I have been teaching for 5 years, and have loved every minute of it. I started out as a substitute in Kindergarten, and then got my first full-time teaching job in 2nd grade. I loved how my 2nd graders were more independent, but I missed the silly, imaginative, and eager-to-please personalities of my Kindergarteners. That's when I found myself teaching First--and I love the happy medium! I make it my mission to make learning fun and memorable while still helping my students become autonomous thinkers. I am a part-time photographer and graphic designer and a full-time stay-at-home mom! I make invitations, business cards, flyers, t-shirts, etc. while I'm also juggling raising my three little ones. My obsession with TPT began as I was searching for products for my own kids to help them practice skills on the weekends and over the summer. I soon came to realize, "Hey, I can make things like this myself!" I joined forces with my sister, Renee, and Fixed on First was born soon after!
Learning should be memorable and hands-on. If you walked into my classroom, you would see students engaged in fun, student-led activities that cater to target skills. You would see kids helping and teaching one another what they've learned.
