It was on August 8, 1999 that proteacher was born. How about if all of you who were members from the beginning post and let us know who you are.

I wasn't on PT back then, but that is the day I signed my contract to begin my teaching career!

Wow...I feel like I'm late coming to the party only being a member since 2006. If I remember correctly I stalked & got ideas for several years before joining.

I'll have to plan a big bash next July for my 15th anniversary with PT

Happy birthday proteacher!
I believe I joined in February 2000! Had a few user's names since.
I still remember fondly Elaine from Kentucky, Cathy-Dee, Sharon, Amanda, Gina from Texas maybe, and a few others!
I still check here almost daily, even though I'm retired. Proteacher is definitely my favorite (and almost only) 'social' website!

I think I came on in about 2006 and back then I was IcGr4. I switched names when I switched grades in 2010.

Happy Birthday, Proteacher!

Happy Birthday PT

Wow! Time really flies! I was working on my National Boards when I discovered PT. I needed help with health lessons for 5th and 6th grades. I was using a computer at a college to search and I hit the jackpot. I think it was the summer of 2005. The hot topic in the teacher's lounge were Crocs with heels!

Happy Birthday to the Best Teacher Website!!!

Happy birthday, PT! I know PT has been around awhile, but I'm surprised it was 1999. I know the Internet was around long before that, but I feel like, at least in my area, it was just starting to take off and become very popular in about 1997-1999. I don't remember any message boards until at least the early 2000s!

Happy Birthday PT!

I was 24 yrs old that year...wish I could stay 24 for about 10 yrs, ha!

Happy birthday, ProTeacher! \

I started way back around 2001. I did have to change my username because there was someone from my school on here and I didn't want to be recognized!

The board looks different than it did when it started! I loved it then and I love it now, even though I'm retired!

Wow— 21 years ago!! I forgotten when I joined so I checked. I completely had forgotten —— I joined in 2009- the year my mom passed away. I joined the day of her birthday. Looking back it’s a nice tribute to her since she was also a teacher.

Happy birthday pro teacher! I joined in 2006 and can’t even begin to say all the ways it has helped me as a new mom, a teacher and a wife. Such a wonderful place to be!

Happy birthday, PT!

I've been here since 2001. I remember finding this site and being so excited! I was going back into the classroom after being a stay-at-home-mom for many years. The advice and encouragement helped me so much! The site looked different back then, but the support was just as strong.

Thanks for being there for me!

I am grateful for that day! I LOVE my PT family!

I was not here then either, but that was the day before our newborn foster daughter, now daughter, arrived in our home!
