About Me

I'm am super excited to start my blogging adventure. My hope for this blog is to share ideas and activities with you that you can use in your classroom. I love that teachers collaborate and are always willing to help each other, so fee free to leave comments or suggestions on my posts about what you do in your room.

My background

I graduated from Indiana University with a degree in Elementary Education and then got my Masters in Early Childhood Education online through Ball State University. I have been a teacher for 8 years. 1 year in 2nd, and 7 years in Kindergarten which I absolutely LOVE! Although teaching is my passion, I have decided to take the year off to help my husband grow our business and to spend more time on creating TPT products for all of you! I've always loved being creative and making things for my classroom, so I love having the opportunity to share my activities with you. After this year, we'll see where the road takes me. :)

My family

I have been with my husband Blake for over 15 years! We started dating when I was a freshman in high school and I feel so lucky to have found him at such a young age. We have 2 Puggles, Barkley and Zoey, and we live in my home state of Indiana.

I have 3 sisters that I am really close with even though we are spread out around the country. My 2 nephews are adorable and I love getting to spend time with them whenever I can visit.

Things I LOVE:

  • teaching
  • shopping
  • photography
  • watching TV
  • crafts
  • organization (I'm kinda OCD) :)
  • Taco Bell
  • Dots candy
  • Diet Mt. Dew
I hope you feel like you've gotten to know me a little bit. I'd love for you to follow my blog and hopefully gain some ideas for your own classroom.
