Fun, engaged, impactful.
Those are the three words that first come to mind when I think of teaching. This should apply to be the relationships you build with your students and their learning.
There’s nothing greater than seeing students engaged when they are learning in your classroom. They are having fun. You know you are making an impact as a teacher. Then again, one thing might be better…having former students approach you and thank you for all the fun they had in your classroom. That is when you’ve reached the teacher jackpot!
Thanks for stopping by! You’ve reached one of my little corners of the internet world. On this blog you’ll find great freebies, plenty of teaching ideas, and some products to help your students be engaged in their learning in a fun way.

Here’s a picture of my little family.
Here’s how I got my nickname
My grandma immigrated from France to the United States when she was 20. She still speaks a mile a minute! When my parents told her my name was Heather Jo, she said it back so fast that it sounded like HoJo. That’s all it took – it stuck!!
I have obtained two masters degrees, one in K-12 Administration & Leadership and the other in Reading. I spent one year as the K-6 principal of two schools and the district’s K-12 Special Education Director.
In 2013 I started working as an adjunct professor, and I did that through spring 2016. It was a great three years, and it was fun to teach teachers in a different format.
After the 2014-2015 school year ended, I decided to stay home with my newborn son. Blogging, helping people live healthier lives with essential oils, and being a Virtual Assistant are now what keep me busy when I’m not chasing my cutie! 🙂
