About Me

hi, I'm Courtney!

a.k.a. Your New Teacher Bestie

I create no-prep resources that save you time – while also making an impact in the classroom.

As a former elementary teacher, I know how it goes.

You know how your planning periods are consumed with meetings and paperwork? And you’re expected to do more with way less? Yeah, I was there, too. I knew that there had to be a better way to tackle the classroom overwhelm. You’re in the right place if you’re finally ready to ditch the stress and embrace the easy.

When I started Create Inspire Teach…

I said enough is enough. I set out to create no-prep, engaging resources for teachers and their students. Now, I have over 100+ elementary resources for all subject areas that decrease planning time, without sacrificing content and engagement.

I started my teaching journey in 2012, a few short months after college graduation. I taught upper elementary for 9 years, with the majority of time spent teaching Gifted & Talented third graders. Along the way I earned my Masters degree in Educational Psychology and launched my TPT store to share the resources I used in my own classroom with other teachers. I know that being a teacher means wearing 47 different hats at the same time, all day, everyday. That’s why it’s my mission to help teachers like you embrace your passion for teaching and leave some of the planning overwhelm behind.

When I’m not creating done-for-you resources…

I am renovating homes with my husband, trying new sushi restaurants and listening to audiobooks (sometimes simultaneously).

I am so happy you’re here!
