Sound Familiar Super Teacher?

  • I am already feeling overwhelmed about going back to school.
  • I love my students, but I need more time for myself and my family.
  • The materials I'm provided from my school and district just aren't cutting it for all of my students. 
  • I don't want to spend hours digging through TpT, Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, and hundreds of teacher websites to find what I need.
  • I don't like feeling as if I'm doing this all on my own.
  • I have my own classroom ideas, but I'd like a place to go when I need additional materials, support, or to talk with other teachers who get how hard this job can be.

Imagine if you could feel like this instead:

"Friend from across cyber space, you are like my Fairy Godmother! Thank you, thank you, thank you. I’ve spent hours on TpT but this brought it all together! Thanks so much. I’m not going to cry today, I’m going to do this!!!"


Nectaria // Classroom Teacher

  • The thought of what the school year holds doesn't overwhelm me. I know I'll have ideas, materials and support when I need them most.
  • I have more time for myself and my family because I'm not spending hours looking for materials. I have downloadable resources at my fingertips every single month that can save me time and stress.
  • I have the help of an experienced teacher who can suggest appropriate resources that are a good fit for my 2nd or 3rd grade classroom.
  • I have immediate access to classroom-tested resources for every month of the school year.
  • I have a place to share ideas of what's working in my classroom, a place to connect with other teachers going through the same experiences, and the help from my own personal "Betsy" who wants me to have more time for myself, less stress, and support when I need it most.

Hi! I'm Katie,

and I want to be your Betsy.

Katie Smith

a.k.a. i want to be a super teacher

a.k.a. your virtual betsy

If you're a 2nd or 3rd grade classroom teacher who wants to save yourself time, stress, and get support when you need it most, you're in the right place.


I have fourteen years of classroom teaching experience in grades 2-3, and am passionate about helping teachers engage every learner and personalize instruction.


My specialties are providing choice within structure, creating engaging advanced options for high-flying students, and using workshop models and conferencing to meet the needs of every learner.


I am hoping to be your virtual Betsy throughout the next school year and beyond.


I'm so excited about the possibility of rocking the rest of the 2021-2022 school year TOGETHER!


Want to know more? Read on Super Teacher.

My Betsy?

So, let me explain.


During my first year of teaching I was an intern, which basically means I skipped student teaching and went straight to the classroom.


The catch was, interns were paid half salary, but we also were assigned a facilitator whose job was solely to help us.


Enter: Betsy!


Was Betsy's mentorship worth half my salary? As a 21 year old with minimal bills, absolutely!


She created a folder of teaching items for us every month, but didn't pressure us to use them.


She gifted us teaching presents every month (Cute stationary, stopwatch, Flair pens, teacher heaven!)


She knew all the right things to say at exactly the right times, could defuse any angry parent, and could take care of a 5th grader with a pocket knife like nobody's business.


Can I come to your room and drag out a screaming, knife-wielding 10 year old?


Unfortunately, no.


But, I know I can help. And it's my top priority from now until your summer break of 2022 (2022?!) and beyond to make sure I'm there to make your teaching life easier, save you stress, and give you more time for yourself.


I know how overwhelming and isolating teaching can be, even if you have a great team. How often do you just want to turn to an adult and say, "Did you hear what that kiddo just said?"


I know how heavy that bag you carry to your car every night can feel.


I know how Sundays can start out all fancy free, and then at 7pm you feel like an elephant is sitting on your chest.


I know how you'll drag yourself in to work when you're at death's doorstep, just because sub plans are more effort than they're worth.


I know that the materials and support I can provide within the membership can make a real difference in your day-to-day teacher life. 


If you want a virtual Betsy for the 2021-2022 school year, then join us in the membership and let's get started!

New and fresh ideas that my students absolutely loved!

I LOVE my Super Teacher Membership! I have been teaching for 20 years and found that this membership helped give me some new and fresh ideas that my students absolutely loved! During the pandemic I had to adjust to teaching online and Katie was great about providing material that I could use electronically. I found that if I felt stressed about an upcoming unit and how I would be able to make it digital, I could just send her an email and she would respond quickly with suggestions or created materials. Perusing my Super Teacher Membership each month is something that I look forward to exploring because I always find a great suggestion that I can't wait to implement. I highly recommend joining and discovering what the Super Teacher Membership has to offer!
