A career in teaching
These days, Abby and Brittany teach elementary school in New Brighton, Minnesota. They have a concentration in math and teach both fourth and fifth grade.
How does all of this work? The two dished about it in an interview with the BBC. And in the interview, they answered a burning question: do they get two salaries or only one?
“Obviously, right away, we understand that we are going to get one salary because we’re doing the job of one person,” Abby said.
Still, Abby is hopeful that they will one day get additional compensation due to both their experience and the fact that each twin has her own degree and her own teaching license.
“As maybe experience comes in, we’d like to negotiate a little bit, considering we have two degrees and because we are able to give two different perspectives or teach in two different ways.”
The most heartwarming part of this story? Abby and Brittany’s students absolutely love this adorable teaching duo! Watch in the video above!
