Hello Mavericks, I am a 7th grade science teacher here at Smart's Mill. Years ago, I retired from infectious disease research to become a stay-at-home mom. Now that my kids are older, I've moved into teaching.
I love showing students just how awesome our world is through the field of science. We cover everything from "Why is the sky blue?" to "What makes a plant a plant?" and many topics in between. In class, I focus on providing a fun and structured learning environment that includes lots of movement breaks (because sitting still for 90 minutes just isn't good). I also ensure that each student feels accepted and valued for their specific gifts and talents.
