No longer do we have to waste countless sheets of paper, rush to the copier during our planning periods, or print out class sets of printables that students can share instead.

We may not need to reinvent the wheel, but we can definitely reuse it again and again.

Check out my top 12 dry erase products available on Amazon right now.

A Recipe for Success: Turning Your Teaching Ideas into Innovative Classroom Resources

"Comparison is the thief of joy."


That is one of my all-time favorite quotes. Theodore Roosevelt (T.R. for those of you who love nicknames like me!) said those words a long time ago, but they still ring true today.

Do you ever feel bummed out because you have a fabulous new idea, but then you realize it's not totally "unique"? You find out another teacher somewhere has "been there, done that" already and you decide not to even bother sharing what you made with anyone else, afraid that your idea wasn't original enough to be worth anything?

Before you scrap the resource or decide not to share it with the world, you have to read this post!
