    I've spent years organizing all of my teaching ideas and have tried a few different methods. It FINALLY dawned on my this morning that I just need to put everything on a website. Basically I'd like to create one to organize my ideas, lessons, and resources by content area. So I'd have a math section and then everything I use to teach money, fractions, counting, decomposing, etc.

    I have never created a website before and have no idea where to begin. Can anyone direct me to some resources?

    Hi, you can search on Internet, where in you will surely get some help & guidelines on how to design your website. There are many resources that give great information about designing a website.

    I am building mine this summer using Weebly. It's VERY user friendly for those of us who have no experience building websites :)

    Our school system has an instructional technology specialist who will help with things like this. In fact, she just had a free workshop where teachers could begin a website. Maybe your system has someone like this.

    you can build a relatively simple one using yahoo page builder. You have to sign up for a yahoo account and set up a webpage through there. Then there is an application that you can download that lets you build a page from a template.

    I use 1and1. It is fairly simple once you learn how. There are video how-to manuals that are very helpful. It cost me 25 for 6 months. They let you create your own domain name too. I am really enjoying it.

    We are currently using google sites. It is free, you just need to obtain a gmail account (which is also free) and from your email account select "sites" from the top menu. There is a tutorial that can help you set everything up.
