Jumping In!

Classroom Freebies Manic Monday

Welcome to my blog! I have so many feelings about starting this adventure! I'm nervous, anxious, excited {while biting my nails}...

For a quick introduction...
I'm Whitney and I teach third grade in Texas.  This coming school year will mark my 13th year in education.  I have taught third, fourth, and fifth grades, and also served as an elementary assistant principal for six years. I guess you could call me a hybrid:-).   I hope that through our conversations here, we can gain new ideas, fresh insight, and take ideas back to our classrooms that will engage our students in learning that is fun and relevant. I hope to connect with many of you in the next few weeks and months in ways that make a difference for kids. At Whit's End will be dedicated to all things elementary {with no boxes}. I hope you will land here often.  Follow me on bloglovin' {look up top for my button}. Can't wait to see where we go! Please bare with me as I get all of my blog up and going:-)

Now to celebrate!

  • In kicking off my journey here and to celebrate my amazing followers on TPT....I want to say thank you!! I am blown away on a daily basis of the amazing support and community on TPT.  The collaboration, feedback, and amazing ideas I see everyday continue to amaze and inspire me. I am giving away my #meetmyteacher templates! These were so fun to create! Some ideas for use might be:
  • sending out through snail mail to parents
  • Display for Meet the Teacher
  • Part of your back to school parent packet
  • Curriculum Night, etc
 I can't wait to hear the creative ways you utilize these templates, please leave me a comment on how you plan to use it! What do you think is the best part about a new school year? I'd love to hear your response below!

  23. I love this "My teacher" printout!! It will be perfect for our upcoming Meet N Greet to kick off our VPK school year. I was able to change my picture to an oval by watching your tutorial, however, the picture sits on top of the swirls or the hearts. How to i make the frame you made sit on top of my picture? It's too cute to cover it up!

  28. Hi! My daughter's teacher has done this "Meet the Teacher" for 2 years (she looped with my daughter's class) and I have felt that it was a tailored, polished look into her / our lives as teachers. So, I wanted to do this too and found your handy tool on Tpt and Pinterest. Thanks for all the help!
