Currently a high school science teacher working with 9th and 10th grade students. Started my career as a professional educator in Fall 2012 (3 years and counting!). With my freshmen, I teach introductory units including: 1. chemistry - properties of matter, states of matter and phase changes, structure of the atom, the periodic table, acids and bases, carbon chemistry, polymer chemistry 2. electricity and magnetism - 3. earth science - rocks and minerals, rock cycle, plate tectonics, earthquakes, volcanoes, interior structure of the earth, erosion and weathering, glaciation 4. astronomy - motions of celestial bodies in the solar system, planetary science, evolution of the solar system, properties of stars, stellar evolution, structure of the universe During the summer, I have worked with gifted and talent students at a 3-week long residential summer camp where I taught microbiology, as well as a humanities course exploring the concept of immortality.
Laboratory and group-oriented work, typically in settings of 2-4 students per group, varying levels of guided inquiry, hands-on and minds-on experiments and simulations

Of the resources supplied, I will try to offer both PDF and Microsoft Office document versions, the former so you can have the original that I had made, and the latter so that you can make any adjustments to your own teaching styles or curricular necessities. Take what I've made, use them, improve upon them, and then pass them along to colleagues so that they may do the same. I have zero interest in making money off of fellow educators, there's no need to reinvent the wheel. Let's make the wheel better together! Though I teach both general science (9th grade) and biology (10th grade), I will likely upload many resources related to my general science course.
