shelleyShelley Breivogel + Kimber Scarlett

For our first Educator Spotlight of the year, we had the pleasure of chatting with two lovely ladies from Evansville, Indiana. Kimber Scarlett and Shelley Breivogel are second grade teachers at Scott Elementary School. They discovered Symbaloo early last year and are using it in several different ways with teachers, students and parents. For example, they collaborate with a few other teachers at their school and together they use SymbalooEDU as apart of their curriculum mapping each month.

Kimber and Shelley explain the details of their curriculum mapping and other ways they’ve been using SymbalooEDU in the video below. It’s a little bit lengthy but well worth viewing!
