Louisiana Teacher's Lesson Ideas

Should be YOUR stuff


Over the years, I have provided you with hundreds of lesson ideas, lessons, worksheets, activities, links to other things, on this site; and all I ask it that you send me at least ONE idea that YOU have. Click on your favorite project on your own computer and email it to me so that I can share it with other teachers who are looking for that “one” item that helps them through the day. I love the fact that you found something on this site that helps YOU. I just wish YOU would help me help others. Other teachers may like what your kids like. We ALL have to work together for the betterment of OUR students here in Louisiana.

This PAGE has been set up just for YOU. Don't leave it empty. I have added 14 items in the month of July so get with it!

Send it to or and help other teachers in need.
