1.     How long have you been on Teachers Pay Teachers?  What made you decide to be a part of it?
I've been on Teachers Pay Teachers since October 2010. I was encouraged to join by a co-worker.

2.     When did you know that you wanted to be in education?
I knew I wanted to be in education when I was in middle school. I was inspired by a few great teachers.

3.     How are you currently involved in education?
I am a Middle School Math Intervention Specialist who works with students who are at risk of not passing the state assessment. I also teach an 8th grade Honors Algebra class. 

4.     What would be your advice to people who are considering joining Teachers Pay Teachers?
Go for it! It can change your life!

5.     What has been a highlight, thus far, about being on Teachers Pay Teachers?
I feel like being on Teachers Pay Teachers has made me a better teacher. Having products used by other teachers really encourages me to be more creative and organized in everything I do in my classroom.

6.     What is something fun about you that other teachers don’t know?
I love Disney Princess movies. My 3-year-old daughter is in love with them right now... and honestly I don't mind! :) They make me feel like a little kid again!

7.     Do you participate in education outside of the classroom?  In what type of role?
I don't at this time.

8.     What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?
I would love to be a curriculum writer. I really enjoy creating things and coming up with new questions and ideas!

9.     What profession would you not like to do?
Anything in the medical field. Blood makes me woozy!

10. Who is your favorite author?  Favorite educational author?  And why?
My favorite author is Nicholas Sparks. I get "sucked in" to everything he writes!

I'm proud of my First Grade Math Common Core Bundle. I decided last summer to try to really get into the Common Core Standards for all grades and First Grade was where I started. It's been very successful so far!

I'm also proud of my "Beyond The Worksheet" creation. It's a collection of 49 activities that take students beyond just a worksheet in the Middle School Math classroom.

  1. I wanted to check out the 1st grade Math Common Core Standards Bundle, but it doesn't take you directly there. :-(
