We are two teachers with 40 years of elementary teaching experience in grades 4-7 in the state of Arizona.
Our teaching styles range from whole group to individualized instruction depending upon the needs of our students. Our students are seated in cooperative groups and work individually as well as in teams. We enjoy working in a self-contained environment and philosophically believe that students learn best when there are multiple levels of intelligence contributing to the success of the classroom.
We have published 60 + books focusing on American History, State History, and United States Regions. We have also created Literature Study Guides for Charlotte's Web, Cricket in Times Square, Enormous Egg, and Sarah, Plain and Tall.
We each hold Bachelor's degrees in Elementary Education and Master's Degrees in Industrial Technology.
