About Me

Hi!  My name is Linda and welcome to my blog!  I'm also known as The Purple Teacher and absolutely LOVE everything education.

I have been teaching for 7 years and have taught from grade 5 up to grade 12.  I love grades 5-6, they are absolutely, hands-down, my favourite grades!  I live in Ontario, Canada with my husband, son and our 3 pets (2 dogs, one cat). I am fluently bilingual and teach in a French school in Southwestern Ontario.  

I love travelling, reading, baking/cooking and spending time with my family.  Making educational products is something I have always done for my classroom, but have started doing more specifically for Teachers pay Teachers recently (March 2014) and fell in love with this new facet of education.  As much as I love being in the classroom, making resources and products for other teachers and helping students from all over is also such an amazing feeling.

In May of 2015, I made the decision to leave the classroom to be able to stay at home with my son. I simply couldn't manage to be the teacher I wanted to be as well as the mom I wanted to be. Balance is hard, so kudos to all the working moms out there!
