I have been teaching for almost 10 years and during that time, have also run several home businesses which I've been able to use to contribute to a wide variety of fun activities in the classroom. I have taught soap and lip balm making classes to children and adults. I have operated a graphic design business for over 4 years and have taught Adobe Illustrator along with many other computer programs to students of varying ages. I also have worked closely with special needs students for many years.
I view myself as a facilitator of education. I actively work to collaborate with my students in order to ensure lessons with high levels of student interest. I feel that it’s important to ask guided questions that lead students to discovering their own answers. I help my students to construct their own learning by using techniques such as finding analogies between new and old information, problem solving, looking for patterns, hands-on activities, and determining the relevance to their own lives.
I have achieved the Silver Level on Zazzle, where I sell my graphic designs.

Welcome to Little Monster's world. He's cute, fun, and always learning with his monster friends. Bring Little Monster into your classroom and have him help out with classroom and behaviour management, fun lessons, and more. Your students will love the Little Monster worksheets. I absolutely love working with children and have 2 of my own. I have been teaching for almost 10 years and during my time spent at home when I had my children, I focused on my graphic design business. I love that TPT allows me to bring both of my passions together. I hope you enjoy the Little Monster classroom resources.
