Make them think! Let them struggle. Don't give them all the answers. Students have the capacity to do great things if only we let them. My first year teaching, I hated to see them struggle. I thought it meant I was doing a poor job at teaching. On the contrary. I was making them think; I just didn't know it yet. #iteachtoo #teachersfollowteachers #firstyearteacherproblems #firstyearteacher #primarycornerstone
Find yourself a man that you can lean and rest on. Coming home to these arms is a breath of fresh air. Sometimes (all the time), I get overwhelmed with my workload and it's really hard for me to walk away from it because I love what I do. This darling husband of mine reduces that stress by either jumping in and helping me do all the things or gently telling me that I need to take a break and rest. I'm in love with him more and more each day and I love that he's not only my husband and father of my babies, but he is also my pastor and my partner. When I say Primary Cornerstone, he's included, because he puts in just as much work into this passion of mine as I do. (He also thinks I have followers because of him 😜) #covenantlove #teacherhusband #primarycornerstone
I love the way @mrslahuescrew displayed her portable word wall nice and low for easy student access. Space saving for sure! I have 3 different versions of the portable word wall: polka dots, rainbow, and yellow stripes. Rainbow seems to be the most popular.

I'm bearing my soul 💕 The About Me section of my website is not a simple I love coffee and 🎯 (which I do-a lot!), it is an in depth look of how much it cost me to get to where I am today. It was no easy journey and if I'm being honest, it was also not easy to write about it. My pain and losses made me stronger, but they also made me mindful and instilled me with a passion for making a difference. Link in profile. #iteachtoo #teachersfollowteachers #primarycornerstone
Behind the scenes and where the magic happens 💕 I haven't had a dedicated space in a while. My bedroom and the dining room were often the teacher dumping ground. So glad to call this space my own. It may not be the fanciest (it's in the basement), but it's all mine 💕 Do you have a dedicated space for creating?
Gasp! All the heart eyes! Can you believe that @teachexploreinspire made these herself with cardboard boxes?! How clever and creative is this?! Make sure to follow and offer her some love and support in this teaching journey 💕 #teachersfollowteachers #iteachtoo #mowillems
Sadly, I'm not at the TPT conference but I'm in Miami. One of my favorite things about this journey has been meeting other amazing educators. So many great minds out there that have so much to offer. @yourthriftycoteacher is truly a gem and I am so happy to be able to call her, friend. Friendships can start in the inbox and grow to be everlasting. So grateful for a community of educators that care and make a difference daily. Cristy is one of those educators. I couldn't come to Miami and not see her 💕 #teachersfollowteachers #teacherspayteachers #iteachtoo #primarycornerstone
Did you watch my story about my WILD Tuesday night here in Miami? My glass is refillable. Tomorrow is a new day and right now I'm banking on the rest that I so desperately needed and didn't know it. 📸credz to the talented Cara from @thefirstgradeparade #teachersfollowteachers #teacherspayteachers #teachersneedrest
