Meet Liz

Hi...I'm Liz Pledger! I'm a teacher blogger, wife, and Mommy to two sweet boys. Over the past ten years, I've taught Kindergarten, 1st grade, and been an Instructional Specialist for K-2 math/reading. Now I'm working from home, tutoring, presenting professional development, and raising my boys. In my free time, I enjoy running, volunteering at church, traveling, baking, reading, and spending time with family/friends.
The collaboration that takes place among teachers via the internet is truly remarkable. I find so many new and creative ideas online every day. I love sharing ideas on classroom management and organization. The mission of my blog is to make teachers' lives easier by creating and sharing high quality resources. Thanks for stopping by! Please feel free to e-mail me at with any questions or comments.
Reed is 5 and starts Kindergarten this year. Jack is four and loves preschool!
"Boise" is my original baby. She is my sweet 10-year old kitty.
