I am currently a mother and preschool teacher.
I have two daughters, one getting ready to head to middle school and the other ready to head off to high school before I know it. I am blessed to have them in my life.
I just completed my sixth year of teaching preschool four year olds. I consider myself to always be learning and growing as a teacher. Although I have all of my plans from each year that I have taught, I generally switch things around and add new ideas each year, based upon new ideas I have or have found as well as to work with the unique group of students I have each year. I am also taking courses through Martin Luther College to be certified by my synod in Early Childhood Education. I graduated from Shepherd College with a degree in Elementary Education PreK-8.
In addition to creating things to use in my classroom I also enjoy crocheting for my family and friends. I just completed an afghan for my oldest daughter and am working on a Hobbes stuffed tiger for my youngest, who loves Calvin and Hobbes. I have also created a few items for my classroom, including a stuffed alphabet.
I opened my Teachers Pay Teachers shop in 2015 to share the resources I make for my classroom with others. It also helps motivate me to finish projects that I start since I know I cannot share them until they are complete. My first large project was my Question of the Day project, which has really made the beginning of each preschool day much easier for me. I have also created several sets of calendar pieces for my pocket chart that I enjoy using with my students.
