Just a quick post to tell you that Pinterest has decided to give teachers a home of their very own on Pinterest. Pinterest has started a bunch of teaching-related boards and chosen a different teacher-pinner to host each one. I wasn’t lucky enough to be selected for that honor, but the alway amazing Charity Preston was!
