TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I love teaching K5 Science and with over 26 years of experience I still love what I do! I can't wait to share Science units, as well as Next Generation Science lessons, and activities with you. Our district is focused on STEM lessons and use of great short answers that can be integrated in all core areas. I have created lessons and units to help teachers fit more science into their busy day! Come join us in the Science School Yard!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a hands-on teacher, integrating the scientific process into FOSS and the new science standards...as well as adding more STEM activities... I continue to find ways to help teachers add more science into their busy day!
