I am a Texas teacher and I LOVE Science. I taught 5th grade in Texas. Science, English Language Arts, and Social Studies were my main area of expertise in an Exemplary Elementary School. So, I know the demands of preparing students to pass STAAR tests (standardized testing). I also taught 5th grade Language Arts and taught middle school (7th and 8th grade) Science. As the head Science teacher in an elementary school, I have worked to create resources to help elementary teachers build a foundation in science skills and concepts. Science is fun for kids, and teaching it can be just as fun for the teachers! You just need the right resources to make teaching Science simple and successful.

I believe in making learning fun and meaningful to each student! Having an interactive, hands on, student-directed classroom makes learning come alive for the students, and time flies by for students and teachers. With the right resources and attitude, you can easily make your classroom a playground for learning. Movement, talking, and playing are all very important to me in my lessons. I try to balance activity with structured reading and writing time in every class. Each of my lessons uses the"fun stuff" to make sure the kids get the standards and know them very well.
