Passionate Teacher bringing 7 years experience in middle school science. Strong subject areas include Earth-space science, physical science, social science, and technology. My goal with every lesson is to find new and interesting ways to incorporate Discovery Education (DE) Techbook with technology to keep students so engaged that they do not even realize that they are learning. Adapted DE lessons into SMART Notebook 11 and PowerPoint to produce complete classroom lessons.
