Mrs. P taught for nine years in public schools, and also taught at the junior college level for one year. She taught a variety of levels, from remedial reading to gifted. She is a history buff, so her students read a lot of primary sources in her class. She is currently working on her Ph.D. in literacy studies and educational psychology. All science and math materials are written by Mr. P., a science teacher with ten years experience working with multiple grade levels. His classroom games series is a great way to integrate some fun and competition or collaboration into your science lessons. His common core stations are a great resource for hands-on activities to meet CCSS in math.
Both Mr. & Mrs. P. are very creative, high-energy, with classrooms often in a state of "organized chaos." They love to keep students active and involved, and use a variety of stations and assessments in their teaching.
