Meet Alyssa

Hi! I’m Alyssa and I’m here to help upper elementary teachers find standards-based, engaging activities so you can take back your personal time! I know very well how busy the life of a teacher is – and I love sharing helpful tips and resources so that you don’t have to spend all your free time at school. 

You’re in the right place if you’re an elementary teacher looking for helpful, time-saving resources and ideas to use with your students. I’m so glad you’re here!

A little about me…

I have eight years of teaching experience in first and fourth grade, and I’ve also worked as a school librarian. I’ve loved having the chance to work with kids at all elementary levels, but my heart is in the upper grades!

Shortly after my first child was born, I was looking for a way to share my teaching activities and ideas with other educators in my state. I started my Teachers Pay Teachers store in 2014 and have been having a blast creating resources ever since!

My (teacher) husband, three children, and I live in Virginia with our dog, Archer. Some of my favorite activities are reading, hiking, and visiting wineries. And since I’m in Virginia, everything I create is Virginia SOL-aligned!

Let’s connect!

I always love to hear from teachers! Feel free to reach out on social media, by email, or via the contact form on the website.
