Hi – thanks for spending some time with me! I’m Tiarra – I’m a Florida educator and knew early on that I wanted to help students LEARN – like you, I’m passionate about what I do. I found my love for the middle school math realm and have taught all levels of 6th & 7th grade math as well as 8th grade Algebra of different abilities including intensive, regular, advanced and Cambridge students. I have almost a decade of experience and through teaching so many levels, I have found many ways to reach my diverse student population through skill-based activities that can be life changing for educators. I hope you find some of my resources helpful and time saving but most importantly, fun and engaging. If your students are happy, it can honestly make your day as an educator, so much more valuable.
One of my all-time favorite quotes:
To continue with my back story – I am a parent first and a teacher second so I am still finding the correct life and family balance which like the quadratic formula can be challenging <haha> Currently, I am a stay-at-home parent as of a few months ago but do plan on returning to the classroom when the time is right. My children are still in elementary, and I desperately want to spend every waking moment with them. I do volunteer at their school and with extra-curricular activities like dance and soccer we found it best for me to leave my position momentarily. When the time comes that they don’t want me around will be the time for me to gracefully return – which will be a sad day for me but my baby birds most grow up sometime. I just hope father time is slow with that on the horizon.
Getting back to my passion for engaging materials, I just love getting messages from my previous co-workers who are looking for fun activities and sharing with them the items I have used in the past. Or feedback from customers who purchased a resource to only tell me how much fun their students had with it. It brings such light to my life and a smile to my face to hear positive feedback! I feel so connected with my returning clients and co-workers because for so many years I have personally grown and flourished but the bond of friendship that you make with your teacher gang is what keeps us strong!
Don’t forget, if you join my newsletter, you will also be receiving so many free goodies and I will say they will not be available anywhere else except through my exclusive list of friends!
On a personal note, my husband and I have slowly built his business in landscaping, and we are fortunate enough to be doing the same for me in the field of education. He is amazing and here is a big shout out to all the wonderful spouses in the world that lift us up – he truly is my biggest cheerleader in all avenues of life! Support like his makes me feel deeply valued!
Well, that’s it folks – a little insight to my life and I can’t wait to spend some time with you! Please share anything you need – I do take on personal requests and can give you some freedom back from being over worked and tired which will allow you to spend quality time with your family! Love what you do and find that life balance – we are on this journey together!
