TEACHING EXPERIENCE

35 years teaching experience: I started out with no background knowledge in Science ~ so that was my first priority to learn. Now science is my favorite subject!!! Every child who leaves my class loves science.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Project Based: I always have 2-3 projects going.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I went to Fresno Pacific University for my BA & teaching credential. I have just completed my masters thesis.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am a sand collector. If I find out that you are traveling somewhere, I'll probably ask you for a scoop of sand. I use the sand in the "best" science lessons ever! I can't wait to upload some of those lessons.
