It’s been an amazing journey so far! Before starting Have Fun Teaching, I was an elementary teacher. I graduated with an Elementary Education degree in 2005 and taught grades 2, 3, and 5. During my first year of teaching, I started to realize the great need for free high-quality teaching resources. I also noticed that the teachers around me had very little time to gather or make these resources with all of the meetings, conferences, and lesson planning. So, I applied for a $600 grant from my school district that I would use to create a website for teachers that would be free and full of resources. The goal of this website would be to help teachers save time and have fun teaching!
With a Doctorate in Ministry and Masters in Leadership, I learned the value of quality education. My passion is to inspire teachers, deliver outstanding service, and encourage educators into believing that together we can change how educating is done. Helping teachers and parents have fun in the classroom and at home is the single most important role in our company. It’s such an honor to lead the way in revolutionizing how we educate young minds and inspire teachers to have fun and help teachers remember WHY they became a teacher in the first place.
I graduated from Miami University with a degree in Middle Childhood Education and obtained a Master’s degree in Curriculum & Instruction from the University of Kansas. For the last 10 years, I have taught a variety of different grades, including Second Grade, Fourth Grade, Fifth Grade and Sixth Grade. My hope is to support teachers by creating high-quality materials, and provide outstanding customer service, so that our teachers can spend more time building relationships with their students and families.

Having six educators in my family, I understand the importance of all that teachers do for their students. I have so much respect for educators! Growing up, I had the hardest time learning in school and things just didn’t make sense. There was always that special teacher that took me under their wing and showed me that there are different ways to learn. Have Fun Teaching isn’t just a job for me, nor is it just a website. HFT is a community that I am passionate about. Please know that I am here to help you in any way possible.
