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! My school district saw potential in my idea and I used the grant money to purchase a website domain, hosting account, and a hard drive to store all of the teaching resources, songs, and files that I was creating for my own students. From then on, the more resources I added to Have Fun Teaching, the more traffic I got to the site and it just grew from there. I have such a great passion for education, for teachers, and for the next generation of leaders. I hope that Have Fun Teaching will bring the joy back into teaching and learning for you and your kids!

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 of 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.

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.

With my educational background and experience, along with countless hours spent creating high quality lesson plans and curriculums, I truly understand the positive impact and value that Have Fun Teaching brings to today’s teachers. I am here to assist you in creating a positive classroom learning experience and giving you the tools you need to be the most successful teacher that you can be!

I am originally from Rhode Island where I lived for 41 years. After High School I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, a Masters in Education, and Middle School Science Certification. I worked in a Rhode Island urban school district teaching first and second grades for over 20 years.
In 2011, my husband and I sold our house, left our police and teaching careers and, with our three children, moved into our RV to travel the US. I have been homeschooling our children since then, and truly enjoy it. We have spent a lot of time in Texas, and spend the summers in National Parks where my husband works as a LE Ranger.
