From Our Classroom to Yours.
Every Day.

Our names are Shannon Temple and Tammy Lewis, and we are teacher besties. Tammy has taught for over 25 years and Shannon for over 20 years. We teach middle school ELA in a small school in a small town. In 2006, out of needs in our own classrooms, we started creating teaching materials. It was back then that we also began sharing and selling our curriculum materials. Teaching and sharing our resources make us happy, and we are honored that you have stopped by. Weather you’re brand new to teaching or seasoned teachers like us, we’d love to help inspire you to love what you do each day in your classroom!
