About Me


My name is Laney. Not only is my degree in Middle School Math & Science, but I’ve been teaching full time in those areas for 8 years.

I spent my first four years in Tennessee, but then I decided to take a leap of faith and switch to international teaching. I’ve been in Abu Dhabi ever since.

I’m a completely regular teacher, and I want to learn and grow with you! I am committed to confidence, integrity, and connection. I stand firmly on my experience and knowledge to provide the best advice that I can give. This blog is intended to combine the wealth of my own knowledge with the resources accumulated to be as helpful as possible to other classroom teachers.

It’s a fun custom to wear traditional Emirati on National Day when we celebrate our country’s anniversary!

My missions and passions include:

  • Reach as many teachers as possible. Open up the conversation about classroom management and the challenges of being presentable and accountable to large groups of adolescents every single day. Be the mentor I wish I’d had.
  • Provide resources that help STEM teachers teach today.
  • Cut out the performative fakery in teacher to teacher relationships. Increase vulnerability and honesty.

I’ve also been running my Teachers Pay Teachers store for over 6 years now. If you’ve arrived at this page as a fellow TPT author or science blogger, I’d love to talk about possible collaborations! Please email me at laneyleeteaches@gmail.com and tell me a little about yourself.
