Fran and Rusty

Hi there! My name is Fran Lafferty and I have been making up little worksheets and games since before I could read. I live in north Texas with my Soul Mate and 2 of my 4 children (the other 2 are off to college), along with our 6-pound Pomeranian dog (my shadow!) and 8 bearded dragons.

 
Although I managed to make it through 7+ years of college and get 3 degrees (AA in Elementary Education, BS in Criminal Justice, and MS in Information Systems Management [computers]) — while still homeschooling my 4 children — along the way I realized that my strengths lie in creating materials and working with nature and with animals — NOT in working directly with people. I am a shy intellectual introvert, and although people say I am very outgoing and friendly, I get rather exhausted being around others for very long.
Totally my bad. 🙁

 
From January 2005 until October of 2012, I was blessed with the ability to make a decent income using my strengths to build the old H.E.R. website. However, as time went by I found that most of my work energy was being drained by dealing with lost passwords, undelivered receipts, and other customer service issues. When my web host told me he was closing shop, I made the decision to re-start this site upon a WordPress foundation so that I can re-focus on my strengths and get more FUN materials out there to more people – for FREE!   This also led to the creation of a dozen other sites, some of which are ready for public use, others that will not be ready for a while yet.

 
You can find more pics of me & my family, along with screenshots and links to my current websites by visiting my Gravatar Profile.

    Hey Fran,
    I want to thank you for making all your creations available for free to other teachers (and homeschoolers). I really appreciate it and look forward to trying these with my son. 🙂

    I just signed up for monthly reoccurring plan and am trying to download the pre-writing printables. When a click on the link to take me to the printables, it takes me to the membership joining page. I am logged in but can’t seem to get access to any members only stuff.

    • I am sorry for the trouble! 🙁
      I have added a login link near the top of the sidebar.

    Just wondering where you got the ZB cursive font? I’ve been looking online for one.

    Love your site, just found it today looking for lessons on the atmosphere. however, there is an ad playing a video clip under the ‘sponsor ad’ heading that I bet you’re not aware of. it’s for something called League of Angles and it says play for free so I’m guessing it’s an online game. Well the images should be R rated – really bad. Just thought you’d want to know. Thanks again for the great site.

    • I am sorry about that — the ads are controlled by Google AdSense. I will seek a solution. 😳

      • I sincerely apologize to anyone who saw inappropriate ads on this site. I am embarrassed to say the least! 😳
        The problem has been resolved. I did not realize I had to actively BLOCK ads like that — I naively thought Google AdSense did not allow such ads in their network!
        Thank you all for bringing this to my attention, and educating me to the truth of modern-day advertisements! 🙂

    The new HER website is a little confusing. I am a mmember trying to access the member printables and there is no Login box. What’s going on?

    • I am sorry. Perhaps the simplicity has made it seem more complex. I know how technology can do that…

      All you have to do is click one of the Premium (members-only) posts, and if you are logged in it will open immediately, and if it doesn’t it will say “Please login to view this content”. The word “login” is in blue — it is a link to the login page.
