When I first heard about this website my initial reaction was to scoff in the general direction and belligerently ask “well why can’t people just do their own work.” I think that was probably the ambitious snob within me who shows herself every so often. The truth is that as educators we ideally should be willingly and freely helping each other. We also should ideally be paid a whole lot more — which is a whole ‘nother conversation — but selling resources can be a great supplement to our income.
My attitude quickly changed when my good friend Ms. Gram at Art With Ms. Gram.com informed me that she has made a very hefty amount of money through her TpT store. (Which is amazing by the way) I attended a workshop she presented on the topic at GAEA last weekend and learned some tricks and tips to get started (like how to put in those little oval face kids and the cutesy typefaces). Now, I don’t know if I will make a cool million like this go getter but I am officially on board the TpT train. Please check out my store which I will be updating whenever I get a chance and remember that even though I am selling “products” I will also give them and any of my other “trade secrets” away. . . all you have to do is ask! I really believe that sharing is caring, it’s not just something to tell the kiddos!
