It's teacher appreciation week and there are lots of great teachers out there to choose from to honor with this great linky I discovered this on Diane's blog at Fifth in the Middle:
I have met so many wonderful people through blogging and I cannot wait to meet them in "real life" this summer in Vegas.
One of those people is Deb at Crafting Connections.
I'm not sure if Deb knows this or not, but she has been like a mentor to me.
I have learned so much from her about blogging just by reading hers. I always get great ideas every time I read her blog!
Her ideas for teaching concepts in a "crafty" way always appeal to kids with various needs. She is great at breaking down concepts with her anchor charts and making them accessible as well as fun. Whether the concept is context clues or perspectives - Deb has a creative way to teach it!
Plus, she is just a nice person. She has answered my questions, invited me to join in celebrations and even helped me review/edit a product or two!
So Deb, I appreciate you very much! Thank you for being a great bloggy friend and inspiration!
