*Note:  I am unable to reassign buddies mid-round.  You get who you get, so please DO NOT sign up if there’s a chance you won’t be able to follow through on your end of the bargain.  This is a short round, so it is easier for some to participate.  For those that travel a lot — maybe not so much.

  16. Do you belong to any fandoms?
  17. Please list any buddies you have already had so that I do not have to go searching through e-mails for that information. 

Please remember, the person who has you is not the same as the person you have.  Requests for specific people make assignments too time consuming.

Note:  You may not participate if you do not have an active Tumblr.

Please sign up by Friday, Sept. 6th at 4:00 EST

Whew. Everyone should have their buddies now.

Check your mail and your spam before messaging me about not getting a buddy.

Also, I did not sign up this round because of all that is on my plate with a new principal, curricula, team leader, and house.  So, if you could make sure to share how your buddy business is going, I love to hear it!

I have about 25 people to e-mail about buddies.

I’m glad everyone is so excited.  I’ve spent several hours working on this project the past few days.  I apologize to those who have to wait another day, but life happens. Please, please do not e-mail me asking for your buddy info.   Please ONLY panic or contact me after I send out a message saying everyone has been sent their buddy info.

[American] Summer Teacher Buddy Participants

This is the last month for the summer round.  Please make sure to send something.  If you have sent nothing, I suggest that you make it to your buddy.  Buddies who fail to participate for something they sign up for are suspended from the next round.  I have the master list.  I shouldn’t have to make this statement, but unfortunately we had quite a few that did not follow through in the first round and a few that didn’t in the 2nd round.  That just isn’t fair.

Official Sign-ups for the [American] Fall Semester will be soon.  Follow Team Teachers for updates.

All Summer Buddies have been assigned.

It begins June 1st, and ends August 31.  Please make sure to send 1-2 items a month (doesn’t matter whether it is a card, post card, or a small gift — needs to be sent).  If your buddy does not send you something, please contact me and I will not allow them to participate in round 3.

If you did not get an e-mail with your buddy’s name, please check your spam and if it isn’t there either e-mail me at positivelypt at gmail dot com!

Reminder! Deadline to sign up for Team Teachers Buddies is tomorrow at 12:00 PM EST.

How it works:

Each person will be assigned a buddy (you will most likely not have the person who has you).

During the course of this semester, you will be asked to mail 1-2 cards, notes of encouragement etc.   Actual gift items are up to you, but please know that we all know money is tight and it is unlikely that you will receive a gift (so don’t feel like you have to).  You are also welcome to make something for your buddy.  

Whether you reveal yourself right away or not, is up to you.  I think it is more fun to wait until the end.

You may put notes of encouragement in their ask box, send fan mail, or spend a little extra time thinking of solutions to problems they may face.

International teachers are welcome.  So are pre-service teachers / student teachers.

We will do new buddies once school is out if the idea is still popular.

Tumblr, World-shaker, Girlwithalessonplan, and I are not liable for any lost items, or other problems that occur due to this program.  You submit your address and agree to participate at your own risk.

In order to sign up, you MUST e-mail me at Positivelypt@gmail.com  I miss a lot of ask box questions, and I don’t want to accidentally exclude anyone.  You have until Sunday at noon (EST) to sign up.  For the subject please put: Team Teachers Buddies

Please include the following:

Tumblr Name:

Address to mail items:

Are you willing to mail to an International participant:

Grade Level:

Subject Taught:

Do you wish to have a buddy that has the grade level as you, or does it not matter?

Interests outside of teaching:

Guilty Pleasure (keep it G rated):

I will pass most of this along to the buddy that has you.

This is on the honor system, please only sign up if you intend to send things to your buddy.
