  • Welcome, my name is Kimberly Burke and I created this wiki space to house all of the wonderful information and websites that I use or aim to use someday. My goal is to share this site with as many teachers as I can, in hope that they will find something new to use with their students. I have used many of these sites so feel free to let me know if the site has closed or if you know of one that should be added. I welcome the collaboration from all. Thanks to Jen Wagner for the shout out at Virtcon2013!

If you only had time to check a few blogs, these ae three that I love to follow.

Credits and recognition go to the seminars that I have attended by BER (Bureau of Education & Research) and Saint John Fisher School, ICE and NICE, and my fellow PLN's on twitter and of course, all the wonderful teachers that love to share resources. I also credit my lucky finds just from my own professional readings and research.
