Meet Amy


Teaching is hard. 

No doubt about it. It’s hard because reaching our 21st century students is difficult; they think so differently than we do. It’s hard because it is not just about transferring content into our students’ little brains. Just teaching is simply not enough.

It’s scary…I know … but take a deep breath. In … and then out. And keep reading.

Do any of these statements relate to you?


  • You want to REACH your students but have trouble connecting sometimes.
  • You want to IGNITE something inside of them but have difficulties motivating your students.
  • You want to create LIFELONG learners but don't know where to start.
  • You want to EMPOWER students so that they can be successful beyond the walls of your classroom. but need guidance.
  • You don't feel like you have everything or know everything to do your job effectively.

Wouldn't it be lovely to have someone plan and guide your through exciting cross-curricular projects that MOTIVATE and EMPOWER your students to be LIFELONG learners?


This is just what I want to help you with! Take another deep breath...you are not alone in this struggle!

I want to help you REACH your students and IGNITE that wonder inside of them.

I want to support you while you CONNECT with your students over exciting projects that are infused with the 21st century skills of collaboration and problem solving.

Hand-in-hand, we can do this together.

I am passionate about helping YOU positively impact your students’ lives. After teaching for over 15 years, I started this blog and my Teachers Pay Teachers store to help my fellow teachers (YOU) go beyond just teaching content.

I want to aid you in EMPOWERING your students to be LIFELONG leaners!


When I say empowering, I mean giving students the POWER over their own learning. Enabling them to reach further beyond just the content. And providing our students with a foundation to learn SKILLS that enable them to learn beyond our classroom walls. Skills they will need in the future for jobs that may not even exist yet.

I am super excited to work with you on reaching your students!

In my online Teachers Pay Teachers store, will find many cross-curricular projects that are centered around literature and reading, writing, math, and STEM. These projects are anchored in content and infused with collaboration and problem solving. Each resource has exactly what you need to step right into the project. The end result is students that are EMPOWERED to take their skills and learning outside our classroom walls AND teachers that know they are making a significant difference in their students' lives.

As we go on this journey together, you might want to know a little more about me. 


I am Amy Wendel, the Tech Crazy Teacher, and I am a small-town girl from Southeast Missouri transplanted by the Army to Clarksville, Tennessee. My 2 children consider themselves Tennesseans. I have a son and a daughter who are both attending the University of Tennessee, in Knoxville. You really can't get much more Tennessee than that! I have had to learn how to say things like, "Go Big Orange!" and, “Vol for life!”  Yikes! 

One of my favorite pass-times is taking pictures of my kids. My daughter tolerates this much better than my son does. Here is one of my recent favorites!




I have a Early Childhood Degree, a Masters in Education, and too many classes on (or is it in) technology to count! I have been teaching for over 15 years and recently made the switch to Educational Technologist. I have taught Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 3rd grade. I teach on an Army installation and all of my kiddos have soldiers for parents. I love supporting them as they serve our country!

You will most likely find me behind a book or a computer!

I can't wait to get to know you!
