It all started with a problem, which sparked an idea, which blossomed into a vision. MyClassroom2Yours is an educationally based website, rooted in the hope of facilitating supportive relationships among teachers across the country. The goal of this website is simple: we aim to provide teachers an outlet where they can not only sell their own classroom items or products, but also buy discounted classroom materials from fellow educators. We want this site to serve as a one-stop shop for you to meet your classroom needs, while supporting other educators around the country!
The team at MyClassroom2Yours is made up of three passionate, devoted, and enthusiastic teachers. This website has been meticulously developed for both buyers and sellers, to meet the needs of you as a professional, as well as those of your students and classrooms. Our hope is that this site will serve as a resource and opportunity for teachers to unite and support one another.
Now, let’s get to know the women behind MyClassroom2Yours.
The Ladies of MyClassroom2Yours
My name is Melissa and I am currently a first grade teacher. I live in New Jersey as well with my husband Michael and my son “Little Michael.” I am very close with my family, especially my two younger sisters. My family means the world to me. Their love and support is what keeps me going! I love vacations to the beach, reading, TV shows, coffee and being active. When I am not teaching I love spending every second with my crazy, silly little boy!
I currently teach first grade with Kerry in Somerville, New Jersey. This is my 6th year teaching first grade and I have previously taught third. In 2009 I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Elementary Education at James Madison University in Virginia. The best part about teaching is getting to know each of “my kids” every year and watching their little personalities grow. I also love seeing how much they progress over the course of the year. I enjoy trying to provide my students a fun, engaging, hands on learning environment with experiences they will take with them in years to come.
I live in New Jersey with my husband Walter who is also a teacher and our adopted dog Dunder (yup, as in Mifflin). I am a lover of anything to do with: Halloween, coffee, crime TV and my ultimate favorite: nachos. Decorating and theme parties are my jump off, working out is not and most importantly my undeniable passion is everything and anything education. My sisters often joke that my job is my biggest hobby and they are completely right.
This year I am finishing my 8th year of teaching. I began as a maternity leave in a third grade resource room after graduating from Marist College as a dual certified special ed/elementary ed teacher in 2009. I then spent a brief time as a one one on instructional assistant in an ABA classroom before finally settling in as a third grade teacher for five years. Three years ago I was moved to first grade and have enjoyed every single moment of it. In 2015 I received the New Jersey Governor’s Educator of the Year Award and in 2017 I was recognized by NJ’s radio station Magic 98.3 for Teachers Who Make Magic. One of my favorite parts of teaching is creating differentiated, meaningful centers that typically which revolve around a theme. Because like a good party, a good lesson ALSO always should be based on a theme.
My name is Courtney, I am 29 years old, and a lifelong resident of New Jersey. I am one of four girls and am extremely close with my family! I am a self-proclaimed expert on all things sushi, celebrity gossip, and wine. Fewer things in life make my happier than Netflix, napping, and a nice vacation...Preferably all three.
I have been a Special Education teacher in the town I grew up in for the past 8 years. I began as a Resource teacher before moving to a lead teacher position in a LLD Moderate class where I have been for the past 6 years. In 2009, I received my undergrad from Marist College and graduated with a dual certification in Education with a minor in Psychology. I most recently had the honor of winning 2016-2017 Teacher Of The Year for my school. One of the best parts of my job is getting to see those “Ah-Ha!” moments within my students. There is never a predictable day or dull moment in the land of Special Education and I wouldn’t trade it for the world!
