Here we go!

Hi everyone!!

I’m so excited to be starting my own teacher blog! I’ve been teaching for soooo long now, that I needed to do something new to reinvigorate my teaching. I’m using this blog to be accountable to YOU, my readers/fellow teachers, as well as a way to organize my ideas and materials! I’m new to this blogging, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest world, but WOW am I impressed!! There are SO many creative and passionate teachers out there & I LOVE how everyone is willing to share ideas and materials!! YOU are motivating me to continue creating and finding meaningful ways to make teaching joyful!!

The name of my blog, “Tried and True Teaching Tools” came from the many years I’ve taught credential candidates and worked with teachers. I’ve been told numerous times, “You should sell/publish your materials.” Everything I share with you has been tested and used successfully (tried & true!) with my students.

Kudos to Kassie over at Designs by Kassie for working with me to design my blog. (And the cutest business cards ever!!) She Is AMAZING & INCREDIBLE!! She is so talented and totally gets a feel for what you need (even when I didn’t know what I needed!). Be sure to check her out!! 

I hope you find my blog helpful; please follow, comment, share, etc!! I can’t wait to connect with all you amazing teachers!!


  1. Hey!! Thanks for popping over to my page for the giveaway. I thought I would stop by and welcome you to the blogging world! ;) I am now a follower and I can't wait to read about some of these "tried and true" teaching tools- since I am only a second year teacher.
