Every once in a while, a new technological tool for educators comes along that's just, well… revolutionary. For me, Pinterest is one of those powerful and amazing tools. I'm a visual person and if I can see a photo or image of a really great idea, I feel like I truly understand. Watching at my Pinterest feed each day fill up with great classroom management tips, project ideas, and seasonal activities has helped and motivated me bring so much more creativity and innovation into my own classroom.
The wonderful people at Pinterest have seen how educators have responded to their site and they have teamed up with many of your favorite Edu-Bloggers (or should I say Edu-Pinners?) to bring you Teachers on Pinterest. Pinterest has created a set of boards just for teachers that are jam-packed with classroom ideas. There are specific grade level boards for grades Pre-K-6, plus additional boards for education blogs, classroom decor, management and more!

Right now I am taking all of my newly discovered inspiration with me to school so I can get my classroom ready for a new batch of Kinders. You can follow my inspiration as I pin to the Teachers on Pinterest Kindergarten board. Stop by, get great ideas, and repin!
