Hi! I’m Sam!

I’m a former K5 teacher turned 2nd grade teacher. I teach in the Milwaukee area of Wisconsin, where I moved after being raised in the Northwest region of the state.

I attended UW-La Crosse and have Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education. This is my fifth year teaching and my second school.

While student teaching, I started posting resources I was making on my TeachersPayTeachers page, which was my introduction to connecting with the education community online. Being someone who would rather exclusively communicate through print than ever in person, I found a blog was a perfect place for my thoughts as I taught and connected with other teachers.
