I taught kindergarten and first grade for four years in Texas. While I was teaching, I started my Teachers Pay Teachers store in 2011, then I quickly abandoned it. I stopped teaching in 2013 to stay at home with my children. There was so much that I missed about teaching, that I knew could be fulfilled by doing TpT again. I just recently (March 2015) decided to make this a major priority in my life. So here I am. :)
I am a strong believer that learning should be a fun, hands-on experience for students, where they take an active part in their education. The combination of all of these things will set students up for continued success in the years to come.

I received my Bachelors in Psychology at Texas Tech University. My original plan was to be a psychologist. I was a year into getting my Masters in Psychology when I realized that is not what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I switched fields and made the jump into education. I am almost finished getting my Masters in Education. I have completed all of my course work. I just need to complete my dissertation.
