They say that 'blogs should have a niche.
So, what's my niche?
To help the new or struggling teacher overcome common obstacles they may encounter in their first years of teaching.
Search through my blog or submit a question to be featured in a future post. Leave a comment if you wish. The best advice about teaching comes from veterans in the field, so I encourage people to leave comments and advice for each other.
On my blogs, you'll read about:
- sticky situations and how to respond
- moments to celebrate
- random (related) rantings
- reader-submitted questions and responses
At my store, you'll find resource e-books available to purchase through my TeachersPayTeachers links:
- Organizing and Planning for the First Days of School
- Getting Ready for the School Year
- The First Days of School
- Icebreakers and Games
- Teacher Survival
- Planning for a Substitute Teacher
- Student Reflection and Goal Setting
- Discipline Forms and Parent Communication
I hope you will find my blog to be helpful. You might be wondering how credible I am. Well, this is just me, an experienced teacher, blogging about her own experiences and trying to help others. With my years of mentoring and working with pre-service teachers at the graduate level, I'd like to offer myself to the masses as a sounding board or advice-giver for those who seek it. I'm not saying you must do what I suggest, I'm just merely giving suggestions. And I encourage you to leave comments for each other as well!
I also hope you find my documents (in my store) to be helpful. All of the templates, handouts, and activities found in the Red Beetle Resource Book line have been included because they have proven themselves useful in my own classroom over the years.
I am a 7th and 8th grade math teacher. For as long as I have been teaching, I have been creating documents that I have shared with some of my fellow teacher friends. These documents are now compiled in like categories and arranged in resource books because these friends have encouraged me to do so. I hope my fellow teachers whom I have not met will find my resources to be as helpful as my teacher-friends who have already been using them.
Why the Red Beetle? Well, he is ME! I used to draw this beetle when I was a child, and he became my make-believe identity. And now he is my identity as a publisher. He is a friendly happy little guy. Any time you see him you will know that you are looking at something that has been put together by me.
Best of luck to you in your teaching career! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about my resources.
