Jill Nolen and Laura Beaver have a combined 30 years experience in education. They have worked as regular classroom teachers as well as specialists for struggling and gifted students. While teaching across the hall from each other, Nolen and Beaver together pursued their dream of writing a book. In 2004 they published â€œInto the Tub,â€ a childrenâ€™s book that includes research-based reading strategies for parents to use during story time. Before long they realized there was a need for parent involvement education. This energetic pair found themselves traveling across the nation training educators on how to empower parents with the tools they need to help their children become successful readers.
Mrs. Nolen and Mrs. Beaver believe in engaging their students in learning activities. You will not find their students sitting quietly in their seats staring at the board, but instead you may find them in the floor under their desks singing their multiplication songs or standing in chairs challenging other classmates to a spelling bee "rapid fire" round.
