My husband and I each have 6+ years of combined teaching experience in a small, religious school in urban Wisconsin. We are blessed enough to teach at the same school, kindergarten and 4th grade. The vast majority of our students are English Language Learners and most parents are bilingual or strictly Spanish speakers. We have worked tirelessly to improve our classes and our teaching styles in order to better our students and our school. We are beyond excited to share our resources!
We believe in clear expectations, hard work, and Love and Logic. We currently teach at a Catholic school but have plenty of experience in the public school setting and strive to align all our material to the Common Core Standards.
My husband is the head of the Technology committee at our school and we have lead all-staff trainings on Smartboard usage. We have also mentored individual staff members on technology for over a year.
I (Kelly, the beautiful and amazing wife) received her B.A. in Philosophy and Political Science from Carthage College. John received his B.A. from Cardinal Stritch University in Creative Writing. We met during our time at Cardinal Stritch completing Masters in Teaching Program at Cardinal Stritch program. We believe our backgrounds provide us with a unique perspective on education and we love sharing with others.
We have a passion for education! We are blessed enough to work at the same school and also have several years of experience with ELL populations. Our students and their parents are ELL learners and we bring that knowledge and experience to the materials we create. I ,(Kelly), am a fluent Spanish-speaker and John is catching on slowly but surely. We are eager to share our resources have fun on Teachers Pay Teachers!
