Teachers Pay Teachers


I finally did it! I am excited and feeling a bit overwhelmed. Am I really ready for this step? I hope so, because I jumped in today! I gathered my courage and opened my TpT store .

I only have two items so far~Fraction freebies that are also offered here on my blog...

I'm sort of surprised at myself for this nervous attitude. I've always jumped into whatever with both feet...this sort of makes me feel pressure, though...gotta get on it!!

I want to offer my ideas and fun activities for others to be able to use. Of course, the idea is to make a little extra money since our salaries have been cut each year for the past four years (as if we were so well paid to begin with...).

Did anyone else feel excited, but nervous when you opened your TpT store? I'd like to hear...

Thanks!

  2. It makes me nervous, too! Like Miss Nelson said, I know nothing about copyrights, so that's tricky. Plus, it's kind of the whole, "will they like it? will they like me?" type of thing! :D Congrats! I still haven't posted any paid items yet; too nervous!

  3. Congratulations Melly! I was also nervous at first and still get worried about whether my things are good enough to sell, or even offer for free. Good luck!

  4. Yeah! I'll go follow your store right now! I opened my shop this summer and am still nervous about the whole thing...but excited too! Copyright Laws and making sure I give credit where credit is due is something that I worry about...and I pray that I never step on someone's toes...if that's even possible! :)

  5. Good luck! You will do great! I get nervous about copyrights too. I make sure that I right down the creator of every piece of clipart I use as I'm making my units & hope for the best. :)
