Hello and thanks for stopping by! I have a passion for helping others, I guess that is why I am a teacher! I have taught school professionally for over 25 years in both special education and general education.

ART AND STAMPING BLOG: I have always loved to create art, including rubber stamping, but recently I found that I really do need to create art for my self-care, and doing it has actually improved my blood pressure! For years, this website has had special ed teaching tips, as well as a special ed podcast. However, now in Jan. 2023, I am adding a section for an ART BLOG. I don’t have much content in that area… yet. I just joined Stampin’ Up as a demonstrator, so I will share fantastic projects with their products, and share some of my other art projects as well.

THE TEACHER BLOG will equip you with the ideas and resources you need so you can be successful in your classroom today and this week. And to ultimately enable you to fill your teacher backpack with skills and resources to make you a confident educator. Click here to learn more about my teaching background.

HELP FOR SPECIAL EDUCATORS PODCAST: Listen to great interviews with special educators around the globe to bring you innovative ideas and just plain good strategies that will help run your class, groups, or therapy sessions more smoothly. And some episodes come with freebies on the show notes page.
