I was so happy to be part of the meet up team this year and there was quite a bit to do because of the MAJOR GENEROSITY of some absolutely incredible, teaching loving peeps! There were gifts and prizes galore from our sponsors!
500 teachers laughing, sipping, and talking in one conference room is LOUD people! It was crazy and fun and absolutely amazing to meet so many online friends in real life! I only wish I took more pictures but I did get a few of these AMAZING women who I am very fortunate and honored to call friends.
1My inspiring friend Rachelle from What the Teacher Wants.
2 My fabulous and dear friend Miss Kindergarten Hadar, Teacher Idea Factory’s hilarious and amazing Kelly, and the adorable Stephanie from Falling into First.
3 Kindergarten Crayons’ Fran ALWAYS has my back and is like my own personal cheerleader (I need to take her everywhere)
4 The super cute and sweet Jennifer from Rowdy in First Grade is flanked on each side by my amazing and close friends Christy and Tammy from Fluttering Through First Grade.
5 Vicky from Teaching and Much Moore lives so close by – but we still only see each other on rare occasions!
6 I cannot begin to tell you how absolutely sweet and genuine Amy from TpT is. She truly represents that company and their dedication to teachers. I was so thrilled to meet her.
7 Cara (The First Grade Parade), Amanda (One Extra Degree), Michelle (Fabulous in First) and I squeezed into a picture while Rachelle was drawing winner’s names. These girls are just ridiculously beautiful!
