TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I volunteer in the classroom at Birches School in Lincoln, MA (my child's school). Some of my materials are used there. I've taught custom science lessons to K-3 students at Birches, and numerous science and math lessons to my child at home.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

MIT 1991

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Professionally, I am a digital designer (graphic and interactive), software engineer, and author. My book, "Designing Interfaces," has taught thousands of adults and college students about interaction design. But at the moment, my real passion lies in teaching children about science, math, nature, botany, food, and engineering. And that's why I'm here!
