Educators rave about interactive Teacher's Lounge with weekday surprises
LAKE FOREST, Calif. (August 20, 2012) – Teachers wishes do come true ... at least in the case of an exciting new education blog. Ellison, the company known for its pioneering impact in classroom die cutting, is now making a difference in teacher's lives with a special online blog to communicate and share information in a powerful and effective way.
The Ellison Teacher's Lounge promises to expand interactivity not just between Ellison and teachers, but also connect educators everywhere with products, ideas, videos, tips, savings, weekly contests and more.
"I just love the project videos," said Lisa D., elementary school teacher in Perry, GA. "They show exactly what you need to do and inspire you to take that idea even further with lessons for your own students and learning environment."
Users of the blog can expect to see a different theme each day, including Movie Monday, Tips for Tuesday, Winning Wednesday, Thrifty Thursday and Thank Goodness It’s Friday. Each Ellison blog contributor offers a different perspective on education based on their own unique classroom experiences, proven lesson plans, product tips, and merchandising knowledge.
"I like that the blog has a wide assortment of ideas," said Jessica D., an educator from Orange County, Calif. "The techniques aren’t all related to just one subject, but instead are geared toward education and learning in general. Plus I can easily relate the projects and stories to my own lessons. And who doesn’t love contests?"
"The blog is truly a resource-rich tool for teachers," said Sandi Genovese, educational consultant to Ellison and one of the early spokespersons for Sizzix, the sister crafting company of Ellison. "And while we do love to share our passion for die cutting, not all the ideas involve die cutting. Our goal is to deliver empowering lesson plans to teachers every way possible."
