We both currently teach Kindergarten at a school in California and love it! Rebecca is in her eighth year of teaching. She taught for four years in second grade and is now in her fourth year of teaching kindergarten. Prior to being a teacher, she was a lifeguard, swim/dive team coach, gymnastics instructor, and a babysitter. Whitney is currently in her fifth year of teaching. She taught first grade and is now in her fourth year teaching kindergarten. Prior to working in the classroom, she shared her love of dance by teaching children ages 2-18.
We are both huge supporters of hands on activities integrated thematic curriculum!
