TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a classroom teacher as well as a science curriculum specialist for a large southeastern district. I have one book currently in press with NSTA and another book chapter in press with R&L Publishing. In the past few years I have written three textbooks, but nothing provides me with more joy than writing short pieces of informational text that are used everyday in classrooms. The team I work with has vast experience in the K-5 world, are all exceptional writers as well as being quite knowledgeable about science content.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelor's of Science Degree from Southern Illinois University in Geology/Earth Science. Master's of Science in Science Education from Florida State University Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction specializing in Science Education from the University of South Florida. My cognate is a combination of Writing and Instructional Technology.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I must admit, I do not write alone, nor would I want to. I work with the best writing team in the world. They each come with unique skills that make them invaluable to this project. We started this project out of desperation just to help the teachers we support. It has turned into far more than we ever expected. Our only goal is to put great science text into the hands of children.
