I am Lori Wolfe, the teacher behind Fun to Teach. I live in Ashland, Oregon with my husband Sunny. Oh gosh, my Sunny and I have been married longer than we have not been! I love to garden and play around with mass plantings. Gardening is like teaching and every year I get to recreate my garden just like my classroom! It blows my mind, but I have taught for 23+ years. Time really does fly when you are having fun. When I began teaching I was head over heels with bilingual (English and Spanish) 1st and 2nd grades. I graduated to third grade some years later and finally moved to teaching English to English language learners. That is when I found my true calling! ❤️. The creation of this website and my 2 blogs help me keep my educational practices sharp, my resources fresh and the motivation for teaching, dynamic and FUN! I’m so excited to share my love for teaching, resources, and ideas with you.
