I live in a little house on the side of a mountain in Asheville, North Carolina (which is, in my opinion, one of the coolest and funkiest cities around) with my sweet guy, Michael, and our pups, Petey and Finley. I spend most days working from my laptop to create meaningful and visually-appealing content for primary students of all abilities and I share my work with teachers from all over the globe.
Before I began creating and sharing resources with teachers, I was a first grade teacher in Baltimore, Maryland, and it was always my goal to create a space where my students felt loved, heard, safe, and supported.
I worked daily to make instruction hands-on, individualized, and successful for all students.
But it wasn’t always rainbows and unicorns.
Teaching is hard, and some days overwhelm took over…
But I never allowed that overwhelm to get in the way of the most important things: my passion for teaching and my students.
The strength of our student relationships makes the difference in translating our passion for teaching into their passion for learning. –Beth Morrow
Today I bring that same passion and philosophy into the work I create, and I believe that is why thousands of teachers come to me as their “go to” source for encouragement, advice, and inspiration.
Which brings me to you.
I’m here to support you, uplift you, and inspire you.
Whether you’re a novice teacher or an experienced one, I’m here to help you have more ease and more fun in the classroom.
Together, we’ll conquer the hurdles that come with teaching – the meetings, the behavior challenges, the constant overwhelm – and I’ll help you recharge and reignite your passion for teaching.
Together we can achieve so much.
The most valuable resource that all teachers have is each other. Without collaboration our growth is limited to our own perspectives. –Robert John Meehan
