Every session and meet up I attended was flooded with smiling faces and warm welcomes from like-minded teacher authors. Every ah-ha moment was delivered by successful, top earners who shared every detail of their best practices and secrets to success.
Our unique TPT author community has the mentality that the more we work together, encourage one another, and share…the more we will grow together. The powerful result of this cooperative mentality is growth for classroom teachers, and more importantly, growth for the students they teach.
Without a doubt, the surge of inspiration this conference provides to teacher authors will trickle down into every classroom where TPT resources are used to bring learning to life.
The two most powerful sessions at the conference this year were lead by Maria Manore of Kinder Craze [Advanced Blogging: The Next Frontier] and Erin Brewer Cobb of Lovin’ Lit [From Teacher To Teacherpreneur].
The Next Frontier For Core Inspiration
Maria Manore educated teacher authors about the importance of nurturing a blog that feels like a home away from home for teachers. She is an extraordinarily intelligent and poised presenter who really got me thinking about how to take my blog to the next level.
As author of Core Inspiration, my goal moving forward is to deliver teaching ideas in a format that is highly visual and quick to read. I want continue to transform this blog into a space where elementary teachers feel inspired and empowered, yet refreshed and relaxed. Maria allowed me to envision my blog in a way I did not think was possible. I have a long road of strategic planning ahead to ensure that vision comes to life, but I am electrified by the possibilities.
Being A Teacherpreneur
Every teacher author experiences moments when the balance we work so hard to establish is lost. When it happens, don’t dwell on it; recuperate quickly and get back on that horse ASAP.
