It's About Time... for Teachers!

Teachers Pay Teachers

I couldn't have said it better! See the picture above? I got this from Becca Sutton, a fellow teacher who is creative in the classroom and shares her printables, worksheets, and lessons at TeacherspayTeachers just as I do. I love that teachers are now empowered to use their expertise of being right in the classroom with real students to be able to create their own teaching printables which can also benefit other teachers. We are finally moving away from an industry of non-pedagogic, broad text books and guides towards teacher-created, student centered classroom resources.  Teachers know what their students need, what other teachers need and therefore, teachers are naturally able to provide uniquely tailored resources that work in their classroom for other teachers to benefit from. It's definitely time for teachers to be fully appreciated for all that they do!

I am inviting you to consider sharing your own classroom printables on Teachers pay Teachers. You may be able to earn some extra money along the way which is always helpful in offsetting expenses.

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!
