I have been an elementary school teacher for the past twenty years in Chicago and Los Angeles. I have taught first, second, third, fifth, reading, creative writing, and art. I enjoy writing poetry which is accompanied with my nature photography. I love teaching, writing, and nature photography. I appreciate that TPT gives me an opportunity to share my work.
My Teachers Pay Teachers resources include: poetry ebooks, poetry readings, photography posters, educational posters, activity packs, bookmarks, student awards, graphic organizers, memory games, PowerPoints, classroom labels, greeting cards, holiday cards, and Common Core products. I really enjoy creating and sharing resources!
