Minds in Bloom is thrilled to welcome Cassi Noack to the team. Come back soon for more information about Cassi! See her products by clicking her name in the categories to the left.

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.
