About Me

Imagine having printable lesson plans for tomorrow?

...for next week?

...for the next month?

I can't even imagine because I didn't have that when I was teaching.

to receive a free printable resource for your grade level.

I taught over 6 different grade levels. 

In many of my teaching positions, I had over 15 content areas to teach per day because my teaching assignments ranged from 2-6 different grade levels with a greater range of student ability levels.

Needless to say, I learned to differentiate and accommodate very quickly. 

However, I still had to spend lots of nights and weekend hours planning and prepping for all of those content areas. 

I wish I could get back the time to spend with my girls. They are all grown adults now.

I started creating resources during the 2006-2007 school year because I took the year off due to a move and having three daughters.

I quickly realized the demand and need for quality resources.

Teachers were overwhelmed and needing help.

I was getting great feedback from teachers telling me that students were learning the content through my resources and they greatly appreciated saving time.

I continued creating resources for students PK-8 even after I had taken another teaching job at an alternative high school.

Then came another move and another job. 

This time is was a PK-12 special education coordinator at a large district.

Through all this, I continued writing, took additional classes beyond my Masters for an endorsement, and took care of three daughters while hubby commuted 4 hours a day.

I loved my job as a coordinator, but I was also falling in love with the huge impact I could have on teachers and students all over the world. 

Teaching students with special needs had always been challenging and rewarding at the same time, and I believe I made a difference and impacted many students.

However, for me, creating resources has taken it to another level by combining my teaching experiences, writing skills and creative design.

It's leaving a legacy bigger than me.

It's reaching teachers and students whom I could never reach by foot.

It's continuing to make a ultimate goal.

I am able to offer quality resources at many different grade levels because I taught so many grade levels, from preschool to alternative high school education.

My store has become a one stop shop with over 2,000 printable resources for math, literacy, science, holidays, classroom decor and more.

I value and appreciate today's teachers. The stakes are higher than ever. The demands and expectations continue to grow, while salaries don't grow as quickly.

For this reason, I strive to provide lots of free samples. 

I want you to sample resources to ensure they will work well for your students before purchasing the full resource.

  1. We are proud of you too, Shelly and Paul. Heck, the whole family. And thanks for all the help and encouragement starting my own store on Teachers Pay Teachers. Who knew that selling rocks from the driveway would lead to this. Love ya, all. Mom.

  2. Hi, I tried to find an email for you but failed. I have your pumpkin measurement unit and wish to use it. I only have one problem. One of my students will not do the work due to the jack o lanterns on the pages. Is there any way to get them with just pumpkins? Thanks.
