Introducing Teacher Thank Yous Thursday
If you've followed me for awhile, you know that I love me some Jimmy Fallon, as does my husband. So much so, that our 2015 Couple Halloween costumes were Jimmy Fallon and Hashtag the Panda!
One of my favorite segments is Jimmy's Thank You Notes on Fridays. Sometimes they're sarcastic, and sometimes they're sincere.
You also may know that I love me some Instagram. It's my favorite social media platform, and I enjoy the connections it allows me to have to educators all over the world! I enjoy doing Instagram Lives, too, but sometimes I have a hard time deciding on a topic that would interest others. That's when the idea came for a weekly Instagram Live Broadcast combining my love for teaching, Jimmy Fallon, and his Thank You notes.
My idea is to share Jimmy Fallon inspired thank you notes that teachers can relate to. My plan is to share 5-7 Thank Yous each week that will make you laugh, say "YASSSS!", and even warm your heart sometimes. Like Jimmy's, these thank you's will be both sarcastic, as well as literal. My hope is to keep it short, about 20-30 minutes, so you can keep going with your evening. Since Instagram allows you to save your Instragram Lives to your InstaStories, you will be able to rewatch! I might even upload the videos to YouTube if that is something people would like to see.
Although I have SO many already typed out and ready to go, I want this to be interactive and fun for all of you! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, submit your ideas! I will be looking through submissions regularly and sharing my favorites each week. Just use this Google form to submit! You are welcome to share your first name, location, and username so that I can give credit where credit is due, but if you want to be anonymous...that's fine, too!
I'm so excited to start this fun, interactive, live segment, and hope you'll join me this coming Thursday, July 6, 2017 for the first one!
