The Teachers' Lounge - Developed By Julie O'Keefe

It does not take much to make a teacher feel like they are alone in their quest to help the students before them. This site is a collaborative effort to remind ourselves that we are a community of educators and it is through our shared vision and expertise that we will create the greatest opportunities for our students, their families and the communities that we serve. 

This site is a dynamic entity, gaining depth and force from the members who use it, add to it, and seek refuge it in. The sub pages are broken down into curriculum areas, with grade levels noted on each of those pages. The blog features Julie’s thoughts and insights based upon her experience and the great work she witnesses through the teachers of McGrath Elementary in Worcester. 

To share your wisdom and experience in the Lounge, please email lessons, handouts, and resources to julie@juliekeefe.comhttp:
