My name is Mel. I have been a classroom teacher in Australia since 2001. I started designing digital resources for teachers in 2005. I love doing both and think TpT is wonderful for bringing both worlds together for me!
I pride myself on creating a calm and happy classroom. I use various visual aids to promote positive behavior and like a good solid routine in the classroom! I like to see my students engaged in high quality learning experiences that they are excited about!
I received an Outstanding Entrants Scholarship to study a double degree at The University of Newcastle. I graduated from The University of Newcastle with first class honours, specialising in Early Childhood Education.
I have a double degree - Bachelor of Teaching/Bachelor of Social Science.
I am having so much fun designing high quality printable teaching resources and graphics that are classroom and teacher friendly! Please visit my 'sister-store' Graphics From the Pond'.
