As identical twins, we have taught many grades. We both started out teaching lower grades and worked our way up to secondary and now post-secondary education. I (Kim) taught Kindergarten and Second grade, along with Early Childhood Education at a technical college and I now teach Early Childhood Education at a Christian University. My twin (Karon) started out in first grade, then Special Ed. 3rd, 4th, and 5th. She moved to high school and now teaches Early Childhood Education to up and coming teachers at a Christian University, along with teaching Educator Researcher and Professional Collaboration at SNU.
We both believe in a "hands-on" approach to learning and feel the best way to learn is through "doing." We love to create educational activities that make learning fun and entertaining, as well as constructivist-centered! We also feel that once a teacher models a concept they should lead students in the active engagement of learning and demonstrating the concept. We use "all things Disney" as much of our inspiration. Walt Disney was famous for educating others in a very entertaining way....we feel the same way!
