I am the Teaching Newt. I prefer to be called Kat when I’m not working. I live in Texas with my husband and our dog in a tiny apartment. We spend a lot of our time cooking elaborate meals for two, playing computer games next to each other, and spoiling our dog.
I created this website and my Teachers Pay Teachers store front as a way to share the resources and experiences that make my job so unique.
Working at the Disciplinary Alternative Education Program (DAEP) is a lot different than working in a mainstream general education classroom. Teaching Elementary students in this setting is even more unique. This website is being created as a way to share what this means.
