This is my 20th year of teaching with experience in grades 2 - 5. I have trained and coached teachers in brain-compatible instruction in K-12 and have a passion for kids. My master's degree is in Science Education and have worked training many pre-service teachers in methods classes as well as in my classroom.
I'm of the progressive philosophy....hands-on, inquiry- and project-based learning. I like to have fun, fun, fun!!!
Published in Social Studies and the Young Learner, and I also have a chapter in a best practices in science education series
