Meet The Crew!
Bonnie Jackson and Shelley Vaughn have been teaching young children for a combined total of 40 years.  
Through their teaching partnership, they have cultivated the philosophy of:  Make It FUN & Watch
Them LEARN."  In 1997, they formed what is now known as The K-Crew.

They have published many of their teaching ideas on their website: www.thekcrew.net.  Because of the
website's popularity, teachers from all over the world have requested more... more ideas, more activities,
more management tips, and more workshops in their areas.  In response, Bonnie and Shelley created
several teacher resource materials, including
Buzz Book- How to Share the Pen.  

This team presents practical and proven ideas to teach teachers how to teach "smarter" not harder...
practical because they use them in their own classrooms, and proven because they've recorded the
successes of their own students.  These ladies are dynamic!  You will realize their love for teaching
through their enthusiasm, sense of humor, and "real teachers in real classes" experiences.  Participants
are guaranteed to go home excited about what they've learned.
