We are a mentor/mentee/best friend duo from the suburbs of Atlanta. We are both full time teachers! While we specialize in middle school life science, we have experience in elementary school and earth science as well. With eighteen years of combined teaching experience and an insatiable passion and quest to always find and create better resources, you are in good hands with Strankles!
One word: FUN! We strive to create learning environments where students feel like family and the activities that they participate in make them realize that there is a much bigger world outside of the science classroom. Real-world phenomena is at the heart of everything we do, and it makes students look forward to our class everyday. Nobody ever has to ask "Why do we need to know this?" because that question is answered every single day in the way that we teach science!
No awards. We work in a district of excellent teachers, and we're proud and humbled to say that we have not beaten anybody out for any of those awards. We just love what we do and work our butts off for kids- that's enough award for us!
Who cares? In case you do, we are working on our Instructional Technology graduate degrees (master's and specialist, respectively).
