I am new to blogging, but have been INSPIRED by so many other AMAZING teachers, that I decided to give it a try.  My BLOG title came about because the "paisley" design is a classy pattern of scrolls, swirls, flowers and dots that change every so slightly as it is repeated.....just reminded me of teachers sharing of ideas!  The apple is an obvious symbol for all teachers out there that do what they love doing!

My goal is to share my passion for teaching, creative ideas, memorable teaching experiences, effective lessons (freebies and Teachers-Pay-Teachers), special student moments (out of the mouths of students), teacher tidbits that have helped make me a better teacher (organization ideas, my favorite things I love to use in the classroom), and a little about my special family....they motivate me to be a better wife, mom, and TEACHER!  

So, follow along if you have a passion for what you do.....Together we CAN make a difference!
