What The Wordy Teacher is All About!


I just want to give you a quick introduction to what The Wordy Teacher is all about.

My name is Amy Hirzel and I’m a nerdy secondary English teacher in Ohio.

I mostly share my knowledge and experiences from my own classroom to inspire and help out other teachers.

I’m especially interested in intelligently integrating technology, perfecting best practices, and changing things up in the classroom.

Teaching can feel like you’re on an island all by yourself , so I’m hoping to reach out to the education community and share ideas with other educators.

I’m a secondary English educator so most experiences are geared toward that, but almost all the strategies or technology reviews I post can be modified for any classroom.

A Little More about Me  

I’m  in love with the written and spoken word.

I’ve been a teacher for the past eight years and have made the brave choice to continue to be one for the foreseeable future.  I love having fun in the classroom and helping students go beyond what they believe is possible.

I’m obsessed with the smell of old books, planning for school (yea, I said it), and writing on good paper with good pens.  I also enjoy a good rugby game every now and then.

I own too many nonfunctional typewriters, watch too much Doctor Who (jokes…no such thing), and drink copious amounts of coffee.

I love what I do.
