Work With Me
Hi! My name is Heather Vanderboom,
I’m a curriculum designer.
I began designing Teachers Pay Teachers (Fiddleheads) resources in 2013. With about 15 resources in my store, I left it alone until January 2018. Slowly, I started to add more products and improve my store. It was not until the 2018 Nashville conference when things really started to take off for my TpT business.
The 2018-2019 school year was a particularly hard year. I was battling a few medical issues and was given a class of documented behavioral and academically low students. I was told, “I know you can handle them. If you can’t get them to read, no one can. Take it as a compliment.” Needless to say, I started pouring my heart into my TpT resources. And after 12 years of teaching in the classroom, I retired in 2019.
Now I am designing curriculum full time. Please reach out to me if you have any questions or suggestions.
Check out my resources!
Hands On Phonics Centers
Your students will have to have hands-on centers. Check out these phonic centers that I created for grades K-2.
Google Slides Games
Google Slides is a great way to keep students engaged. I have Google Slide Games for grades K-5
Boom Card Decks
Boom Cards are great becuase they are self checking and self grading. This is great for RTI!
No Prep Printables
No laminating, color ink, cutting, etc. Just print and your students will enjoy these FUN and engaging worksheets. Great for morning work, reading rotations, ELA Centers, interventions, and so much more!
