Hi everyone! I’m Beth from Little Ray of Sunshine. Let’s see, what are some things you may want to know about me? Well, first of all, I am a HUGE animal lover, especially my German Shepherd, Kyrie. I love crafting, learning how to make things and I’m a little obsessed with HGTV. Any Chip and Joe fans here? : )
I had 25 years in the classroom during which time I taught PK through 2nd Grade. About a year and a half ago, I decided to retire early. It was a VERY hard decision for me, having taught all those years, meeting wonderful coworkers who have become even more wonderful friends. And then of course, there are the children. I still remember my first Kindergarten class all those years ago like it was yesterday. Who knew that 25 years later I would have been touched by hundreds of children and their families, many of whom I am still in contact with today.
Being an early retiree has given me some fabulous opportunities, one of which is being a Teacher-Author on Teachers Pay Teachers. If you ask any of my coworkers, they will tell you that I’ve always enjoyed creating things for my classroom. It is so exciting to finally be able to share many of those creations (and many new ones) with you through TpT and this blog.
I’ve been wanting to set up a blog for some time not only to share educational ideas, but to share some of the different things I’ve learned in life as a mother, a wife and yes, a teacher. I look forward to communicating with all of you. If you have any questions, or would just like to say Hi, you can always fill out the Contact Me form on the Contact page.
Have a GREAT day!
