The Simple Classroom


Sutherland Family 2017-223.jpg

Hey There!

I am so glad you're here! My name is Stephanie Sutherland. I am a wife, mama, and instructional coach living right outside of Nashville, TN. I have my Masters in elementary teaching, and 6 years of teaching/coaching experience under my belt, and education is still my favorite thing to study, talk about, read about, etc. 

My husband, Chris, and I have two babies: Isaiah (who is almost 2 and I can't really talk about it), and Josephine, who is about 9 months old. They are our entire world, and raising little people is the best privilege I've ever had. 

This website is a collection of all of the things I do. I design curriculum and have a TPT store (The Tennessee Classroom), I blog, and I provide services to teacherpreneurs who are growing their businesses, but feel weighed down by all of the little things that come along with it. 

So, whether you're here for some VA help, to read my blog, see my products, or just want to know a little bit more about what I'm like, welcome! I'm excited to share with you, and hopefully work with you in some capacity!

Welcome to the Tennessee Classroom.


Virtual Assistant Services for Teacherpreneurs

Pin creation, TPT Q&As, blog maintenance, updating product covers, changing out your Terms of feels like the to-do list is never-ending, and with major changes to all of our platforms (um..hello square covers! video previews! long pins!), it can be too much for one person to do alone. Working with a VA can promote your business while getting some of your free time back, and what could be better than that? 

Read below to see the services I provide.

Retainer Package

You agree to purchase a certain number of hours every month for a pre-determined set of tasks. This billing cycle can run from the 1st-1st of each month, or the 15th-15th. If you do not use your hours one month, they can roll over to the next month, reducing your cost. The rate for hourly work in this package is $20/hour. Unused hours can be rolled over for up to 6 months before they expire. 



You can hire me at an hourly rate to complete tasks one at a time, as you need help! My hourly rate for single task completion is $25/hour.

Free Consultation

Before we begin working together, I would love to get to know you a little better! Hiring me in any capacity comes with a 30 minute consultation via Google Hangout or telephone. That way you can ask any and all questions you may have about the way our professional relationship will play out, and I will be able to ask the questions I need to in order to get a better sense of your branding, and the heart behind your business!

I am a TPT Seller and blogger, and I know that your business is your baby! I want to ensure that our working relationship will be the best fit for your business right from the start.
