About Me


My name is Jamie Rector and I was born and raised in Kentucky. I have been teaching elementary school since 2003. I have teaching experience in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades, as well as multi-age classrooms. I also taught as an adjunct university professor in the Elementary Education department at Western Kentucky University. I have my Bachelor's degree, Master's degree, and Rank 1 Certification with a Gifted Education Endorsement and Math Specialist. It's no secret that I love to learn.

Professional Development Creator:

I have also designed and presented many professional development training sessions for my school, district, and state. I have a strong passion for curriculum and instruction and I love helping teachers alongside students.

These are a few of the professional development experiences that I have designed and presented over the years:

  • Web 2.0 Tools to Differentiate Instruction - KY ASCD, WCPS
  • Differentiation using Technology - WKU
  • Unpacking the Common Core Standards - WCPS
  • Differentiating Instruction with CCSS - BCSD
  • Differentiating Instruction and Assessment - KYSTE
  • Digging Deeper: New Ideas in Standards-Based Math Instruction - KY ASCD, Toyota MTLA

Curriculum Designer:

I have been designing curriculum resources for teachers since 2011 in my TeachersPayTeachers Store. I have sold over 87,000 products and have had over 1.1 million downloads. I love knowing that the classroom tips I share and the products and online professional development experiences that I create are making a difference in the lives of students and teachers around the world.
