When it comes to free teacher resources, quality really does vary. Some websites seem promising at first, but fall short in the delivery. Sometimes we get our hopes up about a new professional development opportunity, only to leave with yet another useless binder. I know you've been there. I have, too. I know what it's like to spend so much time searching for just the right thing before breaking down and just putting it together myself. This is one of the reasons I wanted to build not just a website, but a community for teachers just as strapped for time as I am!
Between my days as a Sunday School teacher, Early Childhood educator, raising my own children, and teaching in Middle School (and now preparing for my next step as a School Librarian!), I have had many opportunities to create and refine classroom printables. Many of these treasures have been lost to the ages due to moving or pesky computer crashes, but now I am working to offer you some of my favorite free teacher resources. Now that I'm putting it online, it won't get away from me again!
Much of what is offered here has been used in my own classroom or designed specifically for someone who needed it. When possible, I will feature pictures of items in use in the classroom. It is always fun to see things used in other settings, so if you want to send me a picture of something you have used, please let me know if it would be okay to use your photos online. When time allows, I do design by request, so if you have a great idea you would like to see on the site, please send me your wish list and I'll see what I can do.
