".   Just click below to download it and be sure to enter to win the laminator. 


The packet contains
1) 13 letter flags to spell out "Happy Birthday"
2) 12 Birthday posters, one for each month of the year
3) 2 Birthday certificates, one for boys and one for girls

Just click below to download.

Purple Cows Hot and Cold Laminator, 13-Inch, with 50 Hot Pockets (3027)

  15. Thanks so much for the birthday package! Happy Blogging birthday. I am a new teacher just entering the profession, and all of the blogs, and support I see from everyone has definitely helped. I have no shortage of ideas of things I can teach, or how to teach units. Social media has completely helped in this area! I would be super stoked to win a laminator, since I work with students with autism, and we're opening up a new site. (I don't think there will be one there.) Thanks so much for the giveaway opportunity!
