About Me

Welcome!

My name is Peggy Means. I am a child of God and a retired elementary teacher.  I had 41 wonderful & amazing years in the classroom!

When I was in the classroom, I loved teaching and creating engaging resources for my students.

Now, I love sharing my resources and ideas with busy teachers around the world.

Why Primary Flourish?

I named this blog ‘Primary Flourish’ because that is my heart’s passion – to help primary teachers and students to flourish!

I love that word ‘flourish’ don’t you?! It implies thriving above and beyond the ‘normal’, the average. It implies greatness in the entire person- body, soul, and spirit.

I know that is what we all, as teachers, want for our students, as well as for ourselves . . . we want them, we want us. . . to flourish!

This blog is dedicated to you, hard working teachers, parents, and tutors, who desire to see your students flourish, and flourish yourselves on the journey!

My Journey

I started teaching in 1972, and retired in 2013 - so you can imagine I've 'seen a thing or two' in education!  I always tried to figure out how to meet the diverse needs of my students - just like you!  

When I did not have access to resources, I started creating my own and fine tuned them as I learned from my students.  Most of my resources that I share about on this blog, and have in my Teachers Pay Teachers Store grew out of those early resources that I developed to meet specific needs I observed in the classroom.

Through the years in the classroom, I recognized some crucial areas that were just not being mastered by students:

Since my retirement in 2013, I have made it my mission to fine-tune and add to these areas of need because I know that teachers are looking for effective and engaging resources to meet these essential needs for their students.  

I would be honored to partner with you and share resources and ideas with you.  Please visit my Free Resource Library.
