Welcome to The Puzzle Den. I started this blog so that I could share my love of puzzles with all of you! I believe that puzzles are an invaluable educational tool as well as a whole lot of fun! So through this blog, I hope to offer useful tips on using puzzles in education. I also want to share with you the plethora of puzzles that leak out of my brain.
You'll find a lot of free puzzles here on the blog, but you can find more puzzles at my Teachers Pay Teachers store also called The Puzzle Den. For the store I write math practice puzzles and holiday themed puzzles.
A little about me: I am a homeschool mom with 2 kids. I've been on this journey for 7 years now and enjoying it very much! I graduated from college in 1995 with a BA in Math and Computer Science from VA Wesleyan College. I worked in No VA for 5 years as a Software Engineer until I decided to stay home with my kids. As much as I adore my kids and love teaching them, I look forward to returning to school and the nine-to-five grind someday. But for now, I teach and learn with my kids and I write puzzles! Every day is an adventure!
