Today, I reached a sales benchmark on TpT that I never would have thought within reach. I cannot express to you how much it means to me and to my family that you choose to purchase my lesson plans and activities. With yet another son on the way (three boys in three years! Ay ay ay!), I am so grateful that I can stay home full-time. My husband is a Realtor, and although he is very successful, we have no guaranteed income from month to month. Consequently, the decision for me to stay home was not an easy one. You have made my life-long dream a reality! I try to honor your support by never charging more for something than what I need to receive an ‘hourly wage’ for the time that it takes me to create it that justifies working from home instead of outside the home. To thank everyone, I’m throwing a 20 percent off storewide sale for the rest of the day today and tomorrow. I’ll also be sharing several new free resources before the end of the week.

Thank you, truly, from the bottom of my heart!!  And thank you Jesus for Your provision and faithful answer to prayer!!!!

  1. LOVE your stuff!!!! Keep it coming, please! I stayed home for 10 years and taught homeschoolers Spanish in my living room each week. Loved it! Enjoy your children! 🙂

    1. Thank you, Martina, for creating so many wonderful resources for all of us TPR-S Spanish teachers!! Praise God that you are able to stay home in this very precious time with your boys. 🙂 I’m hoping you will still keep your website up and yes, keep the resources coming! Lord Bless you on your journey as a Stay-At-Home Momma!!!

  2. You won’t regret staying home with your children. I returned to teaching 10 years after staying home with my kids. I love your materials…and will keep buying! God bless you!

  3. You make our lives so much easier and your lessons and posts have changed my teaching forever!!!! I’m glad you found your niche. I hope after you finish adding lessons to your Spanish 1 and 2 curriculum maps that you do curriculum maps for upper levels, too. Spanish 3 and 4 and even AP. I’d buy it ALL!!!!

  4. Being a mama is the most important job in the world! You are an excellent mama and teacher, you teach so many of us and share without limit. THANK YOU Martina!

  5. I was scared to leave my job as a social worker when my first child was 18 months old–much more than losing an income, I feared I was losing my identity. It’s wonderful that you can be home and still be involved in the teaching you are obviously so passionate about. I never regretted my decision (which incidentally led me to a new career in teaching Spanish) and as the others have said, you won’t either. God bless you and your family.

  6. It is wonderful to have a dedicated and passionate person such as yourself, helping us to have great resources to use in our classrooms! Congratulations and thank you!

  7. No, thank you so much for providing such great material so reasonably priced. And, honestly, I love tprs, but without the guidance of your “curriculum” I might not still, so successfully, be implementing it. So I am happy to pay for your materials!

    Also, as broke as we always were, I never regretted staying home with my kids (I stayed home until my 1st went into 5th grade). It was a gift.

  8. Martina, I have been using your materials since I first became aware of the Comprehensible Classroom, and love the energy and creativity that they have added to my teaching. I look forward to more of your great work, as well as hearing about your growing family. Congratulations on your success, as well as your decision to stay at home.

  9. Considering the HUGE positive impact your materials and blog have had on my teaching, I am GLAD to support your TPT shop! Congratulations on your success and may it continue!

  10. I have really enjoyed purchasing your lessons. We have recently been working on the Cinco de Mayo lesson and it has been wonderful. I appreciate the time that you take to create such wonderful lessons. I like to add a lot of variety to my classroom. Thank you for providing such great resources and supplemental lessons that I just typically, with 4 children, don’t have the time to put together. Enjoy your three boys. I had three boys before I finally got a little girl. I believe she is more work than the three boys put together. 🙂

  11. THANK YOU for putting so much time and thought into making quality, creative, challenging, fun, beautiful, and easy to use materials! I think I have purchased all of your units, and lot of the extras, and they are by FAR my and my student’s favorite curriculum materials. I may be gushing, but your materials and the perspective and guidance you give on your blog have made such a positive impact on my career as a FL teacher. I’m so happy for you that you are reaching your goals and getting to be at home with your kiddos!

  12. Martina, you inspire me to be a better teacher every time I read one of your posts or use your lessons. Thanks for all you do. Enjoy your time with your children and keep creating great materials!
