I am about to begin my 12th year teaching. In this time, I've taught scientific principles, Life Science, Earth Science and Physical Science to an age range of 10-14 year olds. I enjoy doing out of the box lessons, including making my own digestive system and creating superheroes using genetics. Please feel free to let me know if you have questions and I hope to hear from you.
I prefer a hands-on approach to teaching, sprinkled with stories and question and answer sessions. I like the students to discuss and create to target all the key areas of their brains. Science is about experiences and our reactions to them.

Graduated in 2004 with a Bachelor's from UNLV in Elementary Education. Currently in the process of getting my Masters!
In addition to my daily school year experience with kids, I have a 4 year old at home that I like to test things out on. If you see some things that seem a little young for middle schoolers, you'll know why.
