We Have Much to be Thankful For…As We Celebrate Our Three Year Anniversary, We Take A Look At Some Of The People We Have Met, Who Also Strive To Make A Difference

As we celebrate our third year as a company, we have much to be thankful for.

Over the past three years, we have written a handful of academic eBooks that continue to sell…thank you to our readers ūüôā

We have been blessed to have met wonderful people and companies via Twitter and Facebook and this blog, that have an amazing impact on education like Ocean House Media, @Pragmaticmom , @MovingSmartNow, and Writers Digest to just name a few.

Fortunately, we have been asked to provide professional development numerous times throughout the school year these last three years and we have almost reached 35,000 views on this blog and our website receives thousands of hits per week…thank you!

More recently, we have struck¬†up some good dialogue with people in the publishing industry who are giving us good advice and recommending agents for us to seek out for our Unlock the Teacher series we have been collaborating on with Dr. Lick, M.D¬†and Dr. Letscher, Ph.D.¬† We are quite grateful for all the advice and recommendations…thank you!

As we prepare for this Thanksgiving holiday, we want to say we are THANKFUL to each and everyone one of you, who allow us to do what we love and encourage us to do more.

May your holiday be blessed!

Unlock the Teacher LLC Would Like to Wish Everyone a Joy-Filled Holiday Weekend

Given that we are less than a year old as a company, we have much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.¬† We are working with a handful of schools in the area of aligning the Common Core State Standards into school’s curriculum for K-8 and curriculum mapping.¬† Our ePublishing Workshops for students/teachers and adults has been quite successful and we are thrilled to have helped many students begin to build a college fund, and to assist many take their first step towards their dream of writing.

We are immensely thankful for the outpouring of support we have received via social media (Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn) from educators and writers from all over the world; your words of encouragement on a weekly basis, puts wind beneath our wings and allows us to sail further into our dreams…thank you is just not adequate to express our gratitude.¬† As we begin to send out our proposal for our 1st book in the Unlock the Teacher series to agents and publishers, it is your kind words that fuel our fire and helps remind us that we are on the right track.

We are thankful to Changez Salon for our relationship we have built-in representing them in the world of social media, website development and management¬†and the lessons that we learn by watching them give back SO much to the community…from helping cancer patients through the loss of hair process, raising funds for various charities like Gilda’s Club and Breast Cancer Awareness, sponsoring the arts in the community via Eisenhower Dance Ensemble and their current promotion, “Hair that Cares” where they are collecting can foods for those in need this winter. They are definitely beacons of light to many!

To all the parents and teachers who have purchased our academic eBooks at Barnes and Noble.com, we thank you for ALL your support!

We believe that if we continue to try to make a difference, that we will be fruitful for our efforts.  Thank you for showing us that good does beget good!

Lastly, we are trying for 10,000 views of our blog before our one year anniversary as an educational company.  We are almost there, thank you for sharing what we do and helping us continue to go into schools, work with students, parents and teachers and for helping us continue to make a difference in the life of our children, our future!

Happy Thanksgiving!

May we continue to seek knowledge in all things,

Denise and the entire Unlock the Teacher Team
