I have had the opportunity to teach Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 3rd grade. It has been so rewarding to see many "littles" come into my classroom, learn and grown, and leave as wiser more confident kiddos. I love to create unique resources to help increase my students understanding and help my classroom run more smoothly. The resources in my store are ones I have used in my classroom and saw great success in improving student learning.
Working in a low income school for the entirety of my career has challenged me to develop lessons, create materials, and change up my teaching style from year to year and even week to week. I begin most lessons with a whole group review and energizer, while teaching the meat of my reading, math, and writing lessons in a small group format.

I have a degree from Iowa State University in Art & Design. Following graduation I decided teaching was my calling and my passion, and I went back to school for Elementary Education at The University of Iowa.
