Ring in the new and get excited for a tremendous 2015! We have an exciting update to share. Annie Moffatt of The Moffatt Girls is our latest TpT Millionaire Teacher. We sat down for a little chat with Annie.

How does it feel to be the newest Millionaire Teacher on TpT?

It is a privilege to know that so many teachers and homeschoolers choose to purchase and use The Moffatt Girls products on a daily basis. Teaching is my passion and I LOVE that I can create resources that make learning fun, hands-on, and effective for others. When I create a resource I try to think of my buyers and their students. I want teachers to walk away with a resource that they feel is highly effective and worth printing. To think that one teacher can use The Moffatt Girls resources with nearly 30 students is AMAZING!

It is my sincere hope that each product they purchase and each page they print makes the learning journey more successful and more rewarding. I want students to get excited about learning, just like my little Moffatt Girls. I want students to feel successful, build confidence, and LOVE to learn! The BEST part about this milestone, is being able to reach, influence, and educate children around the world. What an honor! I am overwhelmed and incredibly grateful.

What are you looking forward to in 2015 on TpT?

There is no other place like TpT, that’s for sure! I feel so thankful to be a part of this growing family and community of talented educators and supportive staff. I love that TpT is so forward thinking and is constantly making changes that help both the buyers and the sellers. TpT has made so many changes this last year, and I am very excited to see the great things in store for 2015!

Most of all, I am looking forward to the 2015 TpT Conference in Vegas. Last year’s conference was absolutely AMAZING! It was so fun to meet and hug the friends that I made through blogging and collaborative boards. I can’t wait to do the same this summer.
