We created Grade A Teaching because we wanted a place where teachers could go to find something they could use in their classroom that day, that week, or that month. It is our greatest desire that we become the place you know that you can always go to find that great idea. We offer ‘user friendly’ concepts that are simple to implement.
We are eager to fill this blog with ideas and shortcuts that make your life easier and give you fun, engaging, and interesting new things to use, to help your students be excited about learning. We know that there is ‘something for everyone’, no matter your subject or grade level.
Now, let’s be honest, we mean everything we say above, but teaching can be a difficult and, at times, an overwhelming job. The other part of what we hope to accomplish is to give you a little comic relief, by making fun of stuff, a lot of stuff. It’s important in life to find the sunshine in the rain. The silver lining in the clouds, so when you’ve had a not so sunny day, we’ll be here for you. Reminding you not to take yourself or your students too seriously. Enjoy.
