Inspired by the blogging world!

I have spent days thinking about what I should write in my first blog and kept hitting a road block! I have just been so inspired by video clips I viewed on 2 blogs I have been following for some time now...and am so envious of the teachers in the US who have Cara Carroll and Abby Mullins to arrange what will most certainly be a fantastic blogging/teaching conference! (If you live in the US and don't yet know about the event they are planning head over to one of their blogs to find out more!- just click on their names above...)

Even though I am no longer in a classroom full time I still...and will always...consider myself a teacher! Right now my most important student is my 3 year old daughter (...and the handful of kids I help with homework and extra Maths lessons). I also spend many hours a day nurturing my business, Creative Classroom, a subscription based website supplying resources to teachers in South Africa. If you teach in SA and haven't yet subscribed to Creative Classroom please visit the website or leave me a comment and I will send you more information.

It is my hope that through this blog I will be able to promote the products I add to my TpT store and those that are posted to my website. I will also have freebies available and tips and ideas from my years of experience in a classroom. Please follow me and share a link to my blog with your teacher friends and other bloggers!

I look forward to becoming a member of this exciting teacher-blogging world!
Happy teaching!
