About

Hey there! I am a travel-loving primary educator turned temporary online-ESOL teacher. I create resources for Teachers Pay Teachers and am supremely committed to helping both students and educators thrive within the classroom. Last year, I made the difficult decision to step outside of the classroom and instead stepped into the city of Århus, Denmark for one year. This year is full of inconsistency and will include a one-month volunteer teaching trip to Ghana. I am enthusiastic, clumsy, always learning, mostly laughing, often traveling, and can be found somewhere in the world, a cup of coffee in hand.
