The Real Teacher Behind The Computer

Don't judge someone you don't truly know or understand.

Teaching - my hobby, my passion, my dream, my adventure. I knew ever since I was a young child of the age of 5 that I wanted to be a teacher. I played teacher with my stuffed animals, Cabbage Patch dolls and Barbies. I watched many of my elementary school teachers including my aunt and dreamt of being just like them. It was my dream and that dream never went away. After graduating from college with a Bachelor's degree in elementary education, my dream came true when I took my first job teaching 4th grade in a large school in a growing Utah community. I had over 30 students and was placed in a trailer classroom out on the playground. I began decorating and making that classroom my own! It was a circus! Literally chaos and the decor matched! I didn't know what I was doing but I didn't care. I knew that I had to be brave and try hard things and this in fact was a very hard thing but my dream was coming true. The day before my first day of school they decided to give me a classroom inside the building. What was already a circus became a chaotic circus as I took down everything and moved it into the building. 11 years later and I barely can remember names of my students and the fun lessons we did, but what I do remember is my willingness to accept challenge and never give up. 

Teaching is a difficult profession. Every single day we are faced with challenges. Student behavior, academic growth, and keeping up with the trends of the changing classroom. Each year has gotten better of course, as I have figured out how to teach and engage my students. In the last 11 years I have grown as a person and an educator. I've taught in 3 different states, 4 districts, 5 schools and 3 different grade levels. Each year is different and I have loved every single group I've taught. My teaching passion and dream of creating an environment full of creativity and active engagement has molded me into the teacher I am today. 5 years ago, I found out through a friend of a website that teachers could offer their creative ideas and lesson plans for other teachers. TeachersPayTeachers was a new thing back then to me and millions of educators. I dipped my toe in the blogging and TPT world little by little. My success didn't take off as quickly as some TPT sellers did, but like that first year of teaching, I never gave up. I put countless hours in creating activities for teachers on skills that I needed resources for in my own classroom and could benefit other teachers. I tried new things. I pushed myself into the social media world and gave that a try. It took 4 years to grow my little part time business and now The Creative Classroom is bigger than I would have ever imagined it to be. 

With this success of TPT and social media, I have found that some teachers question my intention as an educator. Recently a teammate of mine was asked by another staff member about me. This teacher wanted to know what it was like to work alongside me. She asked if I was "real" or if what I did was for show. My integrity of teaching was being questioned. As you could imagine, I broke down. I was hurt. Words can't describe how it feels for your hobby, passion, dream and adventure to be attacked. Luckily my sweet teammate offered the truth to this teacher and explained that I do go above and beyond for my students. No one can deny that. But what I do in my classroom, for my students is because I want to do it. I don't do it for bragging rights or to show off. I don't do it to compete. I do it because it's who I am. I'm The Creative Classroom. I was the same creative teacher long before TeachersPayTeachers.


This attitude that many teachers and others outside the education profession of comparing oneself to another can be very toxic and hurtful. I've realized now at the age of 33 that there is no good in comparing myself to another teacher, TPT seller, social media icon, friend or neighbor. I've spent so many times in tears because of hurtful things other women say about me and the things I have or do. Why do they care? What I have or what I do is for me. I don't do those things for attention or to put myself up on a pedestal. Let me be me. Let me do the things I want to do. I wish I could teach adults to stop judging people they don't know or even understand. I wish I could take away jealousy and judgment from the world because not only are we hurting others, we are teaching our children these toxic behaviors. Let's be examples of positivity in the world around us. Let's focus on those that truly value our hard work and creativity because they are the ones that matter most. Let's focus on those people in our lives that celebrate our success instead of questioning our intentions.

    1. DIVORCE AND MARITAL BREAKTHROUGH

    2. I'm so excited. I cant believe it! LORD JUMA your love spell casting really worked! My ex-husband is back after he left me and the kids, he sent me an SMS last night, wanting us to get back together again...and here we are! Yes, I’m extremely happy that we are living together again.

      My name is TRIANA ANDERSON from CANADA, My husband and I have been married for about 6yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested LORD JUMA can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again. LORD JUMA is the best online spell caster that is powerful and genuine. If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you.
      Here’s his contact: Email him at: mercyfullsolutionhome@yahoo.com add him up on whatsApp @ +1 (859)-203-2241 his page mercyfullsolutionhome.blogspot.com or trianasson.blogspot.com

  2. This. All of it. I want all of my co-workers to read this. Thank you for sharing, thank you for staying true to you! Throw kindness like confetti and never let anyone anyone dull your sparkle!

  3. So I read this and it really hit home! I've wanted to teach since I was about four, and like you, I had family that was teachers. I've been a TpTer for a few years and I learned you can't compare yourself. People will always judge, and that is because they are envious. It is horrible that people are cruel to others especially when we are supposed to be setting an example for the young kids. You are doing great Ashlyn, don't let anyone deter you. You are doing the best thing for your kids and you. That is what matters! Keep it up, girl. You are amazing and inspiring to teachers around the world!!

  4. Very well written. Sorry that you have had to go through this. You want what is best for students and that in and of itself tells the world that you are a great teacher. Keep your head high, stay focused on your goals and don't let your dreams out of sight. God bless.

  5. I love this post. I agree and I have felt similar things. I actually started a teacher support group in my school that incorporates supporting colleagues, avoiding negativity and many other things that encourage being the best person and educator that we can be. I have been teaching for 14 years and knew that is what I was meant to do by 2nd grade (although, my mom says I talked about it all the time in kinder, but 2nd is when it was solidified). I am so grateful for those like you who are putting strength, kindness, and love for our calling out there into the world. Without the positive online community for support, things would be much tougher! Keep being you!

    1. I'm so amazed to witness the great powers of Dr Henry’s permanent love spell. I have suffered heartbreak and I know the pains each woman feel when left out of marital happiness. I and my husband was divorced after our 17 years in marriage, my parent and his mother tried all they could to make the marriage work again by begging him to return home but all was to no avail. I myself did so many things in several different ways to get him back because I loved him so much but is didn't help at all, instead it all went from bad to worse until I was browsing through some of this website where I found wonderful reviews about this real spell caster called Dr Henry. I read the way Dr Henry has miraculously helped so many individual from relationship problems and I was so bewildered by the fast way Dr Henry helped this many men and women. I immediately contacted his emaiL: permanentspellcast@yahoo.com and complained about my situations to him. I got a quick immediate response from him that he will help me with his permanent love spell that will bring my husband back home to me within 72 hours. I believed him out of what i just read about him and did follow his instructions till the love spell was done. I was sitting at our house the 3rd day after the love spell was cast when my husband drove in, I was so surprised when he said to me that he was sorry that he left me and would want us to come as husband and wife. "Guess What" YES I accepted, because i so much love him and would want to live the rest of my life happy with him. I’m so happy now and I would say all thanks to the great Dr Henry for his love spells he used to restore my marriage. I’LL recommend Dr Henry’s love spell to anyone who is greatly in need of solutions to relationship and marital problem to contact
