I was a little ambitious when I thought I could start my first year teaching at a new school, start blogging, and open a TPT store at the same time. Needless to say I was pulling my hair out and had to shut 'er down.
Not only did I realize I was taking on too much with that, but also at school alone. I tried to do WAY too much, abandoned things that weren't working, began new project after new method after new strategy... and that's when I had to stop.
I simplified. I organized. I paused to take a look around. I saw what was working and what wasn't, I let go. And ever since then, life's been a little easier.
Cue the obnoxious squeals of happiness -- I can now put effort into my teaching blog and TPT store again! Welcome to Simply Schoolteacher. A reminder to myself and all my busy teacher friends to slow down and smell the flowers. :)
Here's a link to my TeachersPayTeachers store. I have lots of freebies and LOTS more to come!
