Do you ever get Pinterest fatigue? You know … where you spend so much time looking for the perfect activity that you start to see the same results over and over again?
Do you ever find yourself spending way too much time prepping your lessons and centers?
I’ve been there.
As a teacher, I was at school until 10 P.M. on school nights … and came back to work all weekend!
I want better for you.
That’s why I created The Measured Mom, your go-to website for easy-prep resources that your students will love so much they’ll forget they’re learning.
I taught in a variety of grade levels (1st through 5th grade) and earned my M.Ed. before leaving the classroom to raise my children at home. I’m now a work-at-home mom of six kids ages 7-16.
