The Mind Behind the Blog

Terri Eichholz

My name is Terri Eichholz, and I am a teacher in San Antonio, TX.  I taught gifted students in grades K-5 for 19 years. Before that, I taught 5th grade for 8 years.  Like my students, I love a challenge and I love to learn something new.  I have recently taken a job in SAISD as a S.T.E.A.M. Master Teacher, and hope to have many new adventures to share this year!

Through social networking and professional development opportunities, I regularly seek new ideas for engaging my 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 also work as a freelance writer and consultant.  You can contact me at or tweet @terrieichholz.

  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?
