Teach Inspired!

Pure LiteracyComment

This week I’m tucking in a little surprise post in the middle of my Glossary of Terms for Writing Workshop series. For those of you familiar with workshop instruction, think of it as a mid-workshop interruption!

Teach Inspired


And, it’s a very important interruption, I’d like to take a moment and celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week!!!

Let me just say, if you are reading this post…YOU ROCK! Maybe you are a student teacher, a first year teacher, a seasoned teacher, a veteran teacher, a homeschool teacher, a retired teacher or tutor. Maybe you are an interventionist, an instructional coach, a TOSA, a principal or district administrator. Maybe you are a parent, a grandparent, or caregiver. Or maybe you are none of the above. Nevertheless, you saw the title of the post or an image that sparked your curiosity and you made your way here, and that means YOU ROCK!

After many years in education, my heart will always be a teacher. This time of year always makes me reminisce, the good times, the happiness and the hopes that comes from teaching children. And so, I wanted to stop for a moment and remind you just how truly inspiring and awesome your role as a teacher is with my favorite inspirational quotes for educators. 

Thank you for all you do to inspire children each and every day!


I'd also like to end by announcing a surprise sale in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week and TpT's 10th Anniversary!

Once more, thank you for all that you do to support this incredible community of educators. I am so grateful to be a part of this amazing organization and so very thankful to the teachers that I know and have the privilege to work alongside.

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week Everyone!

With Gratitude and Appreciation,
