  1. Hi Rebecca,

    Really like your blog, lots of interesting and creative ideas and insights. Thank you for that!

    I was wondering if you have heard about TES Australia (www.tesaustralia.com)?

    It is a teaching resources website which lets you share and download resources for free, among other things like looking for jobs or participating in the community. It might be a useful technology tool for your classroom.

    Best of luck with you blog!

  2. Hi Rebecca! I’m a graduate teacher who just got her first teaching job. I stumbled across your blog today & have just spent some time reading your articles. I just wanted to say what a wonderful resource you’ve created here — thank you! I’m feeling really inspired and energized and can’t wait to begin using some of the ideas you’ve written about here 🙂

    • Hi Veronica,
      Thank you! I am glad you find my blog useful – I created it at the end of my first year teaching, hoping it would help other graduate teachers, so I am glad I have achieved my aim! Good luck with you first teaching job, it is such an exciting time.

  3. Hi Rebecca,

    I read through your blog and came across a post titled, “Taking Action Beyond Raising Money” that really stood out to me! I work for a company called Ziggedy that I think would be a great addition the list of ways teachers can raise money for their class without having to ask for it. Ziggedy gives teachers the ability to earn funds for their own classroom through the online shopping of their classroom parents, friends, and family. Earning funds through Ziggedy takes only one click before you shop, and there is no cost to teachers or their supporters.

    We’ve had great early results with teachers who are on pace to more than double their normal classroom funds. Check out our recent press release to learn more about these results and how Ziggedy helps teachers here: http://www.prweb.com/releases/2015/05/prweb12706645.htm. I would love to answer any questions you may have and look forward to speaking with you.

    Best,
