I'm a busy teacher who hates to plan! I love helping other teachers like me with practical classroom ideas and low-prep resources! I'm Certified in K-6 Elementary Education, K-12 ESOL, and 6-12 Family and Consumer Science. This is my eleventh year teaching in my home state of Florida, currently teaching third grade. I have also taught kindergarten, first grade, and second grade.
I love hands-on, active learning. I think kids learn best when they are DOING, not just watching and listening. I love making my own materials to use in my classroom!
