The Mind Behind the Blog

My name is Terri Eichholz, and I have been an educator in San Antonio, TX, for 29 years. I began my career as a 5th grade teacher, specializing in teaching science.  My next adventure was as a teacher of gifted students in grades K-5 for 19 years. More recently, I was a S.T.E.A.M. Master Teacher for grades 4-12. I have recently retired from classroom teaching (December, 2019) – but not from education!

Through social networking and professional development opportunities, I regularly seek new ideas for engaging students. In return, I try to share with other educators anything that works well. My hope is that you will find this to be a helpful resource, and that you will feel free to contribute your own ideas as well.

I am continuing to be involved in education by working as a freelance writer and providing professional development.  If you are interested in hiring me for either of these, you can contact me at or tweet @terrieichholz.  You can also view more information on my LinkedIn profile.

  1. love your site- would love to chat with you sometime ! I am a retired educator who has begun an eduational nonprofit after seeing the need to customize learning for some K-2nd grade primary school children before they get discouraged with school (at such a young age !!!) Jeannie in Georgia

  2. Hi Terry,

    I was surprised to see a bulletin board that I made in college on your blog! I am glad that you like it! I am eager to try some of the items on your website as well! Thanks for the support!

  3. Terri,
    I absolutely love your ideas and postings, and I look forward to reading them every day. I have gifted 1st through 8th and three schools, so I think our circumstances are similar. Many of your offerings have saved me and inspired me. Please know how very much I appreciate you and what you do.

      1. Extremely good content, I had previously entered a few comments, and always hope to inspire others. I looked for a few seconds to email direct.
        If that does not happen, it’s not an issue – maybe you can find me?
