It’s teacher appreciation week, time to say a big thank you to all who have helped you learn something new!
Last week, Curious celebrated their 1st public birthday. A little over a year ago I became one of the first 100 curious teachers, and now they have over 1,000! I’m thrilled to be a part of a website that promotes life long learning in so many different subjects.
Not only am I a teacher for Curious, but I am also a student. I have been taking part in the Curious 52 challenge, and I have been having a ball learning everything from Salsa dancing to French phrases of love.
I’ve earned some nifty gifts just for participating and even have the chance to win a free ipad mini, but best of all is the opportunity to get out of my comfort zone and try some new things, all for free.
I learned how Champagne and sparkling wines are made.
Some of the lessons are a great family activity. My daughter helped me try out my pie baking skills.
Other lessons are really helpful. I’m not a domestic goddess but I learned a nifty way to clean my washing machine.
I also tried a Pilates workout, learned how to introduce myself in German, and made a duct tape wallet, plus many more.
A Gift for Saying Thanks
Want to say thank you to a teacher AND get $5 to spend on curious lessons? It’s as easy as sending a tweet and an email.
If you publicly recognize a Curious teacher via Twitter, we will give them a $5 tip on your behalf, and also give you $5 to spend on any of their lessons.
Here's how (you will need a Twitter account):
- Send a tweet in the rough format of: "Thanks to @curious teacher @summertomato for being awesome! #iamcurious #thankateacher"
- Link to their Curious teacher profile at www.curious.com/teachername.
- If you don't know the teacher's Twitter handle, just use their Curious teacher name.
- Email your tweet to email@example.com so we can credit your account $5 of coins.
- We will tip the teacher $5.
Here are some of my favorite curious teachers:
The O’Neil sisters (crafty goodness in a variety of materials)
Phillip McCordall (photography tips)
Honeysuckle Catering (fresh, delicious cooking recipes)
