New Feature in the Gazette
June 1, 2008
The following is a cumulative list of blogs submitted by their teacher-creators, posted in order of receipt. The newest additions appear later in the list. Take a look!
My interests, travels, and activities. One of my interests, since I retired from teaching, has been photography, so you will see a lot of images here, and good ones, if I do say so myself.
Yakima Valley Daily Photo One photo a day sharing my local area. Yakima Valley Daily Photo is a member blog of the City Daily Photo group.
Mainly papercrafting and rubberstamping. I have been involved in this hobby for nearly 14 years and have had several of my creations published on art magazines. Sometimes I post ideas on my blog that teachers could use in their classrooms.
Searching for Intelligent Life
Searching for Intelligent Life often profiles persons and subjects that are of interest to me, and may well be interesting to a variety of other folks as well. Teachers, even those not in classrooms, just keep on teaching and learning.
My blog is about Peaceful living and creating a great life.
Post Cards from the Northwest
My blog is photos and comments about the photos I take, mostly nature and things like that -- like a postcard.
Helena Harper's Blog
About my two poetry collections, why I write, kindness, who is family, unsung heroes, desire for peace, what we can learn from problems and difficulties etc. A high school teacher for 20 years, I have also written two collections of poetry: "It's a Teacher's Life...!" and "Family and More - Enemies or Friends?"
A Better Idea: ABI Grading
Teaching using an ABI grading policy based upon Corbett, Wilson, and Williams’ book, Effort and Excellence in Urban Classrooms: Expecting – and Getting – Success with all Students (2002)
A group of children’s writers celebrate books for young people and enriching our world through the power of narrative, connecting with teachers and librarians who have similar interests.
Lynn L. Caruso, Mary Douthitt, Mary Cronk Farrell, Kelly Milner Halls, Clair Rudolf Murphy, Meghan Nuttall Sayres
I'm a teacher and veteran of the Iraq war. I've set up a blog to discuss what I think our schools can learn from the military.
Teach with Picture Books
My frequently updated blog features picture book recommendations, summaries, and cross-curricular extensions. Sites focusing upon teaching with picture books are also reviewed.
Out of the Classroom & Into the Library
This is a brand new blog for librarians and teachers, encouraging dialog between teachers and librarians about how they can work together to ease their workloads and to benefit their students. Library Musings is my more informal blog where I muse about books I’m reading, technology issues I’m facing, etc. I welcome an audience of fellow librarians and avid readers.

Greetings from the Heart
I am a 2nd grade teacher by day and a card maker by night. My blog features a variety of papercraft projects. I love to use scrapbooking with my students when they are making their own projects. Best of all, the kids are excited too!
Creating Art with Kids
Need ideas for art ideas for the elementary classroom? This blog is for you! Each post describes an art lesson, lists the materials needed, explains the procedure, and includes helpful comments and suggestions. Photographs of actual student work samples are also included with each post.
Newbie SPED Teacher
My blog is all about the exciting first year in a new teaching position of seventh grade special education.
My blog focuses on life in the small city; it actually reruns the weekly column that I write for the local newspaper. Topics range from education to politics to history to daily life.
