TEACHING EXPERIENCE

From September to June, we teach first and second grade in a small, suburban town in Connecticut. We love our jobs, our school, and most of all, our students. We pour our hearts into designing memorable learning experiences for our students, and love creating our own resources for our classrooms and colleagues. When the world gets overwhelming, we get out our favorite pack of crayons and color. From June to Late August, we recharge by spending as much time as we can on the water. We love our dogs, our boats, and our summer suntans!

MY TEACHING STYLE

We sing, we dance, we make learning magical!
