Sentence construction 101

I'm reading this career guidance book instead of working on my papers. Check out this sentence:

"After graduating with a degree in elementary education, Monica taught kindergarten and then emotionally disturbed seven-to-nine-year-olds for a total of six years."

Which of the rewrites below better captures the meaning of the above sentence?

1. After graduating with a degree in elementary education, Monica taught kindergarten and then taught emotionally-disturbed seven-to-nine-year-olds for a total of six years.

2. After graduating with a degree in elementary education, Monica taught kindergarten and then she emotionally disturbed seven-to-nine-year-olds for a total of six years.

You decide.
