I love teaching my little friends each day! I have taught in multiple Title I schools bringing engaging, effective teaching to English as a Second Language Learners. I began teaching third grade but have found my "sweet spot" in kindergarten which I currently teach.
I incorporate differentiated, research-backed strategies to reach all levels of learners. I work with primarily ELL students so using visual cues, modeling, independent practice and scaffolding is HUGE. You will see a lot of those tools for teaching in my products... because what's good for ELLs is effective for ALL students!

I am a kindergarten teacher who loves to create for TPT (it's truly my creative outlet), drink ALL the coffee, decorate my classroom, and read fashion blogs. The Teacher Dollar Shop is a place where you can feed you TPT addiction without going totally broke. We're teachers. Our resources should be affordable. Thanks for coming! -Ashley
