About Me

 My Experience

I have had experience teaching in elementary schools in Ontario for 13 years, mostly in Grades 1-3.  My additional qualifications are in ESL and Special Education. I love creating and designing helpful teaching resources. My own children’s learning needs also inspire my creations.

My Focus

I had always found it difficult to find good quality, relevant resources for each subject and wished that there were more units available to make my planning and teaching easier.  In 2013 I began creating educational resources and games with those needs in mind.  I opened my Teachers Pay Teachers store that year and realized that other teachers were benefiting from using my creations as well.  Today I continue to create lessons, units, centers, and activities that help teachers engage students in their learning.

Most of my resources are math and language based. I think that hands-on learning is important and as such I am often creating new math and literacy centers for primary learners.
