I am a retired teacher of 26 years. Taught 2nd grade a quarter of a century (makes sound really old right?) BUT true...

Taught 1st grade one year, but 2nd was my true teaching niche'. Loved it and did a lot of technology with them my last few years!

I stayed active in my district after retirement with ed tech.

I told a group of new teachers in August that "if you go into teaching for the right reasons, you die a teacher at heart!: I will always consider myself a teacher!

Nice to meet all of you (or see the ones I already know!)

I teach 6th grade. This is my 15th year teaching. I've taught everything between grades 2-6. I look forward to sharing ideas, resources, Pearl Jam thoughts, etc.

I started teaching 4 to 10 year-olds 2 years ago when I moved to Germany. I teach English, but noticed right away that the same things that work for elementary help out much more than my language teaching training! Literally the kids climbed walls the first day I taught them! I detail this experience in this post about how I came to use cooperative learning lessons.

I'm a brand new K-6 teacher from Australia. I'm sure I will have many questions to ask and resources to share over the coming months.

Here's where it gets interesting

The state tests will be done soon and that's usually when most students and even some teachers check out for the year. I always feel differently. While the pressure of the test is gone, now the fun can start. I can experiment and play a little. I explore other resources and test out new sites.Since everything I wanted to cover in the curriculum is done and all the grades I needed are in, the things I meant to try all year have worked their way to the top of the To Do list. Here's where I can…See More
