Today, I’m here to share with you my personal story of how and why I started as a product creator. Back in 2011, I was on maternity leave with my son when I first came across Teachers Pay Teachers. This site intrigued me and I gravitated to its offering of free teaching materials. From there I started following some blogs and the stores they created on TpT. It wasn’t until returning to work in 2012 that I started thinking about becoming a seller myself. I didn’t official start creating until much later because there was a lack of confidence on my part (“Who would ever buy anything from me?”) and a lack of knowledge. I had no idea how to use graphics, how to properly credit sources, what programs to use…the list goes on!
*SHARE YOUR CREATIVITY*
You have ideas in mind and you want to create them. You can make your products look any way you want. You can create any activities and materials that you or others need. Maybe you have a knack for creating fun science experiments or coming up with engaging games for your classroom. Why not share those ideas with others? This is a way to do all that!
You will be sharing your resources with the entire world. Students all over the world will be learning using what you have created. That’s a pretty amazing thing!
