Between Barbara, the mom, and Elaine, the daughter, we have taught at preschools, elementary schools and middle school. We have worked in non-profits, Headstart, private, public, charter and DoDEA schools in Belgium and Italy! We have lead formal and informal staff trainings, inspected preschools for quality and taught adult ed classes. Preschool accreditations, PTSA boards, advisory boards, and years of volunteering kept us busy. Barbara worked on a grant project through NAEYC to prevent child abuse. Elaine served as Data Manager for a charter school, tracking test scores and using the results to target individual instruction. She moved on to become district Math Specialist for the county and is now Asssistant Principal for an elementary school.
Differentiated instruction so all learners succeed.
Barbara was honored to receive The Navy Distinguished Public Service Award
