We are a mentor-mentee team of life science teachers located in Suwanee, GA. Melodi has been teaching for fourteen years, and Sarah is currently in her second year. Since working together, we have embarked on a journey to create fun and interesting phenomena-based NGSS lessons that align with life science standards.
We take great pride in creating and revamping material to be developmentally appropriate, yet still rigorous for middle school students. Most of all, we want our students to have FUN learning science! Our teaching style could most easily be defined as goofy! We love memes, silly videos, and corny science puns. Everything you see in our store are resources we actually use in our own classrooms! We do not post anything without having taught with it ourselves, and frequently we use our classroom as a "test lab" for new ideas before editing and posting our resources for sale.

Ms. Shanks and Mrs. Stream are not only science teammates, but best friends! We love working together, we love our students, and we are passionate about creating awesome resources for our science classes! Where'd the name come from?! Ms. Shanks is lovingly referred to as "Ms. Shankles" by many students and colleagues, so when we were looking for a store name, it felt only natural to fuse our last names/nicknames together. And so was born "Strankles Science". Questions? Message us or email firstname.lastname@example.org
