TEACHING EXPERIENCE

We have over 20 years of teaching experience in a variety of settings including 2nd-3rd grade looping, 2nd-3rd grade multiage, and 2nd and 3rd grade single classroom.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Our teaching style is to create hands-on, engaging lessons that promote higher-level thinking and the love of learning. We believe children learn best when they can make connections in their learning. This is most effectively done through thematic teaching. We also work hard to make our lessons open-ended so that all children can work at their own levels.
