When I started as a teacher over 10 years ago, I had a group of wonderful teachers to indoctrinate and support me as a new teacher. I was given a binder of awesome resources they put together for me with a ton of great ideas and helpful activities and lessons. I was thrilled to have some great resources right at my fingertips—all free! I was ecstatic that I didn’t have to spend my meager teaching income (coming off an even worse income as a waitress) to build my library of resources. I was over the moon when I discovered these generous teachers had spent their time to make me feel welcome with a gift of handouts, worksheets, and pre-built lessons from some great publishers!
