Welcome to our little corner of the internet! Our names are Andrew and Amanda. We are a couple of married teachers from Minnesota and the parents of two wonderful little boys! We are also busy curriculum designers on Teachers Pay Teachers.

The purpose of our blog is to have a spot to share some of our teaching ideas and resources with other teachers.

Amanda began her teaching career in 2010 and has taught kindergarten, first and second grade. She has also spent several years as a literacy coach, helping to support teachers with literacy instruction.

Andrew began teaching in 2012 as a 3rd grade teacher. He has also taught 5th grade, 8th grade and is currently enjoying life as a 7th grade middle school teacher. In 2018, he was a candidate for the Minnesota Teacher of the Year award.

Our primary goal is to share our experience – things that seem to work, things that don’t and some things we have learned and enjoyed along the way.

We are happy you are here!

Andrew & Amanda
