I am a superintendent of the 4-H Decorations project. In this project 4-Hers create a decoration of their choice within certain guidelines. Over the years I've seen some very creative items entered by the kids. When talking to the kids about their projects this year I learned that many of them were inspired by Pinterest. ...which got me to thinking about my own
obsession enjoyment of the world of digital pin boards.
If I need a new recipe, ideas for baby shower decorations, or instructions on how to tie a scarf I know that I can find tons of great pins linking to tons of great websites & blogs. How did we ever live without Pinterest???
As every teacher knows, Pinterest isn't just a place for quinoa recipes & photos of J Crew clothes. It's the new Professional Development! Professional Development that is free & available 24/7! Even my district has recognized Pinterest as a valuable resource for teachers because they unblocked last year ~ yup, we can look at Pinterest on our school computers. :-)
I thought I'd share a few of my many, many pins. If you want to see more, you can follow me HERE. Enjoy!
