CHSH-Teach’s 2018 New Year Giveaway

Win Teaching Resources for a Lifetime!

Now through January 21, 2018, I’ve decided to giveaway two (2) Lifetime subscriptions to the CHSH-Teach Download Club!

If you are not familiar with the Download Club on CHSH-Teach, these resources are for all grade levels PreK-12th and all subjects. Over the past few years, more families and educators are learning that CHSH-Teach.com is the one-stop site to find most (if not all) of their educational resources.

Even though the Download Club Library currently offers over 50,000 pages of resources, I am dedicated to continually adding high quality curriculum, unit studies, notebooking and lapbooking units and more.

What makes me qualified to bring you the very best resources? I am an experienced public-school teacher and a 13-year veteran homeschooling mom and my heart is fully committed to the education of our next generation. I want to share your teaching journey…and that is why I’ve decided to offer 2 (two) Lifetime subscriptions.
