Mrs. Albanese loves TpT! {Giveaway!}

This has been one of the BEST.WEEKS.EVER!
(Okay, minus the really bad winter weather that just won't go away!)
I have big, no HUGE, news...
if you already follow my Facebook Fan Page you will know that I have been invited to be an author for the amazing Freebielicious blog!
Can I just say that the other teacher-authors on this site are simply wonderful - creative, talented, and extremely generous and kind.
I am so thankful to be a part of this fantastic community!
And you know what else?
I am so thankful for Teachers Pay Teachers.
That's why I am giving away a $10 gift certificate to TpT!

But wait....there's more!
All of my friends at Freebielicious are also each giving away a $10 TpT gift card!
And even more...
Teachers Pay Teachers has graciously donated some gift certificates for us to give away from our Freebielicious blog!

I started on TpT just over 2 years ago.  Never did I think that it would take me on such an that I am forever thankful for!
I have met many people from everywhere around the world through the power of TpT.  I keep in touch with many of these wonderful teacher-bloggers daily even though we live miles apart!
I was so fortunate enough to attend a conference for the past two summers in Las Vegas, thanks to TpT, and I actually got to meet these amazing ladies in person!
I can't wait for this anyone else coming to the TpT conference in July?
Let me know!  With all this cold weather I am definitely looking forward to that!
So you probably guessed that I absolutely LOVE to travel.  You see, I live in Toronto, Canada.  The weather here is, well, terrible, absolutely frigid, in the winter!  And although summers are nice and hot, they are short lived.
So this past summer, I was fortunate enough to take my family on a vacation to Disney World and aboard the Disney Fantasy.  My daughter, who is 5, and my son, who is 3, were in awe the whole time!  Teachers Pay Teachers has given me the opportunity to take my family on a trip of a lifetime!
Our school started a new Full Day Kindergarten program that has been rolling out into various school across the province this past September.  I have 27 students this year in total, with a fabulous ECE, but keeping these students engaged in meaningful activities all day long is challenging.  There is never enough materials and resources!  So I am very thankful that Teachers Pay Teachers has given me the opportunity to go out and purchase things for my classroom....both my students and I are very happy!
I can't wait to give away a $10 gift card to Teachers Pay Teachers so you can find all the resources to use in your classroom too!  Be sure to enter below and, when you are done entering my giveaway, hop on over to Kaci, and enter to win her giveaway. Just click on her button below.
