We are two first grade teachers in the Seattle area. Together we have taught 15 years in primary classrooms. We are passionate about learning not only for students but ourselves as educators. It’s safe to say that what we did in the classroom last year will change this year. We believe that every year is a fresh start and filled with endless possibilities. What doesn’t change is our underlying belief that as teachers our job is to empower even our youngest students so they are able to make choices about their learning. We have found that when we give students voice and choice they will exceed our expectations. We don’t have all the answers but we do believe we have something to share. We started this blog because we realize that this emphasis on 21st century learning skills combined with technology is lacking in our region especially in the primary grades. Our purpose is to share what we are learning and hopefully connect and learn with you as well.
