TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught students from grades K-8. As a classroom teacher, I taught mostly highly capable third and fourth graders, often creating curriculum to meet their needs. I have also taught technology and science to multiple grades. I am a published author of more than 120 nonfiction books for children on a variety of topics. I have written for Harcourt, Lucent, and Rosen, among others. I have also written 10 teacher resource books for Evan-Moor including the Critical and Creative Thinking Skills series, a set of 6 books that I developed for the publisher. In addition, many of the task cards from my TpT store were used to create Kagan Publishing’s Quiz, Quiz, Trade series. I am also an advisor for Boom Learning, an open marketplace for teacher-created mobile apps.

MY TEACHING STYLE

One of my most important mentors said that we should give students "Freedom within structure." I took that concept to heart and it has resulted in a motivating, challenging, and highly effective leaning environment. I think kids should love coming to school. That is how I taught when I was in the classroom and that is what I keep in mind when I create teaching resources for TpT. My goal is to create high-quality products that are easy to use and include some element or creative or critical thinking. Many of my products are also aligned to Common Core Standards.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I am an All Time Top Ten Seller on Teachers Pay Teachers and the #1 seller for grades 3-5. In July 2015 I was a keynote speaker at the Teachers Pay Teachers Conference in Las Vegas where I spoke to around 1,400 TpT teacher authors. I have also presented at every conference.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I hold a BA in Developmental Psychology and a K-8 Teaching Certificate from Western Washington University.
