Teresa - Received my teaching degree and certificate in Elementary K-6 Education and taught in the public school setting for six years, working with various grade levels including Kinder, 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th grades. While teaching I completed my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction. This degree helped focus my instruction to ensure that my lessons were incorporating all learning styles. ******************** Julie - I was an adjunct professor at the University of Miami, School of Communication, for over five years. My specialty teaching areas were writing and public speaking. In addition, I taught leadership courses at Miami-Dade College for the past six years to student leaders and staff in Student Services. I am a mom of 3, all of which I schooled at home up to three years old and have accumulated a multitude of hours volunteering in their Montessori classrooms. From field trip planner to reading buddy and classroom aid!

I opened-up their world through the senses, through touch, taste and smell. I gave them spices to smell, foods to touch and taste, such as garlic, onions, limes and peppers. As they got older, they started mixing, pouring, measuring, cutting, and serving. I noticed I was teaching them math, science and language arts. They were learning to recognize numbers, letters and developing fine and gross motor skills that transferred into other areas of play and development. I started to develop two passions in my daily life with my kids: Food and Education! Follow WhiskingApples on Instagram or Facebook for more information on us! or visit us at www.whiskingapples.com
