ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Fun Fact: Our logo is our pet peacock, Periwinkle! We are a husband and wife team who are passionate about making students EXCITED about science. We both teach middle school science, but in different districts. Twenty years of experience each has allowed us not only to build up, but also test, a large range of resources. Everything we sell has been used in our classrooms, with diverse students, with success. We have hundreds of middle school resources, including Earth & Space, Physical Science, and Life Science. We specialize in individual print-and-go resources such as worksheets, activities, quizzes, and tests. We are constantly revising our materials as new standards and practices emerge. We encourage feedback to better meet your needs! In addition to teaching full time, we are also parents to 2 great kids, 3 dogs, 2 cats, and 2 rascal peafowl. Never a dull moment!
