my name is sandra

If you are new here, my name is Sandra Farrell, and I love helping teachers. My goal is to help Kindergarten to Third Grade educators meet the needs of their students by publishing educational blog posts, youtube videos, and podcast episodes, and by creating high quality, low-prep student resources.

about me

I am still teaching in the classroom. I have taught kindergarten, first, second and third grade. I’m personally very surprised by how many years I have been teaching. But I love working with young students, especially when they make a connection and their eyes light up. I continually re-evaluate my teaching practices and try to stay up to date with all the current research.

I have 2 bachelor’s degrees, a postgraduate diploma in ELL, and a Master’s degree in curriculum and instruction, with a specialization in early childhood literacy. I have a very personal passion to help beginning readers be successful.
