I’m the person behind The Southern Teach and I create standards-based, low-prep, and engaging social studies resources for upper elementary teachers and their students.

After years of teaching 3rd and 5th grade ELA/SS, I love helping upper elementary teachers by creating resources and sharing ideas that are research-based and TEKS-aligned. Consider me your virtual teacher bestie!

I offer live PD trainings throughout the year for anyone looking for action-packed strategies and tips on effectively planning and implementing an engaging social studies block.
