We’re thrilled to announce an effort to support a community of creative, inspiring and hard-working people who make a difference to millions of kids everyday—teachers! We’ve teamed up with some brilliant elementary school teachers to launch Teachers on Pinterest, a hub where you’ll find everything from lesson plans for different grades, to classroom decorating ideas, and topics like fun with phonics. We’re also excited to work together with Edutopia—an online resource for educators—to build out the education-focused community on Pinterest.
In today’s information age, educators are being inundated with research, resources, and tools – all aimed at improving education, instruction, and student performance. How can educators sift through all this information to find resources that are worth one’s time and attention?
"California school districts having trouble getting their arms around the elephant known as Common Core now have a 60-page guide to help them focus.
"The first edition of the Leadership Planning Guide to implement the Common Core standards and assessments was published last week by the California County Superintendents Educational Services Association with help from other organizations representing the teachers, school boards, school administrators, charter schools and parents.
“The Planning Guide emphasizes a team approach to Common Core implementation and features quick links to a wealth of resources from California and across the nation,” said David Gordon, superintendent of schools for the Sacramento County Office of Education, which took a leading role in the publication. “It’s a quick read and should be helpful to districts well along the road to implementation as well as those just starting out.”

As anyone who has taken the pains to make a memorable PowerPoint presentation will tell you – the secret of the steak is in the sizzle. The sizzle also comes and stops at creativity. If you have creativity by your side, you can use PowerPoint as your canvas.
This Pinterest board is a place to find links to blog posts, websites, and resources to foster a warm, caring classroom. Many resources deal with classroom management because excellent management is at the heart of creating a caring classroom.
