Teacher Feature Tuesday: Erin Schneider

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

Our featured teacher is:
 Erin Schneider

Erin teaches 7th grade Social Studies (History) in Bowling Green, Ohio.  
Erin Schneider's TpT store opened in August 2012. Check out her TpT store!

Why do you teach?
"I have always known I wanted to be a teacher.  Ever since I was little I couldn't picture myself in any other job, I still can't.  I teach to make a difference-to help make students productive members of society.  I know they will mostly not remember everything they learn in 7th grade social studies, but I hope they will remember the skills they were taught."

Why did you open your TpT store?
"Two years ago I was transferred from American History to Ancient World History and I was so scared. I thought for sure I wouldn't make the transition well and wondered how I would ever be a good teacher again (a little dramatic probably).  I needed a lot of help and guidance then.  I didn't know about TPT then, but I sure wish I did.  I hope my store helps other teachers every day!"

How has TpT made a difference in your life personally and/or professionally?
"Every time I sell a product I feel validated.  It's a great feeling to know that others value your work and your teaching style. When I am stuck on a topic (how to teach it) TPT saves me...every. single. time. :)"

I wish someone had told me...(share some advice for TpT sellers)
"Proofread.  Proofread.  Proofread.  Then ask someone else to proofread. :)"

We've taken some time to look around Erin Schneider's store and she has some great resources! Head on over and check out what Erin has to offer!
