Kitchen Conversations

Kitchen Conversations

By Aisha and Dave Crumbine
After 28 years of teaching, a few awards, founding a company that helps parents find excellent schools, and a chapter in a book on Amazon, husband and wife, Aisha and Dave Crumbine, love chatting in their kitchen to find answers to teacher, parent, and life questions. Yes, we know that was a really long sentence.
