TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Between the two of us, we've taught for over 22 years, but A has logged the majority of those years. All of our combined years have been in a small-town Catholic School that has amazing parental, parish, and community support!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Our styles depend on the day and on the kids, but we both like to implement hands-on and experiential learning whenever we can figure out how to do it. Hence, our love for TeachersPayTeachers!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

We think we're pretty amazing... and so do most of our students. :)

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

A has a BS in Elementary Ed from an accredited MN university. J has a BA in 5-12 Comm. Arts/Literature from a different accredited MN university. A just happened to graduate from college the year J started college. Oh, well, what do a few years mean? ;)

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

One of us married a police captain; the other married an autobody technician, but both of us are thrilled with our choices and the 3 daughters and 2 sons that resulted. Either way, we're crazy busy all the time. A is a track coach extraordinaire. J is... a... well, an avid reader.
