Featured seller - Renee Heiss

Tell us about yourself.

I am a retired Family Consumer Sciences teacher who now spends much of my time creating teaching aids, sewing for charity, and writing books for families.  I have been married for 45 years, have three grown daughters and seven not-so-grown grandchildren. 

What do you like best about teaching?

When I was still in the classroom, enjoyed watching the students mature in their knowledge of my Child Development class from September to June.  I would get some of the students in the second level and see them grow even more.  Very rewarding!

Describe your favorite TpT product.

My favorite TpT product is Chef Cappy’s Kitchen – STEM facts and healthy recipes for family fun – Holiday Favorites edition.  It is a collection of recipes for both secular and religious holidays that incorporates STEM facts.  The recipe directions are arranged by the age and ability of the family members to participate.

What advice would you give to someone who may want to become a seller at Teachers Pay Teachers?

I have been selling for over five years and the key to success is to keep producing.  The more you have in your “store,” the more choices you make available to prospective buyers.

What have you done or hope to do with your TpT earnings?

I take most of my TpT earnings and “spend” it at Donors Choose to support teachers who need resources that are not digital.  It’s a wonderful system and I feel like I have my own little philanthropy going on here.  The other part of the earnings go into marketing – not my favorite way to spend the earnings, but a necessary evil!

What do you like best about being a member of The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative?

I like the exposure that I’m getting for my store that I haven’t gotten in the first five years of my participation.  The moderators are very supportive.
