TEACHING EXPERIENCE

The Fun Factory is a team of two teachers with over 20 years classroom teaching experience in grades PreK through 4th grade. In addition, we have over 10 years experience as Early Childhood Specialists in the field of curriculum and professional development with a large urban school district which involved curriculum development and writing as well as district-wide teacher/administrator training. Presently, the Fun Factory teachers, Kathy and Susan, are independent consultants. Individually they have presented at local, regional, state and national conferences on such topics as Music and Movement, Thematic Planning and Teaching, Attention Deficit Disorder, Brain Based Instruction, Storytelling, Science and Math Concepts in Early Childhood, and Balanced Approach to Reading, to name just a few.

MY TEACHING STYLE

We believe in active learning which includes lots of music and movement and learning through play. We have fun while we accomplish our learning goals! Worksheets are not our friends!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Over the years, we both have had the privilege of many honors and awards. However, the most exciting has been the recent publication of my first book, Tunes for Teachers Teaching … Thematic Units, Thinking Skills, Time-on-Task and Transitions This is a life-time dream-come-true! It is a book that was written as I was teaching, inspired by those teaching around me and encouraged through teachers to pursue the trials and triumphs of looking for publishers. Thank you to you all. Look for it in our store. I hope you will find it useful.
