Hello! I am a 5th grade science teacher in Northwest Ohio. I taught special education for 5 years, ELA and science for a few, and have been teaching departmentalized science for the past 7 years. I also teach an enrichment group portion of our intervention/challenge/enrichment time at school.
Inquiry based, I also love to build technology and the arts into my lessons. I have a simple but fun attitude towards instruction, why make things harder than they need to be?!
I attended the Exxon-Mobile Teachers Academy in 2012. I also attended Honey-Well Space Camp for Educators in 2013. I am also Lunar Certified through NASA.
I have a BS in Elementary and Special Education and a MS in Curriculum and Instruction both from BGSU in Bowling Green, Ohio.
I LOVE teaching science, it is the highlight of my day. I am always looking for new ways to assess and inform my students. We have a lot of fun each day, but with purpose. I am married and have two little girls. Their own education is also teaching me volumes about what it is like to be a parent of a school-age child! :)
