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