Laurie Henry is a veteran educator with 20+ years of experience teaching preschool, kindergarten, 4th and 5th grades as well as high school biology. Laurie was awarded “Teacher of the Year” from her district in McKinney TX in 2005. She is GT certified and holds a degree in Biology from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. She ended her public school career as a district elementary science coordinator to start her own business, Trinity Science Solutions LLC, where she teaches earth and space science in schools on a contract basis using her huge inflatable models. With her “Big Canyon Balloon”, Laurie takes students into the future to show the slow changes of the earth that result from weathering, erosion, and deposition. Her other model, “Orbit Earth Expo”, uses a 16ft diameter globe and a 4ft moon to teach the relationship between the earth, moon, and sun. Laurie has also self-published a picture book, "Maribel McTuft's Grand Adventure" and a set of three science resource books, called, "Center on Science", as well as has created 4 science themed board games.
Science is taught through experiences that bring students to a place of wonder and discovery! My job it to be a tour guide on the journey.
