My Passion

I have 4 years of classroom experience under my belt. I know, my journey is just beginning, but I have big plans. After being in the classroom for a few years, I began to learn that my passion wasn't necessarily in the classroom. Don't get me wrong, I love the kids and teaching. I realized though, teaching is a tough job! We have a lot of duties and responsibilities with just not enough time in the day. I was creating resources for my class at night, grading during planning, and prepping for meetings during lunch. Where was I going wrong?! 

The truth is, I wasn't doing anything wrong, it is just the job. So, I set out to help others. I want teachers to have access to materials that are easy to use and require little prep. I want to teach you how to work smarter, not harder because... let's be honest, it is the kids who should be putting in the hard work! 

I hope you find value in my resources, discussion topics, and videos. I want to help relieve the burden on you so that you can do what you do best- TEACH!
