As science teachers can we can spend a lot of time talking about science...

and writing about science...

and reading about science...

without actually doing much science...

What if we could reverse that? 

What if we could spend the majority of our time in the lab? 

Then, when we talked about science, 

it would be about everything we just did.

I started my career as a high school physics teacher. Then I entered the field of museum education at the National Air and Space Museum (part of the Smithsonian Institution) where I wrote science education materials and ran teacher workshops. When my children were born, I left the workforce and when they were little, our family got involved with a school start up. My children grew and with them, the school; I volunteered on a weekly basis, running science experiments for my son's class and joined the faculty as the middle school science teacher when the seventh grade was added. Now I write full-time, working to publish the curriculum I developed while I was teaching. Each online course is a unit of study from a hands-on, laboratory-experience perspective. Each activity has a video and written instructions so you'll be thoroughly prepared to teach them.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is this membership for?
This membership is designed for teachers to give them hands-on resources to teach middle school science.
Will this work for homeschoolers?
I think so, though my background is classroom teaching. It’s not designed like a plug and play course. It’s a collection of activities (written and video) that will help you teach the content.
When does the membership start?
This membership is a collection of video and written resources to use in your classroom. You can start as soon as you sign up!
Can I access these resources from my phone or tablet?
Sure! They work well on any device. PLUS, there's a free iOS app, called Teachable, that you might want to use.
Do I have to watch all of the videos?
Nope! You can watch as many or as few as you like. Some of us prefer to scan a written document and some of us prefer the details and visuals of a video. It's completely up to you.
Do I have to go in order?
Nope! You can use the lessons in any order—I always arrange them in a way I think makes sense, however since students in my classes worked at their own pace, they also tended to do the lessons in their preferred order. Within each section, the lessons progress from concrete to more abstract and from fundamental concepts to more tangential ones.
How long do I have access to the membership?
After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you maintain your membership - across any and all devices you own.
What if I am unhappy with the membership?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund. And you can cancel your membership at any time.
