We are a husband and wife team from Texas. I had so much fun in fourth grade that I decided I would be a fourth grade teacher when I grew up... and here I am! I have taught fourth grade for the last 11 of my 20 years of teaching. I have also taught second and third grades. My husband spent 25 years in corporate business. He later transitioned to teaching and coaching. Teaching career-based curriculum allows him to leverage his corporate experience by helping students explore current and up and coming careers.
We believe that the longer we teach, the more there is to learn! My biggest goal each year is to instill a love of reading and writing in my students. I strive to be a positive part of a child's journey to become a lifelong reader/writer. My husband's goal is to help students discover their passions in life and align these with a satisfying career.
I have been honored to work with Mentoring Minds over the past years as a writer. I created their Writing RoundUp series and contributed to their Motivation Reading and Motivation Writing product lines.
