We are so excited to get started on this journey together.
We are three teachers from Minnesota that love to teach, gab, and learn together. We have been collaborating together for 6 years and decided to start a blog since we believe in working smarter not harder. We truly are examples of our motto: "Teamwork: Simply stated: it is less me and more we." (Author unknown)
We teach 1st and 2nd grade in different buildings in different towns. Our friendship began via email. (See...I told you we were good at gabbing.) Once we started sharing our educational materials together, we also started sharing many late nights with Diet Coke - often just over email. This has continued to grow throughout the years. This year, we really needed each other as we implemented Action 100 in our classrooms. (Thank goodness for good friends, collaboration, and Diet Coke.)
Currently, Kate and Jolene are "livin' the life" of part-time teachers. They job-share at the first grade level and enjoy the opportunity to volunteer in their children's classrooms on their days off.
Kik is a 2nd grade teacher who doesn't like to talk about herself so this is the only personal info you will get about her on this blog. :)
Check back often. We have a lot to talk about and inspirational ideas to share.
