About Me


Hi there!  My name is Katie and I am a kindergarten teacher in California.  This is my personal teaching blog to share classroom ideas, freebies, and resources with other teachers.  I have been teaching for over 20 years and I LOVE little learners!  I also love creating engaging and developmentally appropriate learning activities for my students.  I share loads of free ideas here.  I also share some of my paid resources which can be purchased in my store on Teachers Pay Teachers.  I hope you enjoy the blog and find something helpful.
Thanks for stopping by!

 









Disclosure:  

I occasionally recommend books or other products that I have personally used because I think they are helpful to other teachers.  I am not paid for recommending any products.  However, I do provide affiliate links to Amazon.com and if you purchase a product using that link I will receive a very small percentage of your purchase.

I do not collect your name or email address unless you choose to provide it in the green bar at the top of this website.  I occasionally send out emails with ideas, information on new products, promotional events, and FREEBIES.  If you provide your email address to me and later decide you do not want to receive emails you may unsubscribe at any time.  I use Hello Bar to collect your name and email address and I use Mail Chimp to send out the emails. 

This website includes widgets and links to social media platforms including Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook, as well as the Teachers Pay Teachers website. By clicking these links, you are agreeing to the terms and conditions of these websites. These websites may also gather information such as your IP address, website behavior, and personally identifiable information.  I encourage you to view the terms and conditions and privacy policies of any website you visit.
