Hi! I'm Karen blogging with my sister Kelly from Kennedy's Korner.  I am a New York teacher who loves traveling, sunshine, and reading. I have been teaching for 21 years now in the district I grew up in.  I took over for my Gr. 3 teacher when she retired.  I also coached for years at the high school that I attended.  I am currently teaching 2nd grade, but have taught Gr. 3 and 4 as well.

We are sisters who both are teachers - just outside Buffalo, NY.  We both grew up knowing that we wanted to be teachers some day.  We  love to travel and spend time with our family. 
I live with my boyfriend Chris and our two cats - Kato and Kody in a suburb of Buffalo, NY. 
Chris has two beautiful daughters - Lyndsy and Katie.

We also have a house in Key West, FL - where we love to spend time fishing and
enjoying some fun in the sun. 
I enjoy spending time traveling, reading, and golfing.  I also love spending time with my nieces and nephews ~ who are all growing up so fast! 

Hi! I'm Kelly ~ from Kennedy's Korner. 
 I have been teaching for 17 years.  I love teaching the little ones.  I have taught Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade.  I have 3 little girls of my own.  They are 10, 7, and 4 years old.  My husband is a Director of Curriculum at a nearby school district as well.  We spend a lot of time chatting about the Common Core, how to align the curriculum to meet the standards, and the best instructional strategies to use in the classroom.  When we are not talking about education... we love to watch our girls play softball and cheer lead.  We also love to visit our parents in Florida and take family day trips to do all sorts of fun things!  I am so glad that my sister Karen convinced me to start a TPT store with her.  I truly enjoy working with my sister to create our TPT units.  It is great sister bonding time!  We are truly grateful for all of the wonderful people we have met through the TPT community.  Our TPT friends and followers make this hobby so much fun!!!
