Hey, I am Colleen Gallagher from Teaching Heart and Teaching Heart Blog. I am what some call a dinosaur in the Teacher Internet World!!! LOL! I started Teaching Heart in 1998 and started selling resources in 2002 and in 2009ish I started the blog as a way to promote Teaching Heart. Still the mass majority of what you find on Teaching Heart is free! I love helping others and hearing about how my resources help other teachers. I am so thankful to God for all the gifts he has given me.
I live in PA with my wonderful children (10 and 6 year old) and husband. I have taught Special Education (K-3) and Second Grade. Currently I am working at home and working outside the home as a Preschool Discovery Teacher... PRESCHOOL!!!! Never thought I would do that! Let me tell you though - Classroom Freebies has come in handy for that new job!
I love being part of Classroom Freebies and I am grateful to Charity for starting a place where educators can share their talents with others by offering free resources. Charity amazes me with all the wonderful accomplishments she has made in the Teacher Internet World; Classroom Freebies being one of her many contributions. I have learned about so many wonderful blogs through Classroom Freebies. Many I have added to my reader or follow on Facebook! There are many wonderful sharing teachers out there with "Teaching Hearts" - my favorite kind of teacher!!!
Some of the resources I have used and enjoyed from Classroom Freebies - You must check these out!!!
Kayla's from Primary Junction - Bottle Cap Sight Word Tags which I have used with my daughter for extra practice.
I have used the adorable monster I Have Who Has Number Cards with some lovely Kindergarten kiddos from Caitlin at Kindergarten
Smiles. Caitlin has so many great printables, I had to send one of my friends her Candy Corn center here when I saw it.
Mrs. Miners Monkey Business is an incredible blog! Krissy has some great ideas and I have found myself on her blog as I look for activities for my new Pre-k class! I plan to use her Gingerbread Puzzle this week in my class.
Well, those are a few of my favorites; but, I am very Thankful to all who share!
Happy 5 Million To Classroom Freebies!
