💗 My name is Elizabeth and I teach 4th grade in Minnesota.
💗 I am not obsessed with unicorns, but my students sure were last year! They were all making and wearing unicorn horns, and one kiddo made me l this adorable badge that said “#1 Best Unicorn Teacher Ever” (swipe to see). When I needed a username, @4thgradeunicorns seemed like a fun choice! 🦄
💗 I am super passionate about children’s literature, especially graphic novels and books that depict people of color and other traditionally underrepresented populations. #representationmatters !! I seek out books that introduce students to social justice issues in a developmentally appropriate way. You will see a LOTTT of book shares and reviews on my page! 📚
💗 I really enjoy creating a classroom environment that is welcoming, calming, and supportive of student learning and agency. I am a #flexibleseating fan.
💗 In my free time, I like watching reality TV 🙈, going for walks, and being a volunteer teacher screener for @donorschoose 🧡
I nominate @mrscallscampers , @abuckeyeteacher , and @givethatgirlasnack !!
Grading financial future vision boards today! Students used Canva or Google Slides to envision their future. Today they’re writing up SMART goals based on what’s important to them. Great activity to get to know my students!
Stop what you are doing, and go get this book! It’s about ghosts that come in all different shapes, sizes, colors, and even what they do(they don’t say boo all day). My students made their own “school” ghost. Perfect project for Halloween 🎃 👻
If I knew then what I know now! I wrote and published my book two years ago, then went on to write several e-books and publish countless books for clients. I’m working on my next two books now and I started reflecting on where I went wrong the FIRST time-so you don’t have to! Join me today at 1:30pm EST because I’ll be going into detail about the BIGGEST mistake I made when I wrote my first book, so you don’t make the same mistake! You don’t want to miss this! Set your reminder and tag a friend you know who needs this!

November is coming, which means I’m doing something that is both terrifying and awesome: NaNoWriMo. Yep, I’m joining the rest of the crazies who are writing a 50,000 word novel start to finish in the month of November 😳 Have I mentioned that I’m terrified? Because I totally am. The self-doubt is real. ..
Writing a novel has been a dream of mine since I found out books were written by actual people 🤖
This year, I’m going for it. And I’m so excited to invite you to join me on my probably ridiculous but also awesome journey as I balance (or, you know, ATTEMPT to balance) single mom life (husband is in the army and will be gone), teacher life, and aspiring novelist life! ..
Anyone else participating this year? Or have you in the past? What are your best tips for newbies like me?
This week we’re reading a Ray Bradbury short story, All Summer in a Day. We’re going to listen to this story being read in the dark under the stars, pretending we’re on Venus. I’m not the biggest sci-fi fan, so setting this up is just as much for me as it is the kids. 🤷🏻♀️ (In case you were wondering, putting up 350 star stickers makes your arms feel like noodles.)
What if I told you that you didn’t need to SWEAT or even workout to lose weight? 🤭
I took a week off from working out - I needed a break...mentally, physically, just a break...I'm super excited to get back into it...but this week, I felt it. .
SO, you know I’ve struggled with emotional and binge eating in the past... AND I know that so many of you have struggled with them too...
AND then there are struggles with- fad diets, diet hopping, yo-yo dieting, AND just having a good relationship with food in general. 😜
SO, for anyone who is searching for the ANTI-DIET but completely LIFE CHANGING program- I would love to share details with YOU! (And YES- workouts are optional!!)
I followed this program this week...because I REFUSED to work out..and I STILL saw results!!
I finally have a program that is helping women to break through plateaus, lose weight, AND keep it off, and I'd LOVE to help 10 women to start their journey BEFORE the holidays knock us back 10,000 steps.
Could you please help me know what YOU need by dropping the HEART(S) that BEST describe you below?!
💜 - I Need to lose weight but I dislike exercise.
❤️ - I exercise but struggle with nutrition.
🧡 - I cannot exercise due to injury/illness.
💚 - I LOVE food, love to eat big portions, and I want to feel full.
💙 - I want an easy-to-follow way to lose weight without strict rules, counting, or cutting food groups.
💛 - I want to be free from emotional eating, obsessing about food, and feeling overwhelmed by food choices.
“The idea of co-teaching, with one general education teacher and one inclusion specialist, is that the kids with special needs are able to function with modifications and adaptations with support from an education specialist. That's my role. This is Maranatha's classroom - but my job is to work with the portion of the classroom who need special tools so that they can function within the general education. I think this is actually important especially for the general ed kids - to see that people are different and have different skills. A lot of my special ed kids have skills that are above and beyond their peers in different areas. It's important for them to learn that - well he may not be able to talk, but look how good of a friend he is. Look how responsible he is, whatever. (Maranatha) - And they're all really receptive to that. Once we talk to them and say that, hey - we're all learning. We're All in This Together!” -- Maranatha Hosick (right) and Jessica Walsh (left) | Pre-K Teacher and Inclusion Specialist at United Nations Child Development Center
