I have been teaching elementary school for 8 years, and taught 3-5 year-olds for 10 years before that. I have been researching and writing for 3 years to teach standards-based content in a way that I feel is very successful. I started writing the materials myself, due to a lack of materials in social studies with the right readability level. I have always loved to write, and now I've found a very useful outlet for myself as a teacher/writer, and hopefully other teachers and learners (aren't we all?) will enjoy my materials!
