Hello Mavericks, I am a science teacher's here at Smart's Mill. Years ago, I retired from infectious disease research to become a stay at home mom. I have 3 children, and we stay busy with swim team, basketball, and LAX during the school year. My kids are good at sports, and I'm good at carpooling.
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 fun). I also ensure that each student feels accepted and valued for their specific gifts and talents.
