Getting Started

Welcome to my first attempt at blogging, social networking and posting my work on TPT.  Talk about a learning curve!  I have to admit that I've stayed away from this venue because it made me nervous.  But I've decided to jump into the deep end of the pool.  Please be patient as I learn on the job as I have always done.  I promise to share what I have learned along the way as a teacher, an AIMS National Consultant, an educational consultant with HMH and now as a teacher coach.  I have the best of all worlds right now.  I work side-by-side with teachers but I still get to model best practice lessons with the kids.  The best thing is I'm very good at finding things that are helpful to teachers.  The difference is now when I find a gold mine on the internet at about 5:30 am on a Sunday morning, I won't have to think, "Who can I call at this hour and share this?"  Now I can share with all of you. 

On December 15th, I posted my first item on Teachers Pay Teachers.  It is a layered book for DOK (Depth of Knowledge) in the Content Areas.  It's a handy tool for referencing when creating lesson plans, units and curriculum.  Of course we want students completing more complex tasks in our classrooms.  You can download your free copy here or visit my TPT Store.
