Welcome to my new blog!

My name is Michelle and I have taught grades 5 and 6 in a low-income, rural neighborhood in Southern California.  Most years I have taught a Structured-English Immersion (SEI) class for English Learners.  As teachers, we pour all of our time and energy into our students, but it's exhausting when every night we go home and "reinvent the wheel" because we don't have access to the teaching materials that we need for our students.  I am creating this blog to help give time-saving, quality resources to upper-elementary teachers. The result is you spending more time with loved ones, communicating with parents, and building relationships with students.  Afterall, the student-teacher relationship is at the heart of all learning!

Thank you!  I look forward to sharing ideas with you!
