During my youth, I ran summer camps in my backyard for upwards of 30 kids, which drove my poor mother crazy, and I knew just what I wanted to do with my life when I headed off to the University of Oregon. I guess you could say I am one of the lucky ones. I followed my passion, and I'm happy to say I have looked forward to going to school every day. I call it school and not work because I am always learning new things from my colleagues and students, and to be honest, through the past 7 years of teaching, it hasn't felt like work at all.
This is why I am passionate about also sharing my teaching ideas and creating new products for other teachers. My motto for Coach and Teach is, "Inspiring Learners in the Classroom and on the Court." Hopefully I can not only inspire my students, but you as well!
My other passion is coaching. I have coached girls basketball for 5 years, and while that has had to take a backseat to other commitments in my life, my girls know that I'm always there for them to watch a game, tutor, or talk about the issues of growing up.
I also believe that through Coach and Teach we can, "Work Together to Lighten the Load." Although we would like to think we can do it all, we just can't. Through my blog, Instagram, and TPT store, I hope to stress this ideal and work together with you to lighten our load in doing what is best for our students.
I appreciate you stopping by to check out my blog, and I look forward to learning with you and helping each other out along the way. Please feel free to leave a comment or send an email with any questions, requests, or collaboration inquiries.
Together on three! 1...2...3! TOGETHER!
