Free Worksheet Wednesday

I’ve been creating resources for special education teachers for a long time. I started on teacherspayteachers back in August 2012. At first, it was just a hobby and a way to share some of the things I had created and were working so effectively in my own classroom. It was fun, but certainly not my primary focus.

Then in 2014, my family made a big move from NC to PA. At first, I had planned to continue teaching and transfer my license once we were settled. But, my son who was 18 at the time, had a more difficult time with the transition than we were prepared for. I soon realized that I was going to need to be home to help him more. But, I missed the classroom and working with other students. I needed a way to feel connected and still important in the world of special education. So, I re-focused my efforts on my TPT store, Special Needs for Special Kids.

I spent the next 5 years fully immersed in creating resources that would engage and support students like my son, intellectually and behaviorally challenged. Jimmy was my tester of all things. I would have him try to complete the activities, watch for difficulties or lack of interest, and make some tweaks. I watched my store grow from 75 resources to now almost 450.

Over the years, I have interacted with hundreds of teachers through email and text. I have watched their excitement grow as they realize how having the right tools can make your job not only easier but so much more exciting and rewarding. I am so thankful to all of these teachers who have reached out to share their experiences with me. It kept me connected and feeling like I still had something of value to add.

I am always looking for ways to do more, give more, offer more in the way of free resources. I try to offer something of value here on my blog every Monday, and I know that has impacted many of you in a big way. But, sometimes teachers need something QUICK and EASY. Sometimes you just need a worksheet. And, how much better if it is a FREE one????

So, every Wednesday, I will be sending out a free worksheet to all of my email subscribers at 6:00 am EST. Hopefully, it is something you can download before school, print off, and have ready to go that day. So far, I have been overwhelmed with simple thank you’s and emails with a smile emoji.
