About Me

Hey teacher friend!  I'm Erica, the reading teacher behind The Simplified Classroom!  I'm 29 and I have my Bachelors in Elementary Education, my Masters in Literacy, and a Specialists in Educational Leadership.  I love being active (especially outside) and I'm obsessed with all things organized and pretty!  I live in Southern Missouri and I'm currently busy being a teacher, settling in to married life, and creating helpful educational resources for teachers and teacher-entrepreneurs in my store on Teachers Pay Teachers. Thanks for stopping by this little blog of mine and connecting with me-- I'd love to learn a little about you too, just comment below!

Love & Blessings,
