I have my National Board Certification in Science - Early Adolescent. I have taught for 20 years. I taught six years in a title 1 middle school and six years at a college (ESL). I currently teach fifth grade science in Texas suburbia!
Kids would just say that my class is fun. I am very focused on what I want my students to learn then I create an experience that teaches those concepts.

I travel extensively with my daughters. We travel 'on the cheap' and see amazing things along the way. We went to China this summer to walk the WALL! I love camping, cycling, running, and even painting! https://smithofscience.blogspot.com/ studentchoicecenters.com
