About This Blog
From Under the Teacher’s Desk (FUTD) is a blog dedicated to helping educators and improving education for all. On this blog, you will find posts containing lesson ideas, resources, and topics affecting how we teach and learn today. It is FUTD’s hope that through interaction with these topics, you can help improve education for all.
Where FUTD provides some resources and ideas for the classroom, its real goal is to help create an active and informed teaching community. In original posts, FUTD will seek to inform its readers about new developments in education and challenge how we think about teaching and learning. But it can’t do it alone. Grab a desk and join the conversation!
