students walking out of a libraryWelcome!  Dr. Blunt and I compiled the links on this site to give you a practical toolbox for your student teaching this semester.  We hope the resources listed here will spark ideas for new teaching techniques, help you discover books and other resources for your students, and find teaching kits or lesson plans you can adapt to your classrooms.

You may wish to start your professional development with the Pennsylvania Department of Education Standards Aligned System Page, and use their standards to evaluate and adapt the ideas that you find on this site.

Please note that you can continue to use most of the resources listed on this site after you graduate and start your teaching job.

Please feel free to drop by, call, or email me whenever you need any help searching!

Best of Luck on Your Teaching this Semester!
