We are two teachers from California that are currently teaching 4th and 5th grade, respectively. We collectively have experience teaching grades preschool to 8th grade. Between the both of us, we have many years of Instructional Technology experience and a Masters of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction.
Over time, we have collaborated closely, as our philosophies of teaching are similar. In general, we would like our students to be in a continuous state of creativity, where they can develop into curious, innovative, thoughtful individuals who value the currency of knowledge for the sake of knowledge. Everything that we do in the classroom, we incorporate 21st Century Skills: critical thinking, communication, creativity, and collaboration. In addition, integrating technology effectively into the curriculum has become a focal point of our instruction to help students meet their 21st Century goals.
