As a Texas teacher, the products I make are designed around the standards for the state of Texas, known as the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and are carefully crafted to help students be successful on the Texas STAAR test. I use the rigor of the TEKS and released STAAR assessments as models and guides when putting together lessons and materials for my students. Thus, I am careful to post products that, in my judgment, address these standards. I am not affiliated in any way with these entities and any and all claims of alignment are my claims, not those of the groups behind the TEKS or STAAR test.
