Carrie has been in the public school setting full-time for 17 years. JD has just completed his 3rd year in the private school setting.
We love teaching little ones. We both have a clear set of rules that our students follow, as well as laughing a lot! We use our own 2 children in teaching stories each and every day. At home we love to collaborate!
We have served on several school committees including Curriculum Council, team leader, interview panels, and tech mentor. Carrie also is currently serving her 5th year as BTSA mentor to beginning teachers.
Carrie attended UC Davis for 4 years, with a major in Human Development. Her master's in Curriculum and Instruction is from USC and was trained by Sandra Kaplan in Depth and Complexity. JD graduated from UCLA in Political Science, then went back to school to complete his teaching credential program at National University.
We have been married as long as Carrie has been teaching - 17 years. We have 2 wonderful boys who are both in the "double digits".
