Share the Wealth- Teacher-Author Spotlight- DIVING INTO LEARNING

Greetings Once Again, My Dear Share the Wealth Friends,
     I hope that this post finds you happy and well. This week I am excited to share another teacher-author with you. I thought it might be fun to tell you how these teachers are selected. Each teacher that is spotlighted (this is the 10th one- holey moley! See the others HERE) has been hand-picked by me from a application process. Teachers submit their name, etc. and I have personally invited each candidate to be apart of this growing sensation. I find great pleasure in spot-lighting hard working educators as they strive to bring their best ideas (which, for most are always classroom proven activities). Not only that, but I have the added benefit of gaining a new friend and colleague. Many may think that I am being paid, or given free product. However, I can honestly say, that products that are sent for evaluation purposes are deleted once I finish a posting. I NEVER want it assumed that I say what I say because I was paid or "bribed" with products.

I hope that as you visit each week, whether for the freebies or the teacher-author spotlight, you will take the time to share what you find with those around you. A simple pin on Pinterest, a +1 on Google, a Like on Facebook goes a long ways in helping others learn about great resources that are available to them. I appreciate you "Sharing the Wealth".

And now...

This week I am pleased to bring you Diving into Learning who hails from North Carolina. Diving into Learning had this to say about themselves: "Hi everyone! My name is Diving Into Learning! I have experience working with students from pre-k through 5th grade. I'm currently splitting time between a pre-k  and a 1st grade class while I am in school. Centers are a very important part of my classroom and I use a variety of games to help my students practice their skills, which is one reason why I have so many games in my Teacher's Pay Teacher's store. One of my favorite things to create are new math games, which is strange considering math was my least favorite subject when I was in school. A few random facts about me: I love to read and I always have my kindle with me, I did not learn how to surf until I visited Costa Rica on a volunteer trip (even though at that time I had been living at the beach for 7 years), and football is my favorite sport!"

As you can see, Diving into Learning is a well-rounded individual. Anyone who can surf has a plus in my book. Having spent time browsing this teacher's store, I can easily and comfortably say CHECK IT OUT! In fact, there are 12, yes TWELVE FREE ITEMS for your viewing pleasure! Click HERE to see all the great freebies!

Of course, while you are there, you should browse the great games for centers. As was mentioned in the "all about me" section above, centers are the specialty for this store. I also found it nice that items were very reasonably priced. You could easily score 2-3 new centers for under $5!!! WOW!

Here are several items that both Diving into Learning and I thought you might enjoy:
