Diary of a Not So Wimpy Teacher: About Me

About Me

Hi! I'm Jamie Sears. Thanks for taking a peak into my diary. Let me tell you a little about myself.

Twelve years ago, I married my high school sweetheart.


This is a photo from our vow renewal on the beach in Cabo San Lucas.

Scott is a pediatric nurse at a nearby children's hospital. He spends countless hours volunteering in my classroom!

I am blessed to be the mother of four adorable kiddos.


This is Kyler. He is ten and in the 5th grade. He loves Star Wars, Legos and Harry Potter. He is just like his father so I can't help but love him to death!


This is Danika. She is nine and in the 4th grade. She loves music and reading anything and everything she can get her hands on. She is super smart and sassy. Scott says that she is my mini-me!


This is Makenzie. She is Danika's twin, so she is also nine and in the 4th grade. She loves puppy dogs and Barbie dolls. She is as sweet as cotton candy. I kid you not.


This is Laynee. She is eight and in the 3rd grade. She is in my class! Laynee loves ladybugs, monkeys and Barbie dolls. She is momma's girl!

Now you have met the clan!

More about me...

I went to Northern Arizona University and studied Political Science with an emphasis in the American Legal System. After college, I spent some time working in the state senate, the state attorney general's office and lobbied for the state supreme court.

After having the twins, I had the opportunity to stay home with my babies and I jumped on it. I stayed home with them until Laynee was in Kindergarten. I will always treasure those years.

I went back to school and got my certificate to teach government in high school. But while finishing my degree, I spent a lot of time volunteering in my kids' classrooms. I felt at home! My husband didn't even bat an eye when I announced that I wanted to get an elementary certification! He rocks!

I am entering my third year as a third grade teacher. I LOVE it! The kids are old enough to be independent, but young enough to think I am pretty cool.

About half way into my first year of teaching, I started making my own resources, Co-workers and friends convinced me to start selling my work. This business has become a passion for me. I love creating something that students around the country can benefit from.

You will find that my products are innovative, hands-on, standards based, and fun! That is the type of teacher I strive to be everyday!

Enjoy!
