Things for Teachers

more about things for teachers

The summer after my first year teaching, I wanted to find ways to better my classroom— whether it be through reading about classroom management, buying (budget-friendly) supplies, or discovering new technology. I scoured the web for books, deals on supplies, news about teaching, and technology, and I thought it would be great to create one place where teachers could find all of these things.

I am a new teacher, and there’s no way I could find all this stuff on my own, nor do I claim to be some kind of expert. I check out a lot of ed tech blogs that are very helpful (see the teaching blogs to check out link on the main page), but I don’t want to limit this blog to educational technology. I also don’t include everything that I find— only things that I find could be the most useful and easily adapted into classrooms.

I hope to keep this blog active throughout the school year, but of course I will have less time to dedicate to finding resources. If you have any resources that you absolutely love, or if you have any ideas about how to make this blog better, please submit it to share!


Who I am: A fourth year high school history teacher at an urban(ish) high school in New Jersey.

What I blog about: Stuff related to education I like, and stuff I hope can help other teachers out. Technology, deals on supplies, helpful books. My focus lately is on educational technology & related resources. Occasionally, I also post things related to education reform. Because I post articles that I feel will be of interest to teachers with varying views, the political-related posts made here do not necessarily reflect my beliefs or opinions, nor do they reflect the beliefs of my employer.

What I like learning & reading about: Other teacher's opinions about and experiences with teaching & education. How I can enrich my classroom and reach out to my students. If you write about this stuff, let me know, because I probably want to read it.

What you should submit: Anything that could help a teacher.
