2016 has been a good year for me, and that has been in part due to the success I have felt on a few fronts. I have had a brilliant year in the classroom—my senior class performed really well in the HSC (Year 12 external exam in New South wales called the Higher School Certificate), my colleagues and I implemented a new Year 7 program for our Music students and our students loved it, my faculty collectively put on more performances and displays this year than ever before and in my Teachers Pay Teachers store I doubled my sales from the previous year. My sales numbers are not huge by any means, I certainly could not live off them yet, but I am happy with the progress 🙂

So in another attempt to keep myself accountable for the upcoming year, below is a list of my Top 10 paid products from 2016. Some of these sell for as little as $3, some are a little more at $8. Either way, they are not expensive products. What is really interesting to me is that each of these products are all ones that were developed and used in my own classroom, some still are! I have moved schools and have had to tweak what I do in my own classroom, but essentially I use every one of these products myself, with real students.
