Tell us about yourself.
My name is Kris McWilliams, I am a certified K-5th Grade teacher in Georgia, but I am currently living in Germany. My husband recently retired after 23 years in the Army and we decided to move to Germany for an employment opportunity. I have taught both 4th and 5th Grade, currently I am working as a substitute K-5th Grade teacher at the Dodea school on post and I also work part time teaching adults through a continuing education program.
I have been creating products for teachers since 2013. I have a background in digital design and love combining my love of teaching with creating digital designs!
What do you like best about teaching?
My favorite part about teaching is when I witness a student having that “lightbulb moment”. Seeing a child finally grasp a concept makes me remember why I got into teaching in the first place!
Describe your favorite TpT product.
My favorite TpT product is probably my Book Clubs Elementary Starter Set. This was the first TpT product I created.
What advice would you give to someone who may want to become a seller at Teachers Pay Teachers?
Take your time creating products. It’s easy to get excited about a product and rush to put it on your store. I sometimes have to tell myself to slow down and make sure that I am creating the best possible product for my buyers.
What have you done or hope to do with your TpT earnings?
When I am teaching full-time, my TpT earning usually go right back into my classroom! Right now, I save up my earning to use on travel while we are living overseas.
What do you like best about being a member of The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative?
