Engaging Young Minds is a partnership between two teachers that work and play at the same school. Brenda has been a teaching for 27 years. She has taught in three states, teaching second-fourth grades in the classroom, and teaching grades K-5 as a media specialist. Brenda is currently a lead teacher at elementary school serving all grades K-5. Kim has been teaching for 5 years in fourth and fifth grades. She specializes in math and science.
Our teaching styles span the years, however, our styles are very similar. We believe that students learn through exploration, engagement, and cooperation. Learning should be academically challenging with attention to high standards and rigor.
