Welcome! I’m Kim, the author behind A Love of Teaching. I’m an elementary classroom teacher with over 18 years of experience. My afternoons are spent creating curriculum aligned supplemental teaching resources for the 3-5 classroom. I also design unique teacher t-shirts, notebooks, mugs, and more! I’m here to share teaching ideas, educational resources, timely tips, lesson plans, and daily inspiration for classroom teachers.

I live along the Blue Ridge Parkway in the beautiful mountains of northwestern North Carolina.

I live in a small North Carolina town with my husband and our two children. We enjoy warm summers and cold winters. It’s a beautiful and peaceful place to live. In the fall, we have visitors come from hundreds of miles away.  People enjoy coming to the mountains to see the brilliant colors of our leaves as they change.

I opened my Teachers Pay Teachers store in the summer of 2011, and it has become a growing passion of mine ever since. My store includes resources teachers might find useful for grades 3-5.  You can find tons of curriculum aligned supplement resources for reading and math, and a variety of fun educational materials.

Be sure to follow me on Facebook and Instagram as they are the best places to find out about new products, sales, free resources, and updates!

Thanks for stopping by!
