I joined June of 2010.

2008, but didn't become a regular reader/poster until later. I didn't realize what I was missing!

NJ Teacher 08-09-2019 03:49 PM

September 2005 for me.

readerabbit 08-09-2019 10:25 AM

Love my PT friends. my postings should be more on the counter but who cares..... I too discovered when “ surfing” the web was the adventurous thing .

Cat woman 08-09-2019 03:18 AM

I joined in 2009. I learned about it from the Two Sisters websiteó they had mentioned that there was a group of teachers that shared a lot about Daily 5. I got so many great ideas and resources to use as I began using D5 in my classroom! I later did some PD on D5 and almost shared this site, but then decided not to

PPCDTeacher 08-08-2019 04:24 PM

i was here the first few months it opened, but i used a different name

Phyllis 08-08-2019 02:45 PM

Prior to that, I lurked for a good while.

driventoteach 08-08-2019 01:50 PM

July 2009 but haven't been super active since like 2013-2014

klarabelle 08-08-2019 01:43 PM

I came on board 7/2008. I have used the same name as a tribute to my beloved grandmom. It was a nickname I had for her.

I am so glad I found PT, it has be very helpful with all the support from so many people.

Suezie 08-08-2019 12:23 PM

I was here before you had to make an account. I started posting in 2001. I used a variety of usernames but settled on Suezie in 2002. I added the “e” to my name because there was an Australian poster who went by Suzie.

Here is one of my posts from the year 2002. I believe CathyDee was one of the first posters as I can find posts that she made in 2000.

2011 - I can't believe it's been that long!

dawnmei 08-08-2019 10:42 AM

My homepage says I joined in 2010, but that was the 2nd time. I think I was on for a year or so around 2006.

Lottalove 08-08-2019 10:32 AM

I started off posting with a consistent but anonymous username when I discovered PT in the summer of 2005. I made it official and joined with that username in Sept. 2005
Me too! Then in 2007 something happened to make me think I wasn't anonymous enough so I changed to this username...

So, like others, longer than it shows...
Gromit 08-08-2019 08:18 AM

Summer 2006, but this is my 3rd name because the first wasn't anonymous enough and I don't remember why I didn't like the second.

Heidi 08-08-2019 07:48 AM

I have been hanging around this site since 1999...way back when you didn't have to sign in or be a member to post. I don't post much, but love reading and contemplating what everyone else writes about. It's fun to remember all the stories and situations that have come and gone throughout the years. (every time I see a package on a porch, I wonder about the lady with all the boxes on her porch.)

deb603 08-08-2019 06:25 AM

2006, I was being changed to a new grade level and was panicking. Back then lots of people shared resources. It was life saving!

Shelby3 08-08-2019 06:05 AM

My sign in says 2008, but that's under Shelby3. When I discovered PT it was all about the Busy Board. I thought I'd died and gone..... so grateful. The patient and all knowing CathyDee and other pros helped me immensely. I lurked and really never thought I's post very often. I was content to read and soak up the "atmosphere" of PT.

Janylynne 08-08-2019 04:38 AM

2007-08, I think

lakey 08-08-2019 03:23 AM

I have been on sine since 2008. Discovered Daily 5 here and i remember all the sharing we did back then before TPT came into existence. I am retired now and still check it out daily!

Marriedin79 08-08-2019 03:08 AM

Apparently a lot of us joined at that time. I think Iíve had the same avatar all that time. This has been my only user name. Iíve always been careful as to what I say. Now that retirement is creeping up, Iím not as cautious.

Linda/OH 08-08-2019 02:43 AM

Apparently since 2007! It's fun to read these! I kept my name and have only changed my avatar once.

WacSingLof 08-07-2019 10:30 PM

I joined in 1999, under another name. I remember Elaine from kentucky, Sharon in Canada, Cathy-Dee, Amanda, Susan... I've learn so much, even though I don't post much...

Than it says because i had two profiles.

What does it say under my name? That is when I found PT. It has been a while!

yellowflowers 08-07-2019 08:04 PM

Been a member since August 2011, although I had lurked for a few months before that, like many of you it sounds!

I'm retired & still love this happy place.

cvt 08-07-2019 06:55 PM

I had been lurking for about 6 months before I joined in 2007. Chocchip, funny that you mentioned Daily 5. I started doing it as soon as I read about it on PT. It was a total game changer for me and later for my team.

Chocchip 08-07-2019 06:45 PM

I joined in 2008 when I wanted to change things up in my classroom with Daily 5!

