I have been drawing and creating my whole life and really want to create designs that have a purpose. From time to time my sister-in-law has me create designs for her classroom. She currently teaches 1st grade in Oklahoma and is one of the reasons I have branched out to Teachers Pay Teachers. I love the designs I create, are helping her out and now other teachers too. It really excites me to be able to use my skills to help teachers and also help them create products to sell!
All educational resources sold in the Ellison Reed Teachers Pay Teachers store, are created in collaboration with my sister-in-law who is a 1st grade teacher in Oklahoma. She sends me a request for a project and I create it for her. This means educational resources have a teacher author, teacher approval and in classroom use. My part is the creative side of the project and putting it all together. All clip art and pattern papers are creations I come up with to help my sister-in-law out and other teachers too.
