Jill McEldowney and Cathy Henry are educators who have a passion for helping other teachers. They have created The Curriculum Corner to help other educators find creative yet meaningful resources that weave the Common Core State Standards into their curriculum. The best part for teachers is that everything is free! The site is intended to always be a work in progress as new trends or ideas in instruction develop.
