I have been a classroom teacher for 32 wonderful years. I have taught everything from 1st grade to 8th grade, but the majority of my experience is teaching 5th grade science.
My classroom is noisy, messy, and full of curious kids who are learning by doing instead of by watching.
Teacher of the Year for my school district in 2000. Awarded the Jack Harvey Award
I have a BS in Elementary Education with a minor in Earth Science from Baylor University and a MEd from The University of North Texas. For the last 8 years I have been a member of a science teachers collaborative at North Central Texas College where I have continued to learn and grow with the assistance of an amazing group of science teachers in neighboring school districts.
I'm a 5th grade science teacher in a rural school in Texas.
