About Me

Hello teacher friends! I'm Jennifer! I've been teaching for almost ten years and all of those years have in Texas.  At then end of the 2015 school year we made a big move up to Seattle when my husband accepted a new job. I've had a Teachers Pay Teachers store for several years as well. Most of the products in my store were created for my own class and the needs I saw with my students. Writing and reading are two subjects I'm quite passionate about as you can see from some of the items in my store. While I love my store I also love sharing many of my other ideas and tips. I feel like we teachers are each others best resource. Please peek around! I just know you'll find some things to make your teaching life easier and more fun!


  1. Hello, I am currently teaching in TN and I'm in the process of certifying for TX. I have the Gen 160 left to take before applying for license. Could you give me a few suggestions on what I need to focus on more...if you have taken the test? Also I have a long list of cities (districts) that I jotted down however I need to lower it to at least 5 LOL. Could you give me some insight on different districts please? P.S. I love your blog, advice, and ideas!
