Most of you have heard about the group of teachers who have set out to violate teacher authors trust and copyrights. Many of us posted something about it on our Facebook fan pages. It deeply saddened and upset us. Honestly, my first reaction was "I'm done giving away freebies."
The topic at church this past Sunday was giving. Our pastor spoke to us about giving generously, openly and frequently. This situation immediately popped into my head and weighed heavy on my heart. I love getting to know all of you and sharing my resources and knowledge. I think there is no greater resource to teachers than other teachers. We should be here to help and support each other.
This is why I have decided to continue offering freebies. I want to be part of the group that are working for the greater good. We need to be sharing our ideas, helping and supporting, trying new things, etc. Unlike the FB group I don't want to stand in the way of teachers growing their knowledge and resources.
Opportunities to win or get freebies will be a bit different from now on. I'm looking to develop relationships and interact with my followers. I will be starting to pick random people who have supported me and others on my FB page. Without interactions we can't truly help each other. If you see a helpful tip-share it! If you have a questions- post it! Found a link we should see? Please share it! Let's build up our community...It only leads to good things for our students. That is a WIN in my book!!
