I think there is something special about teachers getting to know other teachers. Not only do we have an inherent connection because of our dedication to teaching children, but we have a desire to better ourselves and learn from our colleagues.
I would like to introduce you to Heidi Raki, or Raki's Rad Resources. Heidi hails from Morocco and had this to say about herself:
"This year, I will be teaching a mixed grade class of 2nd and 3rd graders at the International School of Morocco. This will be my 9th year of teaching, with 3 of those years spent teaching overseas in Morocco. I have taught everything from 1st through 4th and even spent 2 years teaching K-5 computers. In addition to being a teacher, I am also a mother of 3 young boys and a blogger at www.rakisradresources.com and www.globalteacherconnect.com."
I spent some time this past week exploring Heidi's sites. I must say that I am impressed. She has such a variety of resources and has had many, many teachers leave her feedback. In fact, she has had 1422 votes as when this was typed and has maintained a 3.9/4.0 rating! WOW!
Here is a small sampling of her work:
As you can see, Heidi knows her "stuff"!
In fact, here is a FREE resource that you might want to snag while you are here. This will be a perfect addition to your back to school experience. AND- because it is differentiated, it is perfect for most classrooms! This ELL centered packet is AWESOME- Check out a small sampling of the 30 included pages:
The pages are engaging and interactive. I can see great value, especially for my ELL students who need all the extra support I can offer. You can get this great resource HERE for free!
