First Time Blogger

I have been doing lots of reading this summer of other people's blogs and have decided to start my own.  I am currently a special education teacher for students with severe to profound intellectual disabilities.  I love sharing ideas with other special educators so I thought starting a blog would be the perfect way to connect. 

A few years ago I created a website to share ideas from my classroom.  There are so many websites out there for "regular" education teachers, with lots of teaching ideas, printables, pictures, and theme activities, but not many sites that are geared specifically for teachers like me.  So I decided to start my own!   But recently I have been neglecting my website and have not been keeping it updated as I should.  What can I say, life gets in the way sometimes.  :)  I'm keeping it out there because I feel it has some useful information but am hoping I can keep the blog more current and up-to-date as I start a new year of teaching. 

On this blog, I plan on sharing teaching ideas, ways to adapt materials, thematic units, and any other interesting information that comes my way during the school year.  I start back to school in one week and I am anxious to get back in the swing of things and make this a GREAT year for my students!

  1. Hey there Liz, I have a quick question for you. Do you have an e-mail address people can use to contact you? I work for a school district (Loudoun County Public Schools in Virginia) that puts together a Strategy-A-Day Calendar for professional development. On one of the pages we want to use a picture/idea found here on the blog (crediting you, of course). We send out a permission form (via e-mail or snail mail) to comply with copyright. Is there a way to contact you?
    Thanks so much!

    Thanks for considering using one of my pics/ideas for your professional development. I love to share and receive ideas from other special educators.
