Welcome and thanks for stopping by!
This blog is my way of sharing my teaching ideas, collaborating with other fantastic teachers, as well as reflecting on my own practice and making changes based on my experiences. Over the past few years, hundreds of teachers have visited the site and borrowed ideas and inspiration and I hope you will, too!
To provide some background information, you should know that all of these posts are written about lessons for students in sixth, seventh, and eighth grades in reading, math, science, and social studies. I have worked at Woodlynde School, an independent school for students with learning differences in Pennsylvania since 2008. Since then, I have had the opportunity to teach in all of the middle grades across all four of the major subjects listed above.
I try to create active, creative lessons that allow students with learning differences to explore challenging content and explore it in ways that engaging, analytical, authentic, and hopefully fun! When I encounter web tools and strategies for improving instruction, I try to share them as well. If you like what you see, please join the site!
