Welcome to the Smarty Pants Teaching Blog!

Welcome to my blog! I'm glad you came by. Let me introduce myself. My name is Anna Colley. I am a Christian, a wife, a mother, and an educator. I taught 4th grade in a large metro Atlanta district for 11 years before taking a position last year as a school technology coordinator, my dream job. I now manage the technology program at a state-of-the-art public special-needs school serving preschoolers (ages 3 and 4) and young adults (ages 18-21). As a part of my job, I also teach computer lab to the 3 and 4 year old students. It has been an exciting change for me and a breath of fresh air! Now that I have a year under my belt, I'm feeling much more confident in my abilities as both an educational technology professional and a teacher of preschoolers.

I am also a Teachers Pay Teachers seller, which is a hobby that I really enjoy. I stumbled into this side job as a way to make a little extra money, and soon found that I really enjoy designing quality curriculum materials to share with other educators. Putting an extra polish on the teaching resources I was already using has been fun for me, and I have discovered a latent talent and interest in design in the process. I hope that you'll check out my materials, and let me know what you think!

Here are some FREEBIES that are available in my store:
