TEACHING EXPERIENCE

We are two teachers who LOVE sharing ideas and having fun with our students. We teach first and second grade and couldn't imagine doing anything else.

MY TEACHING STYLE

We love anything creative and fun that gets our kiddos inspired to learn. Sometimes this includes us dressing up as the characters from our books (like our favorite, Once Upon a Cool Motorcycle Dude by Kevin O'Malley) dancing like we have "ants in our pants" (check out Eric Harmon's video on Youtube to get the full picture) or just generally standing on our heads!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Self proclaimed super stars who are honored to teach first and second grade.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

BS-Elementary Education MEd. Teaching and Learning Gifted, Talented, Creative Education Certificate

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

We love coffee, chocolate, shoes, teaching, our own kiddos, our husbands, teaching, and our students...but not necessarily in that order. :)

Teachers Pay Teachers is an online marketplace where teachers buy and sell original educational materials.
