17 years middle school science teacher. I have taught 8th grade physical science for 10 years, as well as, 7 years of 7th grade. In addition, I also tutor students who are learning disabled (dyslexia) in reading using an Orton-Gillingham based program.
Hands on is my favorite way to teach science.

I am originally from Boulder, Colorado so I love to get outdoors and hike etc. It is great being in Arizona where I have an abundance of very cool geologic areas to teach about in my earth science classroom.
