I have over 15 years of experience teaching in public schools, writing curriculum, and running outdoor education programs. I specialize in Science, but make materials for elementary and middle school English Language Arts, as well.
I am an engaging, enthusiastic, and ever-curious teacher! I believe in differentiating my lessons and materials whenever possible, and making strong connections with my students. Community-building is a big priority in my classroom, which is often reflected in the materials I make.

I am a world-traveler, a musician, and a self-professed science geek!
