The Real Teachers of "Blog" County: New monthly link up!

Hello all!  Welcome to the Real Teachers of "Blog" County link up!  I wanted to start this because most of the time on teacher blogs you see all of the wonderful things that teachers are doing in their classrooms!  I know when I post I only post the best and shiniest pictures I can take!  But, we are also real teachers...I can't speak for anyone else, but I am FAR from perfect!  So, without further ado, welcome to The Real Teachers of "Blog" County!

This month we are linking up "The junk drawer" or another problem spot in your classroom that collects....well...junk.  I know I have several spots in my room, but this one is the worst offender:

Honestly, I don't even know what is all in this drawer anymore: Littlest Pet Shop toys (I am a collector...don't judge), that green bag I think is full of pencil top erasers, an extension cord, a picture frame, some papers...you know all of those random things essential to being a teacher!


I always plan to clean it out, but I really have other things to do!  




Would you like to join us and link up?  Here are the "rules": 

1. Use the graphic above at the top of your blog post.

2.Once you link up please visit 2 other blogs and leave meaningful comments!  We all love comments!

3. Please link up your "The Real Teachers of "Blog County" post directly.  Please don't link to products or your store!  

Thank you Real Teacher Bloggers!  

Next month's topic will be: Hoarder Series:  What is the teacher supply you can't get enough of? I will be post on second Wednesday of each month. Next month will be Feb. 11!  Thanks for stopping by and linking up!

  2. Reading your post, as well as many of the others, make me feel so much better! The clutter on and under my "teacher table" has reached monumental proportions, and I will take a picture of it tomorrow and link up! Thanks for "keeping it real!" Next months "hoarders" theme made me chuckle. There are not enough bins and baskets in the world to hold my book collection, and I just ordered a "few more" from Amazon this afternoon!

    1. Yeah, my book collection has gotten a bit out of hand as well. I may have a pen and sticky note issue as well! Can't wait to read your post!

  3. OMG! I L-O-V-E this link-up! I have fallen off of the blogging train and this makes me want to jump back on! I am working on my post RIGHT now when I really should be working on my to-do list for school. I will be linking up with you each month. Thanks for the funny title too! RHOA is a favorite topic around the water cooler at my school. Now I'm a part of the RTBC.

  8. This is just a fun linky! And, it's nice to be so "real" on my blog. I'm definitely not always as tidy and organized as I might seem from my usual blog posts. Thanks for hosting this!

    1. You're welcome! I am inspired to clean out my "junk" drawer now. Maybe we need to do a follow up linky of our trouble spot cleaned up!

  9. I love the ideas for this linky too! I wouldn't know where to begin to show you my problems so all I can say is "Hello, my name is Lisa. I am a paper/supply/stuff-a-holic. I have not been tidy in 21 years." :) So yes, I'll be back next month!
