Teacher Feature Tuesday: The Creative Classroom

Are you ready? It's time for the next edition of Teacher Feature Tuesday!

Our featured teacher is:

The Creative Classroom

Stephanie teaches 6th-8th grade English Language Arts in Gonzales, Louisiana! Stephanie loves to create art projects for her classroom and says she spends way too much time and money making her classroom a completely unique space for her students and herself.

Stephanie's TpT store The Creative Classroom opened in June 2012. You can check out her TpT store and her Facebook page.

Why do you teach?
"I knew from a very early age that I wanted to work with children and make an impact on their lives. The past five years have been so rewarding for me. I work with academically and behaviorally at-risk students. Being able to build a relationship and reach my students has truly been an amazing experience. It brightens my day and reaffirms my career choice when I see my students accomplish their goals and begin to see just how bright and strong they are."

Why did you open your TpT store?
"I opened my store last summer because I was curious to see if others would find my activities useful and worth purchasing. I didn't really have high expectations or quite know what to expect, but I continue to be amazed at the success I have achieved in a short amount of time."

How has TpT made a difference in your life personally and/or professionally?
"I find that TPT has helped to strengthen my skills and make me a more effective planner. I am constantly pushing myself to create bigger and better products for my students and my store. It has also helped to build my confidence in my teaching styles and methods. Each time someone buys an item from my store or leaves positive feedback, it means so much because people I have never met are showing faith and appreciation in my products."

I wish someone had told me...(share some advice for TpT sellers)
"I wish that someone would have told me about the importance of title pages and quality previews when I first opened my store. It wasn't until I visited the forums in December that I began to learn this advice from other sellers. It would have saved me LOTS of time because I had to go back and revamp a lot of products. Once I did that, my sales really began to increase."

We've taken some time to look around The Creative Classroomstore and she has some great resources! Head on over and check out what Stephanie has to offer! Be on the lookout for one of her freebies being featured here on Fun & Free Friday!
