Aug Currently & Jersey Girls Teacher Meetup!

This past week has been a whirlwind of happy things.  (Oh, summer, how I love you!)  
I'm linking up with Farley in Oh Boy Fourth Grade! (a little bit late) for an August currently:

First....there was the Jersey Girls Teacher Meetup right in my backyard!  Well, ok.  Not in my backyard.  Actually at the Cheesecake Factory, whose ridiculous yum cannot be duplicated in my backyard.  This was my first teacher/blogger/TpT meetup and it was so much fun!
We talked so much about teaching and TpT, it was like... my peeps!  I have FOUND you!!!

These lovely ladies are (from bottom left, up and around):
Amy from Eclectic Educating
Sue from Science for Kids
Me :)
Maria from Everyone deServes to Learn
Lisa from Bloomabilities/Dandy Doodles
(who is practically my neighbor!  Get out of town!)
Amie from Glitter Meets Glue Designs
Karen from Silly Sam Productions
Maria Whelan from @JerseyTeacher (on Twitter)
Linda from Primary Inspiration
Lauren Kenny
 and Ashley from Anchored in Learning
It was really neat to meet so many teachers from districts all over New Jersey and find out about all of our teaching positions, from kindergarten to first to ESL to basic skills to retired 1st/Reading Recovery and then some... but we all had blogging and TpT in common, along with other things we found out along the way.  Thanks so much to Maria for hosting (and even bringing us all adorable teacher pads)!
Of course, I have also been shopping away at the TPT Back to School SALE, which ends today:

  Good thing my little store is having a great couple of sale days, since I am enjoying shopping at everyone else's!  :)

  1. Hey Lindsey,
    Loved your currently post! I could totally relate to your New Jersey meet up. I met another Michigan TpT teacher the other week and we are planning a meet up with other people from our area. So exciting to meet other people who are just as excited and fired up about TpT as you. Totally different than talking your husband's ear off about your TpT world!!! So fun. Enjoy your last few weeks of summer vacation!

  2. Enjoy your month. Take it day by day so as not to rush it. Love the meet up, I have many friends thanks to the internet. It is fun to see them in person.

  3. How very exciting to get to meet other educators and bloggers! Hope you have a great school year!

  4. Wow, this is great! I also am a New Jersey teacher! I am still a fairly new blogger, but I can imagine how great it would be to meet other Jersey Teachers/Bloggers! Anyways enjoy the rest of your summer vacation. School is quickly creeping up! Best Wishes! :) P.S. I'm your newest follower!
