Katie has taught for a total of 13 years. She taught Special Ed for 1 year, 3rd grade for 3 years, and has taught 2nd grade for 9 years. Lisen has taught for a total of 16 years, all in 2nd grade.
We love to teach with lots of hands on activities! We have found that with the little ones anything that involves moving, talking, or working with partners or groups seems to grab and keep the kiddos attention the most!
Both of our hubbies think we deserve an award for being full time mommies of 3 and teachers!
Katie graduated from Emporia State University. Lisen graduated from MidAmerica Nazarene University and has her Masters in Reading Specialist from Emporia State University
Both of us are busy mothers of 3. We love our jobs teaching and we love our jobs being mothers! We are so busy with our own kiddos at home that our creativity is limited to things that we can use in our jobs as teachers. So we LOVE to create things that we can use in our classrooms. Everything we have on TPT we have used in our own classrooms or had other grade levels in our building test out!
