Our Mission

K-1 teachers spend too much personal time prepping, planning and creating fun and effective lessons and activities for all their students. They want to create the classroom of their dreams but this leaves them working long hours drained of energy and missing out on life.

Teachers shouldn’t have to choose between having their ideal classroom and having a happy and full personal life.

Making The Basics Fun creates fast prep, fun and effective learning resources and methods for the K-1 classroom so teachers can spend their free time re-energizing and doing the things they love without any worries about their classroom. 

Making The Basics Fun

Hi, I’m Angie.  I am so honored to spend time with you and provide you with resources that make your teacher life easier and full of fun.  I have 25+ years of teaching experience.  My mission is to support you and your vision.  Being a teacher is the best and toughest job. I want to make sure you are smiling and enjoying your ride.  

I’ve taught it all (kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, 3rd-5th combination class, gifted K-8, remedial K-5, ESL,  crosswalk guard, playground/lunchroom aid, curriculum coordinator and administrator.)  

Now I am a content creator, instructional coach, and author.  I help prek-2 educators bring engaging content and attitude into their classrooms so they can highly impact their students and end their day happy and energized. 

Let’s get started.
