Hey teachers! We're Claire and Terry, two Ontario teachers with a combined 40+ years of teaching experience! Claire is the upper elementary teacher and Terry specializes in middle school. We believe in creating engaging yet rigorous learning opportunities that build problem-solving and critical thinking in our students. BUT we believe teachers need a life outside the classroom too! We're here to help with teaching tips and resources focused on Language Arts, Math and Assessment from grades 4-8. You can find lots of useful resources on our blog too!
We both believe in student-led, inquiry-based learning. Our lessons provide opportunities for students to collaborate and problem solve while we provide the support and instruction needed to excel.
Yet to be added
Both of us have a Bachelor of Education. Terry has a Masters in Education. Claire has Media Specialist and Integration of Information and Computer Technology in the Classroom Specialist.
