Joan and her sister Gail (Boushey) grew up in a small town and farming community with four other siblings.
"When we were little, our parents bought a piece of property that included an old condemned girls' academy. Having a huge, empty, four-story 'playhouse' in our backyard, our days were filled with pretending and playing with our siblings. We each had our own room in this dilapidated building, many of which were classrooms complete with the warped blackboards of old. This imaginative play led to the magical type of 'teaching' only a child could understand. It is no wonder three of our six siblings became teachers!"
"The Sisters," as they are known, continue their magical teaching today, consulting across the nation, and presenting at NCTE, IRA and state reading conferences.
Gail is a literacy coach and Joan is a K-2 multiage teacher.
Joan enjoys gardening, golfing, and working on their website. She and her sister are very close. "We love being together and are the very best of friends! When we are with each other, we are always at home."
