Barbara: I have taught for 7 years. Currently, I am teaching 1st grade but spent time in both kindergarten and 4th grade. Mary: I have taught for 17 years. Currently, I am teaching 2nd grade but have taught pre-school- 3rd grade.
Our teaching styles are very similar. We both believe that a teacher's true calling is to inspire children to want to learn. Once our students are excited about learning, our jobs become easier!
