As soon as our founder Serena puts on her white lab coat she transforms into the mad scientist Dr. Sbswicts (Silly but serious when it comes to science). Just as her name suggests, she likes to have lots of fun but takes imparting the love of science VERY seriously! You could say she has science in her blood. The daughter of a doctor and a teacher, she combined both these worlds when she decided to become a science teacher from a very early age. Moving from the urban surroundings of birthplace in Newark, New Jersey to rural Alabama only made her more certain of her calling. Growing up surrounded by nature, she could hear the echo of life’s continuous question—WHY? She became ever more determined to try to find the answers. To that end, Serena has been working in the teaching and community service fields for over 20 years. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree from Georgia State University. Serena has experience teaching Science in numerous private, charter, and public schools in Atlanta, Virginia, and New York and has had the honor of educating thousands of children from a variety of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. She worked for 4 years for Georgia State Scholars & Leaders, was a lead teacher for 5 years for Mad Science of Atlanta, and worked for over 8 years in a joint home school, teaching science to students in grades Pre-K to 8th grade. Currently, she is in her 4th year as the Environmental Special teacher for grades K-4 at Dekalb Academy of Technology & The Environment. She also holds a 5 year contract with Drew Charter After School Program teaching K-5th grade After-school science workshops. Serena has also traveled extensively to a variety of countries including Mexico, Venezuela, Malaysia, England, and Syria.
