Welcome to 365 Days of Teaching!
My name is Amy, and I am a recent graduate with a shiny new degree in Exceptional Education. I have a great passion for crafts and love creating and sharing my products! For the past six months or so, I have been blogging away about every single one of my crafts and recipes over at:
My one follower of my blog and good family friend got me an amazing book for graduation... "365: A Daily Creativity Journal". This book is all about a creative guy who made a skull out of something different every day for a year, like out of snow, or sewing, or cross-stitching, or just out of whatever he found in his environment. In the book, he presents a challenge for the reader to choose a subject and create a craft that follows that theme every day for a year. He gives 365 suggestions to follow as well.
Can I just say, I was beyond excited about this book. I couldn't think of a better present for myself.
As you can see from the title of my blog, I have chosen to accept this challenge and theme each one of my crafts around teaching. I am running head-first into my first year of teaching and I am going to need all the creativity I can muster to create the materials that I will use for the next many years. So, each day I will create something that I can use in my classroom; whether a decoration or a supply or an activity I can do with the kids.
Because I'm still in that job-looking stage and don't yet have an age that I will be teaching, my first crafts will be geared towards the summer camp I work at over the summer.
I'm excited to start this year-long project, and I look forward to all the things I will create! I hope to gain a few readers so that I can reach out and give ideas for other teachers or lovers of crafts.
