Thank you so much for the quick fix of the secured printing on two products! Everything works great now. Thank you also for the offer of the free product. I would like "States of Matter: A Close Reading Activity using Informational Text." Do you have my email address or do I need to publicly print it here? Thank you!

The same problem has occurred with "Common Core Cell Structure: A Close/Critical Reading of Informational Text" with not being able to print, but can be saved. I emailed you today and you responded that you could fix the problem with the other product. Please fix this one also. Thanks

Just purchased a couple items from your store and no trouble opening and printing all of them except the "Scientific Process Skills: A Close Reading of Informational Text". It downloads as a "secured pdf" so can be saved but can't be printed. Bought hundreds of dollars of stuff on TpT but never had this problem. Can you resolve this? Thanks, J. L.

As a teacher in Special Education, I am given very little materials. I was wondering if I were to purchase from you, what order would you suggest when teaching astronomy. Although I will be teaching multiple grades, I would like to maintain a 4th/5th grade level if possible. Thankyou

Hi Lisa,
Sorry for the late response. I like to start with day and night then move into moon phases and Earth's place in the universe. I am putting together a fifth grade unit as we speak for my teachers. It should be completed by next week. My Simple Astronomy resource is aligned the way I taught Space and Universe. A lot of the activities in the resource I used with K-4. You just have to adapt for the grade being taught. Does this help? I can be more specific if needed.

I love your product. It is simple to read quickly. I am going to buy the third, fourth fifth bundle (I teach LD students /multiple grades). Do you offer a bundle for K,1,and 2 in the same format? ( 2 column color coded). Did you do one for 6th?

FYI--I lowered the prices and will be having a sale the next four days 20% off.

Hi. I do offer a K-6 bundle, a K-2 bundle and all can be purchased individually. They are all color coded with a two column format. Not all pages are two column due to font size and amount of standards. They all have check boxes.

I tried emailing you at the address you gave below; it won't go through. I've now downloaded the ppt 3 times and each time it is stuck in slideshow. As a result I haven't been able to save it where I want to. My email is wataylor49@gmail.com. I'd appreciate hearing back and perhaps receiving the ppt via email.

Thank you,

Hi. What system are you using? I can always email you a copy and if need be troubleshoot over the phone. It should've just downloaded as a PPT file and not stuck in slide show mode. My email is dgeis@washoeschools.net. Thanks, Doug

Hey how is it going? I have been making quite a few sales. I have made about $150 since Jan.. A colleague of mine is averaging about $100 a month. We both agree you need to make bigger packages that you can sell for $8-10 a pop. Hope SSES is going well.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been recently published with the Smarter Balance Consortium. My published resource "Eight Close/Critical Reading Strategies that support the CCSS" can be found in my store. I have taught K-8 mostly in the area of science and 4 years in regular ed.. The last two years I worked with teachers and students implementing the Common Core State Standards. I now support teachers and students in implementing the Next Generation Science Standards as a STEM Coordinator.You will find a lot of CCSS and NGSS resources in my TpT store.. I have taught 5/6 regular ed. and PreK-8 science for several years. Although I am in classrooms daily modeling, teaming and supporting teachers I plan on returning to the classroom full time in the next few years after I have supported in building capacity. I love teaching and working with kids! I also work with a colleague (Mark) and we sell some of our resources in literacy and math as well. Thank you for visiting my store. Doug

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is student centered with an emphasis on inquiry based instruction. I would like to say my style resembles one of a constructivist style of teaching. I believe in exploratory learning with a purpose.
