Teachers Pay Teachers – Promoting Success!(Guest Post by Paul and Shelly Anton) “If a child cannot learn the way we teach, we must teach in a way the child can learn.”
This is exactly what out online store and our blog are about! Helping student and teachers with the way they learn and teach. My husband, my Mom and I sell on TpT (Teachers Pay Teachers) and I’m so very proud of all of us! I’m very proud of my Mom due to her hard work with Teachers Pay Teachers which has allowed her to finally retire after 50 years of daycare! It has been such a blessing to both of my parents! And by the way my folks live in Iowa with an actual corn field!…LOL
As far as I’m concerned, I have a long history of doing many different things – ask my family, I love change! I have a teaching degree for elementary education, K-12 special education, a master’s degree in special education consultation and a special education director’s endorsement. Yep, that is a lot of years in the classroom. I also taught in many different areas and started many special programs, including a private preschool when my girls were young. I primarily taught special education in grades 7-12 and also an alternative education school. That was by far my most challenging, yet, my most rewarding!
All while this was happening, I was always pursuing an additional passion of entrepreneurship. I actually sold lots of different things on ebay, but hand painted items were most profitable. I’ve had an etsy story since the beginning of time, my own websites, and a TpT store since its creation as well. In 2012, I quit my full time job as a coordinator for PK-12 special education to pursue my own business full time. I loved my job with the schools, but I also loved having my own business. We downsized, listened to God (amazing all the little things He aligned to make this happen) and took a huge leap of faith. It has truly been a blessing.
While raising 3 beautiful daughter as well as working, I found time to put together this wonderful online store that truly helps all teachers and students. Bottom line is that Teachers Pay Teachers Promoting Success is an online store for teachers that care and need items for their students to be able to teach them in a different way, in a way that the student can excel with. This site is for the teachers and the students! We have everything to teach the student the way the student needs to be taught…
