It is July 8, 2013 and I have been out of school since June 19. I have been enjoying my summer vacation, but I am having a difficult time turning off my "teacher brain". I thought that blogging might help. I began by up loading some of my graphic organizers that I use in my social studies classes to www.teacherspayteachers.com . I think that when I finally get my "teacher brain" turned off completely, it will be the time that I actually need to turn it on and gear up for the new school year. I will put the visual literacy graphic organizer up here for you.
I am a future empty-nester with two boys, a husband and a passion for writing, creating and teaching. I teach 7th and 8th grade Social Studies in Massachusetts. I am a self proclaimed history geek and proud of it! In my spare time ( Spare time, ha ha that's a joke! ) I enjoy photography, reading and hanging out with my family.
