  • Just Mercy: A Challenge to Be the Change You Want to See in the World

  • Summer PD with the Folger Shakespeare Library

    So for the last two weeks, I’ve been immersed an online class with the Folger Shakespeare Library. One of my professional development goals was trying to better myself and knowledge of my content. Usually, the Folger does in-person summer institutes.

Hi! I am Teresa!

I am a high school English teacher. (I've also spent three years as Director of Instructional Technology.) I love using tech in the classroom (when appropriate), and even though I'm back to teaching full-time I still really like working with adults! So, the Techy Teacher offers free tutorials that you can use with your students, sample lesson plans, and many other resources. If your needs are greater, I offer other services (that have a fee), including lessons on how to create online quizzes, lessons on how to create websites and blogs (and trainings on how to use them), lessons on how to use applications or websites, professional development workshops, and one-on-one mentoring. The Techy Teacher can work with groups or individuals. E-mail to learn more.
