When did you join Teachers Pay Teachers as a Seller? What made you decide to become a seller?
I joined Tpt at the end of November 2011. I have always enjoyed sharing my creations with others. Many of my colleagues and friends recommended that I make my creations available to everyone on Tpt. I finally caved in and joined. I have had such a wonderful experience with it so far!
One piece of advice you can give to a beginning teacher & one piece for a veteran teacher:
Regardless of where you are in your teaching career, it is important not to get discouraged when things do not go as planned in your classroom. It happens to all of us. Our job is not easy. It is so important to be flexible with your teaching because you never know what is going to happen!
Something unique about you both as a teacher and outside of the classroom:
In the classroom, I am that highly energetic teacher that looks quite silly most of the time. I sing, dance, dress up, make up jingles to remember things, stand on chairs, etc.- whatever it takes to get my students interested and engaged!
Outside of the classroom, I am the complete opposite! I am calm and reserved. I much prefer to stay home and read a good book or watch a movie than go out for a night on the town.

What other bio information would you like to share?
I am a southern girl from Tennessee. I am happily married to the love of my life and am the proud mother of a two-year-old daughter named Gracie. I love spending time with my family and my two cats, Hercules and Xena. Also, I love to get my hands on a good book! I dabble in organic gardening, and spend most of my spare time these days surfing the internet, stalking blogs and Pinterest for creative ideas to incorporate into my classroom!
