In a classroom full of students there is no 'one size fits' all learning style, so my teaching style varies to meet the needs of all of my students. The resources presented are straight to the point and ready for implementation. You aren't purchasing any fluff, irrelevant picture pages, large font instructions, or unnecessary pages to divert from what you are truly in search of utilizing. I often ask myself, "Is it cute, or does it count?". I want to share resources that count, resources that you, the expert in what your students need, can immediately put to use in your classroom and aid in student learning.
