I have been teaching in Science and Gifted Education, at the elementary school setting, for 31+ years. Also, for 19+ summers, I have taught in a summer Gifted space sciences program. Currently, I am a full-time primary grades Science Teacher. I create most of the curriculum I deliver to my students. In addition, I have been a guest science for children columnist for a major city newspaper. Father of two sons. I get to learn from, inspire, enthuse, and get numerous teaching ideas from my children as well as my students!
I create, develop, and orchestrate a combination of hands-on learning, higher level / critical thinking skills, experimentation, collaborative learning situations, creative writing, and visual arts--all with a sense of humor children love.
My honors so far have come from student, parent, and administrator accolades.
I have a Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction, plus 68 additional graduate credit hours in Education. My teaching certifications include Elementary Teaching, and Gifted Education. My Bachelor of Arts is in the social sciences.
I use my artistic ability in my teaching. All drawings in my Teachers Pay Teachers non-video products are my original artwork unless I state otherwise.
