Being able to design your own PowerPoint slides is useful in so many ways. It can help make your PowerPoint lessons more engaging or you can use it as I do as a fun way to display morning work or activity instructions.

They Are Useful For:

1) Morning Work Templates

This is my primary use for my PowerPoint slide templates. Students love walking in to see a bright, thematic whiteboard with the day's instructions. And guess what? Because the decorative slides grab their attention, it also increases the likelihood they'll read all of your instructions on the whiteboard as well. This reduces a lot of those repetitive student questions about what to do. And that's a WIN in my teacher book!

2) Activity Instructions

Having instructions for an activity displayed in engaging written format once again helps eliminate a lot of repetitive questioning which often results in a teacher who is less tired and has more energy for the activity at hand. :)

3) Presentations For Lessons, Professional Development, Etc.

The third set of templates in this course provide a blank canvas for you to customize for any type of presentation you need in your teaching life.

Tabitha Carro

Hey, there! My name is Tabitha Carro and I've been a teacher seller since 2011. Initially, I was simply trying to make a little bit of extra money on the side as an underpaid teacher. But after a few years, I found myself making equal to my teacher salary. I should have been thrilled about that, but mostly I was just extremely exhausted. You know the expression "There's no tired like teacher tired"? Well, there's actually a worse tired than that. It's called teacher-TpT-side-hustler tired. So in 2015 I began experimenting with ways to cut back on how much I was working while still growing my business. The main tools I came up with were templates and leveraging my smartphone. Over the past few years I've packaged those two productivity practices into several programs for teacher sellers. These programs have helped over 1,000 teacher sellers save time while increasing their visual marketing and resource production. I've had the opportunity to speak on smartphone marketing at various TpT conferences and meet-ups. My biggest breakthrough of all came in 2017 when I was financially able to take a much-needed break from the classroom. My sincerest hope with the templates and tutorials I create for teachers and TPT sellers here is that they help you save time, breathe a little easier, and make the money that you deserve.
