Welcome to Show Play Grow!
I am a mom, former elementary teacher and mentor, and founder of showplaygrow.com. I empower moms with creative activities, freebies, tips, and more to help kids grow, learn, and discover as you build a happy home! Happy Mom + Happy Kids = Happy Home.
I have always had a particular interest in the education field. Growing up, I often played “school” with my younger siblings, teaching and guiding them through assignments and recess play.
My dream of becoming a teacher was realized when I completed my university education and accepted my first teaching job.
I spent 9 years in the elementary education setting. I had the opportunity to teach first grade for seven years and then mentored new teachers in first, fourth, and sixth grade for two years.
Life has brought me to where I am now, a stay-at-home mom with a loving husband and beautiful daughter.
I now have the opportunity to focus on teaching my daughter, supporting my husband in his goals, and seeking out ways to help other children learn and grow.
WHY I WANT TO HELP PEOPLE
It is so rewarding to see the light bulb turn on in the eyes of a young person who has made a learning connection.
It is my hope that many of these “light bulb” moments will be made possible as children are connected with the right activities and tools to stimulate their brains.
I understand what it is like to search for just the right thing whether it be for your own child, a class of children, nieces and nephews, or any other child you have the privilege of influencing.
I would love to aid in the happiness and growth of children all over!
This website gives me the chance to share my passion for learning and for teaching children.
I hope to help parents, teachers, caregivers and all others who come into contact with children in their lives to connect with valuable ideas, exciting toys, and engaging activities that will help them stretch their minds and have a blast doing it!
All the best!
