Heart of Dakota Tidbit:
Teamwork Carries the Day!
Did you know that Carrie and Julie (Carrie’s sister and editor) shared one public school teaching position prior to coming home to teach their own children? They did this by teaching 2 days one week and 3 days the next week. Together, they were allowed to “loop” a 3rd grade class by following them up to 4th grade; this enabled them to stay with the same group of children for 2 years. This may be a common practice these days, but 15 years ago this was quite a novel approach to teaching elementary children (in South Dakota anyway . . .)
Even though their public school days are behind them, Carrie and Julie’s teamwork days are far from over! Nowadays, they are privileged to continue working together to help you, our valued HOD customers! 😀
Have a great weekend!
PS: To see why we think homeschooling provides a “looping” education at its best, have a look at this blog article below!
