It’s hard to believe that it will be two years this July that I have had my blog! Time flies when you are having fun. It has been a lot of hard work and I have learned a lot about myself as a teacher and as a person.
At the beginning of my journey, I felt like it was a good idea to put my resources that I had created for my classroom on TPT for sale. They were always created out of a love to provide the best materials for my students and I figured, why not get paid for it? I did well and liked that fact that my resources were helping other students and teachers. But in the back of my mind, I always felt a little sad. After much prayer and thought, I realize that God has taken me on quite a journey these last two years and I have had a change of heart.
God is calling me to move all of my resources off of TPT and offer them free to whomever may need them. I know so many of my fellow teachers out there use their own hard earned money to pay for resources for their classroom. I want to take some of that burden off of them and offer my support in a tangible way. So as of this blog post today I will be shutting down my TPT Kinderbirdies store and making the transition to have all of my resources for free on the Kinderbirdies website. It will take me a while, but I will be uploading resources with a new post every Friday this summer.
Please understand that I love TPT and totally support teachers who provide incredible products in that space. God has just laid out a different path for me. I know I will continue to support my favorite teacher-authors by purchasing their products and encouraging their successes. I wish TPT the best. I also know that I will continue to create resources for my classroom as well as just for fun! Those resources moving forward will also be free on my website.
I hope that you all have a chance to stop by this summer and find something useful to you. If you choose to follow me on Bloglovin, you will get updates whenever I post more free resources. I have over 400 resources to upload so I will be busy :0)
Thanks for being a part of my journey. Whether you are a classroom teacher, specialists, Sunday School teacher or parent, my heart is full knowing that kids are learning and growing using my resources.
