About Me

Welcome! My name is Alyssa and I created this space to share ideas, tips, and resources for teaching upper elementary grades. I know very well how busy the life of a teacher is – and I hope that the content here saves you time and helps you find new ideas you can use in your classroom today.  Likewise, I hope that you share your ideas with me!

A little more about me? I have eight years of experience teaching first and fourth grade in public schools in the beautiful state of Virginia. I’m married to a high school teacher who shares my passion for working with children. When our daughter was born, we decided that I would pause my teaching career to stay home with her. Shortly after, I discovered my second passion: creating helpful and affordable resources for elementary school teachers to use in their classrooms. Since starting my Teachers Pay Teachers store, we’ve added two sons and a pup to our family as well!

A few of my favorite things include browsing children’s books at the bookstore, going to the beach, wearing Chucks, and eating chocolate!

Thank you for visiting my blog! I look forward to connecting with you!

Happy Teaching!
