As a teacher, I dreamed of a school model where teachers had every Friday 'off' from teaching. Community members would teach the children that day, and the teachers would have a whole day to write lesson plans! How supportive of a system, eh? I decided that, while I take some time off from teaching to raise my 1 year old, the next best thing is to write lessons for those teachers who also wish they had more time to lesson plan. So, teachers of middle to high school, I got your back. I write lessons for Spanish, various sciences, system-thinking interactive activities, ice breakers and... you name it. Seriously, you name it and I'll create it for you. I hope my store lightens your load and increases enthusiasm for learning in your classroom.
