We have 32 years of teaching experience combined. We each have earned our master degrees in Reading Education and are both Nationally Board Certified.
We believe that teaching is a truly collaborative effort by teaching that integrates strengths of all teachers on our team. Integrating technology into our curriculum and daily lessons increases student interest and engagement. Our classroom is set up using a balanced literacy model that intertwines reading and writing together. We integrate language arts skills into math, science, and social studies on a daily basis so children understand the importance of literacy skills in all subject areas.
