A New Teacher-Hobby

Teachers, lets face it, we need hobbies! At the end of the day (or week), we need to relax and re-energize. Aside from the gardening and jogging, I have found a new hobby... Blog Hopping all of the teacher blogs I can find. It has opened up a new world of teachers and their 'tips and tricks', classroom pictures from around the world and different experiences that I'd like to try. So, when you settle down at your laptop and you need a little 'pick-me-up' a good place to start is at the Connect-a-Blog Teaching Blog which is like a hub for other great Teacher Blogs to be found! It's highly addictive but for all of the knowledge and ideas you gain from it, its worth it! 

Plus it helps to put that zing of enthusiasm back in so that I can try something new with my students the next day! 

And if you prefer facebook, there's Top Teacher Resources where you can find the latest updates about teacher-created resources and tips from teachers and educators alike. Happy Blog-Hopping!

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
