Teacher's Market Decisions...

Teachers, I'm not sure how to begin this, because I am a little embarrassed at my fickleness over Teacher's Market.  The truth is I love writing this blog and I enjoy being able to help teachers where I can.

When I get to the point when I am not enjoying it, it's usually because I am burned out, my balancing between blogging and family responsibilities are out of whack as well as when I'm comparing myself to other bloggers, which is never beneficial.

So, I am here to say that I will still be posting at Teacher's Market, just not as frequently as well as I will have less giveaways here at Teacher's Market for now.  I hope you are all understanding of my decision to keep up with Teacher's Market. I appreciate all of you and your support you've given me over the years.

I am learning that when I feel like giving up, to just take a break, as we all get burned out from time to time.   I also know that there will always be bloggers better than me, and that should just motivate me to learn more and improve in my blogging skills.

I also know that family comes first and children grow up so quickly.  I want my children to look back and have happy memories growing up as my parents did for me. I know I can find a happy medium between my blogging and being the mother my children deserve to have.  Please be patient with me.

Teachers, I want to hear from you on what things I have featured at Teacher's Market that you have liked most and I will do my best to provide those things. I cannot do all that I was previously doing right now, and so I want to hear from you what features/posts you liked the most.

Thanks so much for your support and for all you do for our children! I am amazed at all you do.

P.S.  I am unable to post at my regular blog right now, as it is down for a few weeks, so I will be posting at my old blog for right now. Thanks for your patience with that, too! You still can go on the blog and see the posts, I just can't post on it. 

Owl Tote Teacher Giveaway

Teachers, I am starting a Totes 4 Teachers Monthly Giveaway where you could win a cute different tote bag for school each month.  I have started a new Totes 4 Teachers facebook page for all you tote lovers! I am really wanting to get to 500 facebook fans and I know we can do it! I am so grateful to have reached 100 fans this week and so I thought I would begin our Owl Tote Bag giveaway early!  If you love tote bags and know of other teacher friends that need tote bags for school, I would love it if you would share my page with them.

We will have monthly tote bag giveaways, too. That means, lots of chances to win one for school. Plus, I will share other tote bag giveaways with you as I find them.
Come join the fun and be sure to enter our Owl Tote Bag giveaway today for your chance to win it! My main requirement is that you like my new Totes 4 Teachers facebook page. Plus, there are other bonus entries for extra chances in winning! Open to U.S. residents and our bag giveaway will end March 15th and the lucky winner will be announced March 16th.  Please fill out the Giveaway Form below to get entered to win! Thanks for your support!

If you have a quick and easy recipe you'd like to share with other teachers, please leave the recipe in a comment below and I'll be happy to share it next week!  Thanks!

Crock Pot Pulled Pork:  Makes 10 servings

This recipe comes from and boy does it look easy and sounds great!  It does take a long time to cook, however. 


***4 lbs. Pork Roast (shoulder or butt)

***2 large onions

***1 cup ginger ale

***1 (18 ounce) bottle barbecue sauce ( recommends Sweet Baby Ray's)

***Barbecue Sauce for serving (optional)


1. Slice one onion and place in crock pot.

2. Put in the roast and cover with the other onion, sliced.  Pour over the ginger ale. Cover and cook on low for about 12 hours.

3. Remove the meat, strain and save the onions. Discard all liquid.  With 2 forks, shred the meat, discard any fat, bones or skin.

4. Return the shredded meat and onions to the Crock Pot, stir in the barbecue sauce.  Continue to cook on low for another 4-6 hours.

5. Serve with hamburger buns or rolls and additional barbecue sauce.

Makes 10 servings.  Leftovers freeze well.
