A Welcome Letter From The Editors

December 23, 2016

Hi! We are so glad you made your way over to Tenspire! We are two Tennessee teachers who want to help encourage, motivate and most of all, inspire other teachers. We started dreaming about this separately months ago and then decided to join forces to share our ideas with others. We saw a need for more positivity in the teaching world and wanted to do our part to share the joy that comes with teaching littles.

At Tenspire you will find more wonderful teachers who have collaborated with us and want to share with you how they navigate the ins and outs of teaching. You will find topics on the following:

  • Math
  • Reading
  • Assessments/Data
  • Organization
  • Motherhood
  • TeachersPayTeachers Activities in all subject areas
  • Homeschool
  • Brain-based Learning

We are growing and would love for our topics and writers to continue to grow with us! We are open to new ideas and would love to hear from you and what you want to read about to help inspire you in your teaching career.

Who are we?

Katie is a third grade teacher and is in her fifth year teaching, while Kelli Lee is a first grade teacher and in her fourth year of teaching.  We both have a love for learning and are very passionate about the children we teach. We met in college through a mutual friend, but our friendship really grew when we both taught third grade at John Pittard Elementary.  Once Katie moved to help start a new school, we continued to keep in touch with frequent Starbucks hang outs. Our conversations always seemed to come back to the education world and what we could do to better. This became a time to share ideas and encourage one another.

This is a dream come true for us and we hope this is a place where you find encouragement to continue doing the best work – molding the hearts and minds of our future generation.


Thank you for stopping by and we hope you enjoy your stay!
