Hey there! My name is Annette, founder of count on kupe.

I am a full-time math teacher in a public school, TPT author, online business owner, and single mom of two amazing kids. Stick around if you want to hear how it all started and how I work to manage it all.

My TPT Story

As a math teacher, I am constantly searching for ways to engage my students and make learning fun. I searched Google and TPT and couldn’t find anything that quite fit the needs of my students. This is one of the reasons I started to create your own resources. I wanted to provide my students with activities that were not only effective but also engaging. That’s how I got started on TPT, and it’s been an amazing journey ever since.

Creating resources for TPT has been a game-changer for me. Not only has it allowed me to create resources that fit the exact needs of my students, but it’s also given me an opportunity to share my passion with other math teachers all over the world. And, truth be told, it is a nice side hustle to help pay the bills. 

But being a TPT author isn’t the only thing on my plate. As a single mom of two kids, I also have to balance my responsibilities at home with my job as a full-time teacher. It is like having three full time jobs! What I like about TPT is I can work on it when I have time and take a break on those busier weeks. Time management, prioritization of what is the most important, and asking for help are key. I’ve found that staying organized and sticking to a schedule helps me make the most of my time. 

Being a mom, full-time teacher, and TPT author is definitely a balancing act, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I am passionate about math education, and I love being able to share that passion with others. If you’re a math teacher who wants to create engaging math creations and sell resources on TPT, I encourage you to take the leap and start creating!
