Pam said...

Congratulations to you! You are the MOST GIVING PERSON! I know that many items are sold on TPT and I understand teachers needing that extra money. I have been there too! On the flip side, teachers do not have much money with which to purchase items and you share so freely! Thank you for your willingness to give to others and your loving spirit for fellow teachers. Please keep up the great work. I am now retired, but I taught Kindergarten for 34 years. I wish you had been around then. You inspire and help greatly!!!
Keep up the great work!!!!

sas19621 said...

Fran , thanks so much for sharing those amazing resources with us. Whilst I totally understand people who sell their resources on TPT etc I am so glad that you have chosen not to do this.You have the most giving nature. As an experienced Kindergarten teacher you have re-energised my teaching practice and made me think about what and how I am teaching, all the way over here in Australia.
