I have over 15 years of experience as a middle school science teacher and high school biology teacher in Texas. I am also a science/biology university instructor. Middle school science in Texas is integrated. As a result, my materials cover a wide range of science topics.
Hands-on, creative, and interactive lessons are a must. Inquiry-based labs and stations-based activities are a classroom favorite. When it comes to science,however, the new vocabulary can be overwhelming to students. Opportunities for notes and review, clarifying important concepts and terms, are helpful to my students as well.
I participated in marine biology research via an NSF grant, writing lesson plans for students that taught them about the work of the scientists.
I have a BS and MS in Biology. I am a certified science teacher for grades 6-12 in the state of Texas.
I love teaching and hope you find my products useful in your classroom! :)
