I started teaching in high school as a piano instructor and fell in love! I teach science to grades 4-8 at a small school in Ohio, so I have a good understanding of how the Ohio's version of the Next Generation Science Standards works to build student understanding from one grade to the next.
I believe interdisciplinary connections, especially with the arts, make science more memorable, meaningful and fun for my students. When I write a song, I try to make it as short as possible to get in all the important details, so that it can be a really useful memory tool for the kids.
