Meet the Teacher

I wanted to be a teacher ever since I can remember. I taught various elementary grades in Rhode Island and Florida, moving from upper elementary (4th & 5th) to lower elementary (2nd). After moving to Florida, I taught in a Title I school for eight years. I earned Teacher of the Year in my final year of teaching and was a top 15 finalist in one of the largest school districts in the country.

As a teacher, I struggled to find the right resources for my students and created many of the resources that I used in the classroom. I loved teaching. I loved the students and being in the classroom. But after hearing from so many teachers that they also needed resources, I decided to start my own education resource business in 2012 with the goal of creating effective skill focused resources for teachers. 

My education resources are trusted by over 100,000 teachers across the country. Now, I am offering learn at home lessons and resources to help parents like you and children like yours. Whether your little learner needs a little extra help or you’re looking to give your child a strong reading foundation – I know that you will find these lessons and resources valuable, engaging, and effective.
