PLEASE FOLLOW ME, @TRESCHICTEACH, HERE, ON IG, OR PINTEREST TO SEE NEW, REGULARLY UPLOADED ACTIVITIES! You can also follow my eighth grade ELA classroom on IG and Twitter @aagriffin1 to see us in the trenches! I love to create my own classroom lessons and activities! I have been teaching middle school for twelve years and I couldn't imagine loving any other job more than this! As with any other job, it has its exciting days and it has its rough days, but I am passionate about what I do and I am continually striving to become better to do better every day.
My classroom is vibrant, energetic, and fun. I have flexible seating and a bring your own device (BYOD) rule. I have extremely high expectations and the kids know it, but I expect great things for them and I'm okay with being the one who needs to let them know it. I also love to laugh, be silly, and get creative. Whenever I can provide project-based learning, I do. I love to let the kids take off with their own ideas, collaborate, and be empowered. Every day, I learn something new about students and myself. No two days are the same and I wouldn't have it any other way. It's exhilarating.

Almost all products are fully editable, but if the formatting is opening strange, I am happy to send a PDF version, so it doesn't do that. Please contact me anytime.
I am a TpT newbie, as of Spring, 2017, so I welcome feedback to make my products better and I appreciate your support and trust in me! :)
