About Me


Hi! My name is Julie Blackmore and I am currently a 5th grade Math and Social Studies teacher in New Jersey. However, I taught Language Arts for 3 years before starting fresh at a new school! I still consider myself a “new” teacher, but it feels like I’ve been doing this for many years. My #1 passion in life is classroom teaching, and a close runner-up is organization, which is apparent when you see pictures of my classroom! 🙂 I work part-time after school as a behavioral therapist specializing in Applied Behavioral Analysis, which is another passion of mine. You will see that seep into my classroom management, too! I am currently single with no children, and my free time is dedicated to…

  • Creating academic, behavioral, and organizational products for my Teachers Pay Teachers store
  • Watching my favorite TV shows (The Big Bang Theory, The Killing, Netflix docs, Grey’s Anatomy, Criminal Minds, Law and Order: SVU, sometimes the Kardashians…)
  • Spending time with friends and family, of course!!
  • Working out– my gym is AMAZING and I could spend hours there. Just looking around, not actually exercising…
  • Blogging! I love to share my ideas and the ideas I get from others, because I think that education is a field that proves we learn best from each other!
  • I’m sure there are plenty more, I just don’t work well under pressure…
