I taught fourth grade for one year and fifth grade for five years. Now, I work with teachers on improving science education through workshops and my blog.
I differentiate instruction as often as possible with small learning groups and stations. I try to incorporate labs and investigations, vocabulary study, and discussion about concepts into each science unit.
Yet to be added
I have my B.A. from the University of Texas at Austin and have my M.A. in Curriculum and Instruction from UTSA.
