The upper grades (5-8) is where I have spent most of my career, with a current placement in 5th grade. I am a strong advocate of interdisciplinary instruction which I promoted in my lessons even as I taught middle school science. In addition to teaching, I recently received my Master's degree in Education with an emphasis on curriculum and instruction. I am excited to share some of my lessons with you! You will likely find that most of them are driven from a science theme but involve aspects of writing, math, and engineering. With Common Core well under way and an ever-increasing number of jobs in the science and technology fields, innovative science lessons that include reading, writing and math have never been more important!

My passion is designing curriculum units that are thematic, inquiry-based, and interdisciplinary. Currently I am designing such lessons for the middle school (6-8) level. Join me on my journey as a curriculum nerd on my blog... www.thecurriculumnerd.com
