A New Adventure in Teachers Pay Teachers

For as long as I can remember my favorite way to spend free time was to create. As a child I loved to make any craft I could get my hands on from latch hook rugs to woven potholders to cross stitched bibs. I would sew clothes for my dolls and make presents for family and friends. What I loved most about my hobbies was the fact that it allowed me to take simple materials and create something useful and beautiful. Yes, that lime green and orange potholder was beautiful in my 8 year old eyes.

After becoming an aunt and mother, I turned to sewing clothes for children as my creative outlet. And when Luke was old enough for preschool, I began to create educational tools and worksheets for him to work on at home. Most people don’t know this about me, but I am about 6 hours short of having my Master’s of Arts in Elementary Education. One day I hope to finish my degree, but for now, I use my teaching knowledge to teach and nurture my own kiddos.

A few months ago I was encouraged by my friend, Katie King, to look into creating items for Teachers Pay Teachers. I respect Katie so much as a teacher and blogger, but most of all she is a super mom to three sweet children. If she has time to create for Teachers Pay Teachers, surely I can find time too. As soon as I clicked on their web site, I was hooked. I absolutely adored all of the beautiful teaching materials available on there and knew I wanted to create them too.

So, for the last couple of months, I’ve been slowly building up items in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. I have SO much fun creating items and I love that I can use them to teach Luke the fundamentals he will need to succeed in kindergarten next year. If you are a teacher, I would love for you to check out my store here and leave me feedback so I can improve my products. I’m always looking for suggestions as well, so if you would like an educational item created, please let me know!

I just finished a big math pack that is great for kindergarten, but also works well for pre-k or 1st grade that is based on the Super Bowl! It was so much fun to create this football themed math pack. Here is a preview below and it’s on SALE this week for half price! Luke has had a lot of fun working with these math activities, so even if you aren’t a teacher, I promise your kids will love it!
