I'm the Outreach Manager for Save The Redwoods League. We're an SF based non-profit focused on saving redwoods through protection, restoration and education. We've just launched a brand new, free kit for educators that includes a Redwood Transect Activity you can do with your students - you can check it out here: http://education.savetheredwoods.org/kit/index.html.
We offer a bunch of free educational resources and are continually building out our tool kit for educators. Feel free to contact me or our Education Program Manager (email@example.com) should you have any questions!
Thanks - I'm really excited to be a part of this community.
I am a middle school teacher. I teach 8th grade reading! Sometimes I feel like saying 8th Grade Reading in the same sentence is an oxymoron! What I mean by that is that many many 8th graders do not enjoy reading, that is not saying all of them...but many! Therefore I am looking for creative, innovative ways to engage my learners!
My name is Tierra and I'm from pittsburgh, PA. I have to say I am excited about coming from a city of champions and where the G-20 summit was held! Anyway, I am a grad student working on my Master's in Elementary Education which is going extremely well, Just recently I learned that I will be student teaching next fall and while that may seem far away, it feels like it is quickly approaching. I have two children; Branndon, who is five years old and is now in kindergarten, and Triston, who is two years old and attends daycare. I am looking forward to teaching and know that my first years are not going to be easy. But life isn't easy so I know that I will be ok!
Hello, everyone! Adrian Montero, Santa Ana, CA. I'm just starting to integrate technology in my class. I'd love to hear from some other U.S. History (8th grade) teachers about what they do. If you want to see what I'm doing, here is my blog. Feel free to comment and look around!

Hi! I'm new to this, but I am working on my masters in Instructional Teachnology and hoping to substitute later this year. I am looking for a social studies teacher from outside of the United States to share ideas with. It's so great to be able to talk to so many different people here!
Hello, I was looking for some research to back up the concept of the virtual classroom, and I stumbled on this forum. I'm a teacher from the island of Malta, and I teach a year three class. This forum looks really interesting, kudos to you all.
So excited about this wonderful resource! I want to soak up everything I can get my hands on. I'm currently writing a grant for software. My focus is language based programs tat support my EL students. I also plan to purchase products that support the California state standards for Language Arts for Kindergarten.
