    Does anyone know any good free or cheap website design sites for teacher? I have a free website that my college provided for us. At this point it has become more of a teaching portfolio and I would like to make a website that is more class centered something with weekly homework assignments, colander, newsletters, links to educational games, and I'm sure there are plenty of other uses for a class website. I've been plying around with the free 30 day trial on www.teacherweb.com but I'm not fond of the way it seems like just anybody can click on the copyright date and get into the administrative portion of the website.

    So does anyone know of any other good design sites?

    I use teacherweb, and I love it! I think it is so well password protected that nobody can get in to my stuff. I love all the extras... the NewsFlash, slate and quizzes are fun for the kids and parents and encourage them to visit your site more often. I also moved my class blog to my site, so it's not on two different sites.

    I heard about a site called webnode from one of the posters here. I really like it. It's free and doesn't have ads on it. I'm just trying it out, but you can check out what I've done so far

    I also use webnode, after having a what could be disaster with freewebs, I think it's really easy to use.

    You can look at mine if you'd like
