Resources for Teachers

I often get mistaken for someone who is tech-savvy…don’t let the website fool you.

I prefer to think of my classroom planning as a mixture of ambition and curiosity.  I am the type of person who will start small, a trivia game, perhaps.  Then I decide that I need the tiles on the game board to link to the question, the answer, and back to the board.  Then I decide that I want the game to keep track of what has been clicked.  Can I make the colors match my classroom?  But wait, I also want pen functionality with my SMARTboard!  You can see that as the list goes on, I find myself using Google to figure out what I need to learn to accomplish my goals.

I like to make visually appealing games and lessons, and I like to use visually intuitive spreadsheets to monitor my students’ progress.

The good news for my fellow educators is that I ALWAYS make a template.

I will try to be good about sharing these templates (with instructions, of course!)
