Meet The Teachers

We are a husband and wife teacher team who love integrating social studies and science into other subjects for diverse elementary classrooms.

Meet James and Dana, a couple of teachers who actually fell in love through our love of education! After our college assigned us to student teach in the same elementary school, we decided to “conserve gas” and carpool. Each day, we shared our classroom happenings, the joys and frustrations of being new teachers, exhaustion and passion for our students, and somehow, fell in love along the way. We married in 2010 after completing our first year of teaching. We have been blessed with two precious daughters, Ellie Claire and Hadley. We live a small town in north Georgia, where James is in his tenth year teaching third grade in a Title I school. Dana is currently homeschooling first grade, and working to get quality resources into the hands of teachers around the world through Bow Tie Guy & Wife.

      

James has taught 9 years, 2 in special education (1st through 5) and 4 in fourth grade, and is now starting his fourth year in third grade. Dana has also taught 7 years in the same district as James. After 4 years in second grade, she was ready for another challenge. She spent 1 year teaching in third grade, and completed  two years of teaching littles in kindergarten! Between us, we've taught all elementary grades and love it!
