About Education With An Apron

Welcome! I’m LaNesha Tabb. I show primary teachers how to make ALL subjects globally relevant, authentic, and FUN so that students become independent workers and critical thinkers. These passions are woven throughout everything that we create. While we love to create content and resources for all subject areas, you will notice two passions topics on this site: social studies and writing. Wait! Before you say that you don’t teach social studies, just remember this: if you teach humans, you teach social studies!

I am here to empower teachers to deliver powerful writing instruction so that students are able to independently create quality pieces of writing. I believe sound writing instruction will only yield stronger readers. Are you in need of support in your writing instruction? I’ve got you covered! If you believe that primary learners can be shown real-world concepts that will shape their view and place in the world from kindergarten- all while remaining developmentally appropriate… this is the place for you!

I also love spending my time encouraging teachers to break out of the same lessons and ideas that have been taught for decades! There is an entire world full of amazing topics and people that we could be learning about…and I can show teachers how If you have always felt that writing should be more than responding to prompts or participating in workshops where all students are asked to write at the exact same pace… I’m your new teacher bestie. 

P.S. You may be wondering about the aprons. There’s nothing to them other than the fact that I would wear black dresses to work nearly every day- and the aprons are a cute way to disguise that fact! I may or may not own over 70 aprons! They are the perfect addition to a busy teacher’s wardrobe- especially when your dress doesn’t have any pockets!

Meet LaNesha

On a personal note…

I’m LaNesha (luh-nee-sh-uh) and I’m so glad you are here! I’m a wife to the most amazing husband and father, a mom to two children (Lillian and David Jr.), and a former educator with 15 years in the classroom.  I am definitely a home-body. I love to snuggle up with my family and enjoy the comforts of our cozy home. I am also a Zumba instructor. I owe everything I am to my Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. I love to make things beautiful but I also love to go against the grain a bit (like, no, Joanna, every wall doesn’t need shiplap!) I’m a proud supporter of my culture. I believe representation matters and I do everything in my power and platform to show my children a world that reflects the beautiful people that they are. I love connecting with educators, so I’m glad you are here!

I am now a published author! I co-wrote Unpack Your Impact with Naomi O’Brien, and my first self-published book entitled Alpert
