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:
Address to mail items:
Are you willing to mail to an International participant:
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.
