My First Giveaway!!

How is it already Sunday?! Seriously, the weekends always seem to fly by so fast! Nothing too special happened this weekend. A little shopping, a little dining, a little school work. 

I've been avoiding a lot of things lately, mostly wedding things and end-of-the-year things. It's just too much to do both right now. My goal is to get the wedding invites out by next weekend and to cross some more stuff off of the end of the year checklist.

I don't know if yours is the same, but my school requires so much to be done. I remember at student teaching, my awesome CT Suzy's idea of cleaning was putting things in the closet and shoving things in the sensory table. Whereas I have this endless checklist of things. Plus my room is getting painted so everything has to come off the walls. Boo!! 

Onto exciting news - it's giveaway time here at Teaching in the Valley! I reached 100 followers awhile ago but was so bogged down that I didn't really have time to celebrate. But now that things have reached a lull for a bit. Some wonderful bloggers have graciously donated some wonderful products. These lovely ladies are thoughtful, creative, and wonderful! I have gotten so many great ideas from reading their blogs and because of that, they have helped me become a better teacher. It's time to let the giving away begin!!

One lucky winner will win:

Good luck!!

  1. Congrats on your first giveaway! I am a first year teacher too -- and hoping to start my own blog sometime soon! :) Hope your first year is winding down well, I almost wish they gave me a checklist because I have no idea how I am going to pack up everything at the end of the year!


    1. You should definitely start a blog! It'd be great to meet some more first year teachers!. I haven't gotten the checklist yet but I have heard it's overwhelming! Good luck with the rest of the year too!

  2. Yay! Your first giveaway! I'm a fellow AZ Blogger, too! We're planning a get together after school is out and would love to have you join us!

    I hope you've had a wonderful first year of teaching! It gets easier, I promise!

    1. Thanks so much for your sweet words. I would love to come! One of the hardest things I've ever done is pack up and move to a completely new place so I'd love to come and connect with other teachers! Let me know when it's happening!
