I can’t believe that 2017 is almost over and what a year it has been! I decided to retire after 32 years of teaching to devote more time to creating resources for the children I love so much! It was such a difficult decision and it took me a few years to actually go through with it. I love teaching and I love creating fun and engaging ways to teach students. Unfortunately, I need to sleep, and have a life, so it was time to make a decision. After much discussion with my husband and a lot of prayer, I decided to take the leap and leave the classroom.
Brittany made this awesome album of teaching memories for me, and yes, I cried.
Well, I guess the good Lord wasn’t quite ready for me to quit teaching altogether because I was actually offered a contracting job as a Title 1 Reading Teacher and I could do it part time! Wow! What a blessing-to teach my favorite subject, reading, and I have more time to work on engaging resources for my students.
My daughter and partner Brittany went back to school to get her teaching degree and I am so proud of how she has juggled school, being a wife, a mother to my beautiful grand daughter and worked on our business!
She even found time to make this cute cupcake costume.
As far as our business goes, we want to say thank you to all of you who have helped to make it grow! We appreciate the kind words about our products and we hope to bring you and your students more of what you find helpful, fun and engaging in your classroom. Remember to email us anytime!
