Hi! Welcome to my new blog! My name is Brittany and I am a 4th grade teacher in Ohio. I have wanted to make a blog about teaching for quite some time, but I never really knew what direction I wanted to go in. Then recently I took a professional development class through my school district and loved what I learned. I knew right away I wanted to share it, but what was the best way to do that? A blog!

This year I am going into my third year of teaching, so I am still in "survival mode" as I call it! I am slowly incorporating my own ideas or ideas shared from others into my classroom. There are so many websites that that I have booked marked on my computer, and when I want to go back and try to find one idea I read about, I never can find it! I often say, "where did I find that article on...." when I have 20 articles in my folder. I want this blog to be a resource for teachers to come to to get ideas from other teachers.They may use every idea or they may use one. A blog is nice because you can book mark single ideas instead of the entire thing.

The key to making this blog work is YOU!! I can blog every day about my new idea or experience, but then you would only get ideas from me. While I do have some good ones I am excited to share with you, I am still learning so much. That is where I need your help. I want this blog to be made up of hundreds of authors, including you. I want to hear your new ideas. I want to know what works or doesn't work in your classroom. Did you go to a great professional development class and want to share with someone? Here is your place!!

So here is your homework...find a topic your passionate about, an article you want to share, or just a little piece of advice. Write it up in an email (with your name and blog address if you have one) and email it to me at  I will post the entries {the emails} in the order in which I receive them.

I really hope that this becomes a great resource for all teachers! Don't forget to tell your friends about it and start sending me your emails!!!


  1. love this idea!! when my feet stop hurting i'll definitely be sending you something! :)

  2. Great blog! I'm following!!!
