We can't believe how grown up our little blog is getting! It is a-m-a-z-i-n-g to see our followers grow each day as well as our Facebook followers, our pins on Pinterest, and those who subscribe to us on email.


Seriously, thanks for reading, thanks for commenting, thanks for following!!

Have you ever heard the story about how What the Teacher Wants was created? Let us share...

It started back in early August of 2010. Rachelle's "family blog" was getting taken over with all of the teaching ideas she wanted to share.  So, she started a teaching blog on a whim.  {Can you believe that at the time there were only a handful of teaching blogs at the time? Now there are thousands!}

Rachelle created What the Teacher Wants and started posting her great ideas. Natalie, who was a friend and sorority sister with Rachelle in college, loved the idea of sharing teaching ideas online and soon became a partner.

It's funny to look back on that time! Can you believe that in November of 2010 our goal was to have 30 followers by the end of the month? We had our first giveaway - A Scentsy warmer sponsored by Tricia. The fact that we now have over 6,000 followers blows our minds. Seriously, we never would have thought that our little teaching blog would grow up to be so big!

There are some definite perks that come along with our after school "job".

The first big perk is that we officially have business cards! The talented Lindsay from Happy Potamus Designs created a beautiful business card design for us.
If you want to start a teaching blog, I would definitely recommend Lindsay to design yours for you! (Funny story: We had no idea how many to order, so we ended up asking for 1,000 cards. Umm.... why in the world would we need o.n.e. t.h.o.u.s.a.n.d. cards??? )
{Here's a sneak peak of our cute cards}

The second big perk is that sometimes companies ask us to do product reviews or want to give us free products. We definitely appreciate ALL these requests, but one recent product sticks out.... we just got SILHOUETTE CAMEOS!! Best present EVER!!
{We can't wait to show you all the fun things we'll be making for our classrooms!!}

Another perk is meeting so many a.m.a.z.i.n.g teachers! Our Utah meet-up was a big success and so much fun. We got to meet The Teacher Wife - we were both a little in shock! We love her blog! Rachelle got to travel to the meet-up in California and met so many fabulous Cali bloggers/teachers. And can you believe that it's only 1 week away from the HUGE/GINORMOUS Vegas meet-up??
We have over 90 rsvps! We can not wait to meet the famous Deanna Jump in person {and so many more fabulous bloggers}! Tons of the big time bloggers are coming - it will be a PaRtY!!

Anyways.... let us say THANK YOU one more time. We couldn't do what we do without all our our fabulous readers! Thanks for your support!

Much Love,
Rachelle and Natalie
