I loved teaching for 30 years in a large urban district. I have taught for K to 8 with a particular fondness for 5th and 6th. A variety of settings kept life interesting. I have done resource, self contained, inclusion, co- teaching, school intervention specialist and regular ed. Due to budgets and student needs, I have always had to design and implement teacher made materials in my classroom and found great satisfaction in seeing these materials help students learn. I also loved sharing with other teachers. Collaboration is essential, teaching can be a lonely profession. It is now exciting to be able to publish these materials on TPT for others to continue to use.
Teach Every Child. Every level of student should have the opportunity to think, learn and, most importantly, participate in lessons with their peers. Modifications, accommodations and differentiated instruction help this to happen in your classroom. I use minimal clip art in most products so that you may utilize them with older struggling students, these students are often in inclusion classrooms and need work that looks like what their peers are doing. If you teach a self contained class or resource program the same holds true.
