Welcome Teachers and Homeschoolers!
In teaching you will learn, and in learning you will teach. —Phil Collins
Education challenges teachers as well as students to expand their comfort zones and explore new frontiers. The best way to become a teacher is to dive in and teach! You will learn what works and what doesn't. It's a process. Work to improve, one day and one step at a time.
This site exists to help you:
- Gain confidence in your ability to help children of all ability levels reach high academic standards.
- Increase your competence by expanding your teaching "tool box" with efficient, tested ideas for use in kindergarten through eighth grade.
- Encourage your students and be encouraged by their objective success.
Children are the future. My mission is to support those of you who work with them on the front lines — classroom teachers and homeschooling parents — so you become the best teacher you can be. Every individual child is unique, as is every individual teacher. The goal should be to do the best job you can do in your situation.
This site contains my workshop talks as well as numerous freebies. Note that Nature's Workshop Plus, Inc. is the distributor for book titles and orders placed on this site will be routed through them. I encourage you to explore the Nature's Workshop web site for a wealth of wonderful resources.
In addition to resources for teachers, I've posted adventure stories and thoughts on subjects that interest me personally. I've hidden freebies here and there to reward people who take time to delve into the site. It is a huge site, with hundreds of separate pages and more to come. Be in touch! I'd love to hear your stories and learn what you found in the site that worked for you!
