Hi! I am Thera Allen, a follower of Jesus Christ, wife of my high school sweetheart, mother of one determined little girl, and a curriculum developer. (And much, much more.)
I was a classroom teacher for many years, teaching grades 1-4. After a long (like 3 year) conversation with God and my husband we finally decided that my place was at home with my daughter, but I couldn’t fight my love for teaching. I tried tutoring, teaching at a home-school co-op, and even working at an University to help underprivileged preschoolers, but none of it hit the spot.
I finally listened to a coworker and started prettyfying (I know not a real word, did I mention I mostly taught Math and Science) the things I created for my classroom.
I fell in LOVE!
That was it, I found my passion outside of the classroom. I love bringing new teaching strategies, time savers, and tips to the already overworked teachers. That is my goal for this site, to bring you useful classroom applications with a little humor in the mix.
With love and blessings,
