Teaching is HARD! I know how you feel and I’m here to help you unleash your teaching super powers! You're not in this alone.

My passion is to inspire early childhood teachers with play based activities, thematic centers, supports, and engaging classroom environment ideas that nurture and challenge little learners. AND to help you find easy ways to embed character and teach social skills throughout your day (we all know that social skills are over the moon important for success in kindergarten and life). Let me do the work for you so you stop missing your life. After over 11 years of teaching a multi age, full day preschool, I am here to share best practices, activities, and supports that excite and challenge students in an early childhood classroom. Children learn by doing, getting messy, investigating their questions, and problem solving with their friends. They learn by playing games, using their imaginations, expressing their emotions, creating, and exploring the world around them. My goal is for you to spend less time brainstorming and more time teaching, creating a difference in the lives of your students, and to enjoy your weekends again. Yes, have time for you to spend time with the ones you love and make time for yourself again. In my Teachers Pay Teachers store, I have everything you need to create themed centers, build your students character, teach and support various social emotional skills, and set up your classroom environment. If you’re ready to engage students in your classroom and have time to enjoy your weekends again, go check out my store here.
