Share the Wealth Teacher-Author Spotlight- Teaches Third in Georgia

Hello and Welcome to the first Teacher-Author Spotlight of 2013! I must say that I have an amazing line-up of teacher-authors that are excited to meet you this year. In fact, I am booked all the way through November. C-R-A-Z-Y! 

I am excited for this year to develop and bloom! I have joined in with so many exciting adventures lately that my head is spinning. My latest and most exciting excursion yet is the invitationd to be a part of the All Thing Upper Elementary think tank. With 14 amazing teachers from all over the country working together, how can it NOT be fantastic? Not only am I excited to share my ideas, my classroom, my experience- and believe that makes me very excited (and nervous), but I am also giddy to learn from my 13 fellow teachers there AND all of you whom I hope will join us and share your insight and wisdom. To check that out, you can click HERE. I hope you will consider becoming a follower of that blog! You won't be disappointed.

Okay, okay. I know that you are ready to meet our amazing teacher-author. So... let's get this party started!

I would love to introduce you to Randi Smith, the creator and operator of Teaches Third in Georgia.

Randi shared this with me: "My name is Randi Smith. I currently teach third grade in North Georgia and have been teaching for seven years. I LOVE making fun and exciting things for the classroom and always try to bring in what is most popular to my kids. Engaging lessons and building a fun classroom environment is my goal."

Okay, so after reading that, how can you NOT be excited to meet Randi? With nearly 200 hundred, yes, you read that right, TWO HUNDRED resources for your browsing pleasure, you are sure to find a wonderful and useful activity, games, or CC aligned resource to fill that hole in your lesson plan.