MAsped 08-07-2019 06:43 PM

November 2010, same name. I like it here. I've gotten lots of good input throughout the yrs.

iteachk2010 08-07-2019 06:38 PM

I lurked a little bit before joining June 2011.

SassyTeach 08-07-2019 06:36 PM

Since 2008, but I was a different name for a bit. It was too telling, so I changed it.

linda2671 08-07-2019 06:34 PM

I joined on July 26, 2006. For the first two or three years, I spent way too much time here.

NCteacher 08-07-2019 06:34 PM

I think it was February of 2006 that I joined.

JDprek 08-07-2019 06:23 PM

I joined in June of 2007😮

Teacherbee_4 08-07-2019 06:09 PM

I joined in July 2011 when I got my first teaching job. However, during my last year in college, I was on as a student teacher and future teacher just posting on the same guest name (newbie I believe) until I created my username.

School Time 08-07-2019 06:00 PM

I have had two user names. I had to look up the old one. I started with the old name in October 2005. The site had a different format then.

LuvMickeyMous 08-07-2019 05:57 PM

I joined July 2010!

sportsmom88 08-07-2019 05:57 PM

October 2011 same user name.

Haley23 08-07-2019 05:52 PM

Mine says July of 2012. I didn't really lurk before posting. I remember the first thing I came here and posted about. I had just moved to my current city and had gotten a job in an "inner city" district that local people seemed to have negative opinions of, and I was scared (basically, people kept telling me I was either crazy or "brave" for working there). People here were very reassuring. Unfortunately, the job did turn out to be a hot mess. Not so much because of the location/population but because school and district leadership were both beyond nutty and running the place into the ground.

I struggled a lot with my admin that year and people here were extremely supportive. I was on another teacher site before this where I would not have gotten that response. Thankfully I stumbled on PT at just the right time. Honestly having this as an outlet may have saved me that year- plus I was blessed with an amazing team. Especially since I was a newer teacher at the time, it was so helpful to even get reassurance that what I was experiencing at my school wasn't normal or acceptable.

Toni 08-07-2019 05:42 PM

I joined officially in Sept. 2005. I was on PT before then but we didnít have to use official names then.

owl98 08-07-2019 05:42 PM

I know Iíve been coming here a long time... I think I started lurking in 1999! I didnít officially join until you had to be a member to see pictures, I think...

Summer of 2010 for me. I found it when I was doing research for a class.

teacherwriter 08-07-2019 05:18 PM

I joined in April 2011. I found PT by posting on a Yahoo substitute teachers group. Remember Yahoo groups? I was really active there and thought the sub group would be good, but another poster said to try PT. I've been here ever since.

happygirl444 08-07-2019 05:16 PM

I need to post to see what it says! Ha ha!

Okay, it's 2007. You all helped me through my first interview! Thank you. I learned so much on here that I looked better than I actually was back then!

Wow, Iíve been on about 9 years, I had a different user name the first year.

Same as GR, except I started in summer 2006 and didn't make it my official user name until the end of that school year. Kept the name almost the same though (started with Grace K)
nucleus 08-07-2019 04:26 PM

This is my second user name. This one is from 2009. The other one started 2006. The years have flown by!

Tessa_Rue 08-07-2019 04:01 PM

June of 2010 is when I joined with this username, but I *think* I may have been on with a different username prior to that.

jazzer 08-07-2019 03:53 PM

I found this site in June of 2006, but just lurked for a while then finally joined in October of 2007.

I joined as Javamomma in 2005. I found PT before then but had other use name.

KatieViolet 08-07-2019 03:39 PM

Oct 2008 for me, but my original username was way too telling, and I was outed in an embarrassing way by a superior so I switched to this one.

jks 08-07-2019 03:38 PM

I was working on my National Boards and researching science units when I discovered PT. I officially joined Oct. 2006, but was lurking the year before.

Hifiman 08-07-2019 03:36 PM

It shows Oct 2005 for me, but I was part of PT before it changed to the current site.

I don't get out much.

knit1purl2 08-07-2019 03:36 PM

I remember using Proteacher before this format. I had a different user name. I switched user names, when I realized I was revealing too much. I read often, but only post if I have something new to add.

choppie70 08-07-2019 03:29 PM

I started in May of '09.

I had a student teacher at the time and it was her week to fly solo. I was not supposed to be in the room much so I hung out in a little tutorial room, looking for teaching ideas. I stumbled across PT looking for information on BEE Binders!
