Not to long ago,  a group of creative elementary teachers decided to band together to start this amazing new adventure of collaborating and sharing ideas with other elementary teachers! Our hope is to share a variety of ideas so that we can reach out to more readers beyond just one niche. You can visit each blog if you click on the graphic.

I'm a second grade teacher in NoVA. This is my seventh year teaching second, but I've taught four years in fourth grade and two years in fifth. But second is my favorite. The kids are at an age where they can transition to independence, but aren't jaded yet.

I started the Tpt Store with my sister a year ago. She is a costume designer living internationally. I miss her...

Educational philosophies - I am into real-life experience project based learning. My school is an IBPYP school, and I really like it. I'm hoping to integrate STEAM/STEAM/STREAM educational practices into my teaching this year.

I am from Minnesota but have lived in Arizona for the past 20 years. I have taught 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade for the past 16 years. I am currently running my own tutoring business. I have my Master's Degree in Education from Northern Arizona University. I am now starting my 3rd year as a blogging and selling products.

I have been an elementary school teacher for 18 years, the majority of those in 5th grade. I teach predominantly English Language Learners in a 1:1 iPad 21st Century Learning environment style classroom integrating all curriculum throughout the day utilizing Common Core. I decided to try my hand with TeachersPayTeachers in December after realizing I receive so many amazing resources and tips through others and that it was time to finally share mine with the world. I love teaching and look forward to my day just about every morning. I look forward to wherever my TPT future takes me. I am truly enjoying the ride.

I’m a teacher, Mumma and kids gardening/nature club enthusiast! I live in a little cottage on the fringes of Auckland, New Zealand, with my amazing hubby and beautiful wee toddler.

I enjoyed teaching full time for 10 years (mostly years 2-4) and loved setting up and organising our schools lunchtime garden club – The Green Grubs! I now teach part time, which has allowed me to watch the amazing leaps in learning that my little Grub makes daily. It also gives me the time to indulge my passion and enthusiasm for all things green and grubby! This includes creating specialised resources to support nature based education... I pride myself on creating practical and creative resources that get children involved in the wonder that is our natural world.

Fresh air, bare feet + grubby hands = active learning!

I teach first grade in Virginia. I have taught grades K-3, and a Gifted 4th grade. I have taught for about 30 years, and I love it! My daughter Brittany and I started this business about a year and a half ago. She is a singer/songwriter that teaches music in preschool. We wanted to combine both our passions of music and education to make fun and engaging products for our kiddos. We like to include original recordings in our bundles. We also have created Quality Quentin products, based on my class mascot, Quality Quentin. He is a cool penguin who helps us to be quality students. Brittany and I wrote a "Quality Student" song and a Bully Prevention song that has helped our students learn what "Quality" means. We also have two books with Quentin that teach students good character traits. Our goals are to continue writing and producing songs/products that make learning fun, and to create a series of Quentin books that will show children the importance of good character traits.

I am a public school educator with 20 years of elementary experience. During this time I have taught in a self contained Special Education classroom and served as the reading/math intervention ESE Inclusion Teacher in grades K-5. Currently I teach special needs students in grades 4-5. I have a background in Special Education and a Masters in Reading and Language Arts.
I believe all students can learn and deserve the opportunity for success. It is my mission to develop a love of learning and reading with my students and yours!
I began my life changing journey as a blogger and a TpT store owner almost a year ago. I have been blessed by the people I have met on this journey. I look forward to continuing this journey with you!

I have been a teacher for over five years now. I mainly taught grades K-2 while I was teaching elementary students. I am now teaching ESL classes with a micture of younger and older students. I tutor a wide range of elementary students in grades Pre-k to third grade, so I make a wide variety of resources! My philosophy in teaching & learning is to make sure that facilitation and helping students gain the knowledge to independently 'find the answers' rather than feeding them the answers ourselves - this is why most of my resources incorporate some sort of FUN element in them to promote learning and curiosity.

My name is Tara and I've been a literacy interventionist for 10 years. Literacy is my passion and has been since I was a young girl. I believe that everything we do in life involves some kind of literacy component and I love helping little ones find their passion. I've been on Teachers Pay Teachers for about a year now and love all the new virtual friends I've made. Plus the things I've learned that help me be a better teacher are priceless. I'm constantly working on setting goals and improving my teaching. I look forward to sharing ideas with you.
