When I was attending school for my teaching degree, my professors kept repeating over and over, "great teachers beg, borrow and steal." I didn't realize how true this would be until I started teaching myself.
The teacher I am today is a combination of every teacher I have ever worked with, every educator who has shared resources online, every mentor I've ever had. I hope to pass along that knowledge and share some resources with you that will get your students out of their seats and closing their notebooks.
I specialize in 8th grade U.S History, English, and Gifted Education. Not only do I teach regular U.S History and Honors English, but I teach a gifted class that combines U.S History and English.
Though my lessons have an emphasis for gifted students, I believe that all of my lessons can be differentiated for different groups and grade levels.
Lastly, I'm not an expert on anything. I'm not a super experienced teacher, I learn things every single day. I make a million mistakes and have to re-adjust. I have lessons that go horribly and I have students whom I cannot get under control. I hope to create a community that supports and inspires each other in a increasingly difficult profession. This blog has been many hours in the making and a lot of love goes into each lesson. Let's make the classroom a fun place to be. I hope that you enjoy!
If you are a teacher or know a teacher, I would love for you to follow along! Thanks for all the support, bbs!
If you haven't, please take my survey about this blog.
Have a great week!
