TEACHING EXPERIENCE

It's hard to believe that we've been in the education field for as long as we have! It goes by in the blink of an eye, it seems. We're so lucky to work in supportive and encouraging environments. Our collection of experiences ranges from teaching elementary through graduate level college courses. From kindergarten to middle school, to high school and beyond, we've done it all. Coaching volleyball at the high school level for 10+ years is also on our list. With experience comes knowledge and mostly, an understanding of how to effectively work with students and the school community. We hope that our resources reflect that encourage students to want to be a part of their learning communities as well.
