One of the things that I have known/learned about myself is that I am a SERIOUS pack rat. I save just about everything...esp if it has to do with teaching There are still boxes at my mom's house full of high school work that I did that I thought I might use one day in my classroom. I have saved all of my notebooks full of notes from college...in case I used them in my classroom. I saved all the worksheets and articles and textbooks too...in case I used them in my classroom. One problem that I kept running into was how to save stuff on my computer that I have seen. I have many folders entitled "Possible Teaching Ideas". But you know what the sad thing is? I don't go to these sources as often as I know I should.
I think the reason why is because it takes forever to find something good, or what I am specifically looking for. I am victim to the instantaneous search...and the fact that I will be going to bed about 5 hours after I get home from work so things need to be fast (how sad is that!...a post for a different day). But now with my good friend Pinterest....I pin it to my board and then I can search my board. And sadly, I have a bit of a better memory of my Pinterest stuff. I don't know if it is because it is recent, visual, or what.
Amongst all of this love affair with Pinterest...I have gained so many followers that I don't know but I know are fellow teachers. That is just a cool thing to me :) So if you want more ideas go to my Pinterest boards: http://pinterest.com/knh808/
