Promoting TPT in Schools
I must have also been talking about it quite a lot, too, because today as my husband and I were driving, he had a wonderful idea!
My husband is a Superintendent of Schools at a neighboring school district to the one where I teach. He didn't know much about TPT- except that I had put some of my Prezis on there- but he really wasn't aware of all the treasures and value it holds for teachers. Well- now he is! ;) Today he decided that he is going to give each of the teachers in his district money to use specifically to buy TPT items for school.
I was wondering if any other school districts already do anything like this? I know teachers spend LOTS of their own money on TPT resources, but I thought this would be another way to support all of the creative teachers working so hard to make such valuable resources available and to introduce teachers to TPT who may not be very familiar with it yet.
I would love to hear from you, if anyone has any input or experience with this idea!
