Hello! I am so excited you have found my blog, The Turquoise Teacher. My name is Kellsie Simons and I am a teacher in Northern Texas. I currently teach 3rd grade Math and Science. I have also taught 5th grade math/science and math intervention. This blog has been in the works for a while. It really does take a village to help our kiddos succeed in school and I wanted a forum to share my experiences in the classroom! Even though I enjoy living in Texas, I am a true Colorado girl at heart. I moved to Texas with my husband after I graduated from Colorado State University.
When I am not at school, I love to read, sew, cook, walk my dogs, ski, and ride my horses. My husband and I live with our two horses, two dogs, one cat, and our fish, Bob!
The name of my blog comes from my time as Miss Rodeo Colorado 2011. Our iconic crown is handmade from silver and turquoise. The turquoise stone is very porous, which means every woman who has touched the crown has left their mark! I am proud to leave my mark on the sport of rodeo and my classroom!
I hope that you find something helpful while you are here! Head over to my TPT store for more great ideas!
