Have you ever admired other teachers’ websites and wished you had the know-how to create one for your classroom? For years I wished I had a class website. I had tried my hand at creating one using both FrontPage and Dreamweaver, and even though I’m pretty good with technology, I gave up in frustration. The system my district provides is easy to use, but every site looks nearly the same. Then two years ago this past June, I stumbled upon Weebly for Educators. Within 30 minutes, I had a class website up and running that I was proud of. Today, I’ll share with you a simple solution to creating a class website that will definitely help make you a 21st-century teacher.
