Supporting Teachers to grow successful readers and writers
Welcome to The Literacy Garden!
I am so happy that you have found my blog. During the day, I teach 2nd graders and at night I write teacher resources for my class as well as Teachers Pay Teachers. It’s hard to believe I have spent over 28 years in the classroom with primary students! It is so rewarding to share this journey with you through my blog.
I am happily married to a wonderful man who supports all my endeavors. My loving family and playful fur baby named Charley keep my home filled with joy and adventures.
Welcome! My name is Alison. My passion is to support educators like you with effective teaching tips and engaging resources. You don't have to do this alone! I'm here to be the support you've been looking for. Let's do this together!
About the Literacy Garden
When I started teaching, I quickly realized that student teaching didn't prepare me for the real challenges of being alone in a classroom full of young children. The learning curve was steep and time was limited.
That is why I created the Literacy Garden. My hope is this will be a place for inspiration, mentoring, and connecting.
