Tell us about yourself.
My name is Kathy Babineau. I’m a speech language pathologist at an elementary school in Florida. I work with students from Pre-K through Grade 6. In “speech” we work on everything from vocabulary, to sentence formulation, to stuttering, to social skills, to articulation and everything in between! I also create and sell products on TpT that are fun and useful for my own students.
What do you like best about teaching?
Being a speech language pathologist allows me to work with kids of all ages and to collaborate with teachers on all grade levels. Each day is a new adventure and challenge!
Describe your favorite TpT product.
My favorite TpT product is “Following Directions All Year”. It contains 50 different easy to use lessons that address following directions, vocabulary, attributes and concept terms. The lessons are connected to seasonal themes and popular topics. Teachers and SLPs love these activities because they are super low-prep, easy to use and the kids love them. I have used these activities in small groups, large language groups and in whole-class lessons. The activities are easy to differentiate if necessary.
What advice would you give to someone who may want to become a seller at Teachers Pay Teachers?
Think of what types of products are most helpful to you in your classroom. Research the TpT website including the seller’s forums. Ask questions, connect with other sellers and find your niche.
What have you done or hope to do with your TpT earnings?
I’m currently using my earnings to pay off some bills that I have. I hope to save more and take my family on a cruise!
