Friends, I cannot wait to share with you today's podcast guest, Kayla Collins. Kayla is the heart and soul behind Teach Like You Mean It, a teacher Instagram account that I've been following for years (and don’t take my word for it — check out her elegant classroom images on Instagram through the link below…). Not only does Kayla have an amazing eye for design and innovation, she does this while teaching part-time, running a very successful online TpT store, and sharing her beautiful classroom creations on teacher Instagram. Honestly, for this teacher mom, I would gladly bend time to be a student in her classroom. Her room is just that beautiful. And if I can’t be in her classroom, well, I wish she’d decorate my home! Likewise, you’re going to be sooooooooooo inspired as we talk about Kayla’s journey through education, her move to teaching part-time, her joy at becoming a new mom, and her struggle with managing postpartum depression (and much, much more).
To begin with, Kayla Collins is a design and Innovation teacher. Moreover, Kayla has over a decade of teaching experience in grades Pre K – 8th and, with a master’s degree in STEAM Curriculum and Development, she integrates the engineering design process into all subjects matters in a variety of classroom settings. Furthermore, her favorite aspects of teaching include relationship building, social and emotional learning, and giving students opportunities for real life problem solving. When Kayla started creating creative lessons and skits to reach her specific students’ needs and, additionally, sharing those lessons on Instagram, she stumbled upon a successful Teachers Pay Teachers business.
