TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught special education PreK-8th grade for six years and general education 4th grade for five years. I also served as chair of the academically talented committee. I'm now a homeschooling mom of six little blessings!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe learning should be something students are excited about. The best learning is when students don't know they are learning because they are having too much fun! I love to use multi-sensory, hands-on activities with manipulatives. I strive to create products that will motivate students to learn through engaging activities.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

One time when I was teaching a unit on chemical reactions to my fourth grade class, I accidentally lit the floor on fire! My cheeks were bright red as I quickly stomped out the flames with my dress shoes. The kids, of course, thought this was the greatest thing that could have happened and to my surprise the parents just offered to buy me a fire extinguisher! I learned that teaching often involves taking risks and being flexible. It won't always go according to plan but sometimes the best teaching takes place in the mishaps, for we learned a great deal about safety precautions that day! This also became a shining teacher moment for me because I learned that my students' parents loved my teaching style and trusted me despite the mishaps!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a Bachelor's degree in Special Education: Cognitive Abilities K-12 and Elementary Education K-8 as well as a Masters degree in Special Education: Learning Disabilities K-12.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I love creating a wide variety of resources. My store contains primarily K-5 resources that span from special education to academically talented with a little clipart sprinkled in :)

Teachers Pay Teachers is an online marketplace where teachers buy and sell original educational materials.
