I absolutely love teaching and feel very proud to be a teacher, especially in Brooklyn, New York where I was born and raised. I have been teaching all subject areas in an elementary classroom in New York City since 2005. I have taught kindergarten and third grade. I currently teach all subject areas as a general education public school teacher in Brooklyn. I have been developing, teaching, and administering common core aligned curriculum for many years now along with my colleagues and administration. I only sell products that I have used with my own students successfully.
I get bored of doing the same thing every day, so I like to mix things up in my classroom and try new things often. I use many methods and programs, including the workshop model, balanced literacy, the Teacher's College Reading and Writing Project (from Columbia University, NYC), EngageNY Common Core Math Curriculum, the Everyday Math Program, Common Core State Standards aligned lessons, Exemplars, IFL, and more! I believe all children have the right to an amazing education and all children have the ability to do their best if they are taught to try hard each day and feel motivated.

I love being a teacher! It is so much more than just a career to me. It is what I am meant to do. I hope you enjoy all of my products that have been tested and used with my own students. My only wish is that my products make your life easier and are enjoyed by your students. I am so grateful to everyone who buys my products for their classrooms. P.S. You may also like to know that all of the profits I make on this website go directly into my children's college fund, so by purchasing my products, you are also helping three children go to college :)
