    ❄️Are you in the giving spirit this holiday season, yet also looking for a way to do so without having it cost you more money and more time?

    We have a great idea for you - share a resource you’ve created or you use often in your classroom on Education Blueprint so that other teachers can learn about it too - and use it for their classroom management, classroom instruction, or their own personal professional development. 

    It takes less that 60 seconds to share and tag a tool that could help thousands of other educators teach better, and, most importantly, the more resources we know about as educators, the greater the opportunities we will have to present to learners in our classrooms without spending countless hours scouring the internet for what can serve us and our students well.

    Login and create your free account today. This platform is created for teachers, by teachers, and is funded through generous donations as a nonprofit organization. 


    Watch a quick video to learn more about how to add a resource.
