We have collective 40 years teaching middle school students. As well, our children are 15 and 12. For certain, parenting has been a wonderful teaching and learning experience! :) They're amazing young people!!!!! We met at a GLOBE science workshop (taught by Doug’s father). There is something to be said about two people having chemistry… sixteen years of marriage, two children and careers as public school science middle school teachers. We value each experience and strive to continually contribute to the betterment of our world. We both teach 8th grade science (Introduction to Physics, Introduction to Biology, Introduction to Chemistry, and Earth and Space Sciences).
In many ways, SCIENCE is our LIFE! We love to explore, question and wonder with our children and students. We have a quote in both our classrooms ~ a Chinese Proverb: I hear, I forget; I see, I remember; I do, I understand….. Science is worth the effort to understand...It's that wonder and curiosity of this great Universe that drives us to DO....to wonder...to experience....to advance. Our store is dedicated to activities and labs we've used that DO science--that help kids touch on the intangible -- the wonder of our existence.
Steph was honored as a 2010 Pennsylvania Teacher of the Year Finalist....It was a team effort! :) Doug, an avid space nut, was awarded a slot to NASA space camp (he'd be in the astronaut training program if it wasn't for kids::::parental sacrifice::::). While at Space Camp, he earned the Right Stuff Award.
