We are 6 and 7 year teachers who have experience in a variety of elementary classrooms. Have have taught in a variety of grade levels throughout the years. Diane is currently teaching grade 3. Kelly is the Math Coordinator at our local BOCES and Michele an Instructional Coach for an Elementary School working with PreK-6 teachers.
Our teaching style would be considered eclectic. It is like having an Ipod full of a range of music from classical to Rock to R&B. We pride ourselves for taking what works in traditional teaching and infusing it with the modern times. We hold high expectations for our students and believe that they are capable of achieving the high standards set by the Common Core if given the appropriate tools, resources and support.
Our first book entitled The Math GNOMe: Creating the Math Common Core Classroom has officially been published through Creative Teaching Press!
All three of us hold a Masters in Education from New York State institutes.
We call ourselves the Work Wives because we support, collaborate, and have a passion for each of our careers in education.
