Core Inspiration is founded on the idea that every student has the right to feel comfortable, confident, safe, and inspired in their learning environment. Making that magic happen every year with a new group of unique personalities is no easy feat for a teacher…and it’s never perfect. With the support of a strong teacher tribe, a research-based instructional approach, a whole lot of organization, and engaging activities that promote student independence, you can help young minds grow.
Elementary Teacher, Educational Blogger, Teacherpreneur, Founder of Core Inspiration
During my seven years as an elementary educator in California, I have taught students in grades 2-4 at two different schools in two different districts. From my first days as a teacher, I loved creating custom resources for my students to help boost their engagement, challenge them, support them when they struggled, or help them to be independent and organized.
In 2013, one of my colleagues encouraged me to share my resources on Teachers Pay Teachers. At first, I wasn’t convinced that doing so would pay off, but finally decided to take the leap with a little extra encouragement. Soon, I was hearing from other teachers who were using my resources, strategies, and routines in their classroom. An overwhelming feeling of fulfillment comes to me when I hear about students in other classes feeling inspired, engaged, and independent, just like the students I interact with face to face in my own classroom.
As Core Inspiration has grown, it has become my favorite hobby, an invigorating creative outlet, and a way for me to connect with educators around the world. My goal is to continue creating and sharing unique resources that engage students, build classroom communities, and make teaching a thrill.
