Indiana Teacher Blogger Meet-Up

So, I technically stopped being an Indiana teacher blogger about 4 days before the meet-up… but these girls were gracious enough to let me join them anyway!

The 15 of us met up at a Mexican restaurant and stayed for hours binging on chips and salsa (or was that just me?) and chatting about our schools, blogging, and TpT. It’s always great to get together with other teachers, but being bloggers too just gave us that much more in common.

Our hosts Heather and Ciera made us personalized nametags (which made me feel *so* official) and these cute quote frames! Isn’t it cute?

They even planned a teacher gift exchange!

Look at all these incredible ladies I got to meet:

If you ever get the chance to go to a meet-up, make sure you do it. I had such a great time with these girls- totally worth 4 hours in the car!

Thanks to Ciera and Heather for planning such a fantastic meet-up! You can read more about our fun from some of the other Indiana teachers here:

  4. Oh my goodness, I was just reading about all of the other teachers having Blogger meetups and was super jealous, wondering if there was an Indiana one. Looks like I just missed it!! I'm in Ft. Wayne. I'm now following you on Blog Lovin and I'm going to check out all of the Indiana teachers you have linked up! So excited!!!

  5. Thank you for coming out to the meet up and bringing your fancy camera. The pictures you took were amazing and the collage makes my heart smile. :) I have major faith that your job search in Cincinnati will turn out great and you'll get a splendid position. (Hopefully teaching 3rd grade because it's my favorite.)

    Lots of love,
