We have always believed that teacher collaboration gives the students endless possibilities and that is how we started our Double Dose of Learning journey together. We LOVE what we do, and our passion for creating rigorous and engaging materials, differentiating instruction, and teaching high quality science/social studies content tied to ELA standards is evident in everything we do! Everything we create is student-based, student tested, and SUCCESSFUL with our students!!
