TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I worked with students with special needs for over 25 years:

• Owned and taught in a private preschool

• Started a new program for middle schools students

• Taught in a junior high/high school program

• Began new services in a junior high/high school program

• Created a specialized alternative school program

• Was a PK-12 special education coordinator for a large district

MY TEACHING STYLE

As a special education teacher, my style was highly individualized.

A motto I adopted from the very beginning of my career summarizes my philosophy:

If a child cannot learn the way we teach, we must teach in a way the child can learn.

I used a lot of humor and genuine empathy in my classroom. Teaching is hard but so is being a student.

I genuinely respected my students...their strengths and their struggles. ♥ It was so powerful to put myself in their shoes.

I also genuinely respect ♥ you ♥ and all you do for your students.

While I am no longer in the classroom, I see you putting in so many hours, struggling with the increasing demands, and longing to have more time with your family and friends.

Please know that you are appreciated!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have provided printable resources to over 185,000 unique buyers since 2007.

It is an honor working for each one of you, and I greatly appreciate you allowing me to help you in making a difference for your students.

My 55,000+ feedback comments are without a doubt my greatest awards. I look forward to reading them each day and celebrating with you as you help your students learn and grow!

"This is an AMAZING resource for teaching fractions on a number line. Truly one of the best products I have found for scaffolding this skill. (fractions on a number line)"

On February 26, 2019, Antoinette R. said:

"I just taught my students how to use cards for addition practice at a math center. They were SO EXCITED when I pulled the cards out! These worksheets compliment the center very well and allows for even more practice on their own."

On March 5, 2019, Jessica E. said:

"This was a great resource to use to teach cause and effect to my 3rd graders. They grasped the content so much better using these worksheets!"

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

• BS in Education from Iowa State University

• MA of Special Education Consultation from University of Northern Iowa

• Director of Special Education Endorsement from University of Northern Iowa


ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Imagine having printable resources at your fingertips exactly what and when you need them.

During my teaching career, I frequently did not have a variety of quality resources to meet the individual needs of my students.

This is why I began creating educational resources.

If only TpT would have been around at that time! I would have been able to provided students with exactly what they needed at their level.

I also would have been able to save so much time which would have meant less nights and weekends and more family time with my three daughters.

Let's face it...the demands and expectations of today's teachers like you have only increased.

How are you supposed to keep up?

My store has over 2,000 printable resources to help you keep up and give you more time at home with family and friends.

I have always been a student advocate. Their success means every thing to me. And even though I am no longer in the classroom, I am still helping students succeed by creating quality resources.

In addition, over 55,000 of you have told me that I am making a difference in your lives as well. I am humbled.

This is exactly why I continue to create new resources and reach out to hard working teachers like you. I want to make a difference.

♥ I value your time.

♥ I value your efforts.

♥ I value your feedback.

♥ I value all you do for kids.

♥ I VALUE YOU.
