Hello friends! Our names are Kandie Distefano and Lisa Thacker. We have been best friends for years and taught first grade side by side for ten years. We both have earned a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership. While we no longer teach together, we remain close friends. We co-own a Teacher's Pay Teacher's store entitled Our Schoolhouse Treasures. Kandie still teaches first grade while Lisa has chosen to stay at home with her newly adopted three year old son.
