Welcome to the Pocketful of Centers Blog!

Welcome to my very first blog post!  My name is Pam Ballingall and I am the creator of Pocketful of Centers!  I am a teacher certified in Early Childhood and Elementary Education.  I began my teaching career in 1993.  I have taught Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten and Readiness.  I have always created hands on materials for my students.  In 2004 I started as a freelance writer with my favorite teaching magazine, The Mailbox.  I started a kindergarten website in 2000, The Teacher's Room and Pocketful of Centers opened it's virtual doors in 2009.  I love creating materials and sharing them with teachers across the country and across the world!

I married my husband in 2000 and we have two beautiful daughters!
