These are resources created with the sole intention of making educators’ lives easier. I am obsessed with reading the latest teacher books, attending PD sessions, and collaborating with fellow teachers in order to bring back the most helpful information. I do the foot-work so that teachers can focus their energy on what matters – the students!
