Tell us about yourself.
My name is Elizabeth and I have been teaching in the great state of Virginia for 10 years. I have taught 1st grade for most of those years but recently started a new journey in 2nd grade. When I am not teaching I love to spend time with my husband doing something outdoors like hiking, swimming, and running.
What do you like best about teaching?
I love that every day is a NEW day! You never know what to expect when you walk in the door in the morning. I also love when a child has a “light bulb” moment; that moment when you can see it on their faces that they get a skill that was previously difficult for them!
Describe your favorite TpT product.
My Letter Sound RTI is my favorite. It took a long time to create and I have had so much success with it, with my own students, in helping them recognize letters and sounds. The product is a 25 days RTI program. This can be done 1 on 1 or in a small group. All materials are included and if laminated, can be used year after year!
What advice would you give to someone who may want to become a seller at Teachers Pay Teachers?
I would say “GO FOR IT” You won’t regret it! By becoming a seller it brought back some of the joy of teaching that had been lost by testing and data. My students have benefited greatly from new ideas and products. TpT is an awesome community where everyone genuinely cares about one another and wants everyone to be successful. The only thing I regret it not joining sooner!
What have you done or hope to do with your TpT earnings?
Anything and everything. My eventual goal is be able to take a year or 2 off of teaching to focus on our family.
What do you like best about being a member of The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative?
I love the access it has given me to new buyers and collaborative efforts from other sellers! It’s a great community! I have seen great gain in profits, followers, and feedback since joining! I’m happy to be here!
