Kim's experience consists of 9 years in fourth grade, 4 years in third grade, and 3 years in the role of Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment Specialist. She currently services her district's elementary schools with a focus on math. Savannah has been in the classroom for 9 years, teaching first, second, and fourth grades. She just finished her doctorate in P-12 Administration.
Kim and Savannah have worked together closely many years. Both of them passionately believe in student-centered instruction, where students have control of their learning. Both educators believe in teaching conceptually (especially in mathematics) and providing students opportunities for hands-on, meaningful learning experiences. They believe that students should discover concepts on their own with guidance from their teacher instead of being told how or why things work. Discussion among students is one of the most powerful tools they use in the classroom. Kim and Savannah both believe in differentiating instruction to ensure that each student receives meaningful lessons.
