TEACHING EXPERIENCE

We have been teaching for many many years and still LOVE it! We also LOVE to sing! We create SINGABLES that teach Early Literacy learning concepts and Common Core Standards using singable texts. Our Singables are sung to familiar tunes like "Itsy Bitsy Spider"or " Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" etc. They come with a "mini-movie" which displays the pages of the book with our voices singing along! Our students remember more and enjoy learning through music. Some of our Best Sellers are our Non-fiction thematic units like "Baffling Bats" and "Peculiar Penguins". These come loaded with Literacy and Math Center activities, resources, and printables. Also popular are our Learning Center games. Jackie has been teaching for 40 years and still LOVES it! She has been a Special Education teacher, taught Grades 1, 3, & 4 and is now in Kindergarten - her favorite grade! She was a mentor teacher and an Early Literacy coach. Kylene taught for 33 years and was a Early Childhood teacher, Reading Specialist, a multi-age and 1st grade teacher before becoming an elementary principal. She was also an Early Literacy coach. Their collaboration started as first grade teachers when they discovered they both loved creating children's songs and curriculum activities for literacy and math! Together they have taught at the university level for teacher extension classes in Early Literacy and presented many times at Reading and Kindergarten conferences and workshops.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Student-based learning with a focus on balanced literacy and hands-on math! We use lively activities (many involve songs!) that incorporate all learning styles & get our students engaged! We love to involve parents in their children's education so we also develop activities that connect home and school!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Both have been Teachers of the Year at their schools. Both have been involved in leadership in their district and helped win the California Distinquished School Award for each of their school sites! Jackie's school won 3 times in 10 years!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Jackie graduated with her B.A. from Western Michigan University & M.A. in Special Education from Oakland University (MI) before heading out to California to continue her teaching career. Kylene graduated with her B.A. from Humboldt State and her M.A. from Chapman University. Both have taken (and taught) numerous workshops that have helped build their deep understanding of balanced literacy!

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Both Jackie and Kylene share a love of family and animals! Jackie has 2 spoiled miniature Schnauzers, Gracie Lou and Nelson! Kylene has a dog named Breia, lots of cats, and a pasture full of llamas....oh, and a hard-working hubbie named George! Both love to read and Jackie is an avid quilter and Kylene loves to garden!
