I have been teaching first grade for 22+ years and creating for TpT for 5+ years! I have spent many hours creating new games/activities for purchase but my best-seller is "I Can Speed Read" - something I put together one evening at the last minute. TpT has truly been a blessing to my family! It provides the "little extra" that we haven't previously had access to!
I am always trying new things! I LOVE pinterest and it is where I got the idea to begin creating useful documents for colleagues. I recently began using Daily 5 full force in my classroom as well as Guided Reading and Guided Math! I love what my classroom has become!
I am "honored" to teach our future and "awarded" daily with their smiles, 'a-ha' moments, and funny stories!
I have a BA from Hastings College and an MA from Wayne State College. I am 3 hours from an ESL endorsement from Wayne State College. I'm currently teaching EDU340 Early Reading at Wayne State College and love the collective gasp that I hear when I share how much I've earned in my short time on TpT.
I am the mother of 2 beautiful girls, Gabriella and Cecelia - the most important job yet! My husband and a stay-at-home-dad, Chad, is my #1 follower! I couldn't do any of this without him!
