Description

Class Experience

As a certified Earth and Space Science teacher, I have over ten years of science instruction experience. Teaching Astronomy is a true passion of mine, and I am enthusiastic and engaging in my instruction style. I've been selected by NASA to present on its behalf to other Earth and Space Science teachers and at national educator conferences. I know you'll love my course!

It is my mission to help students become lifelong learners. I develop a good rapport with each student with my sense of humor, enthusiasm, and the ability to relate scientific concepts to students' everyday lives. While many students enter my class thinking science is boring, it is rare that they leave still believing so. I've won numerous awards and accolades for my highly-effective teaching strategies, and I know your young scholar will thrive in my classroom!
Students will receive supplemental activities, note-taking guides, short project assignment rubrics, and optional lab and demonstration directions that correlate directly with each lesson. Students should be prepared with notebook paper, pencils, scissors, glue, and coloring pencils.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This is an age-appropriate course that focuses on astronomy and space exploration. Please contact me prior to signing up if you have already taken my Earth and Space Science course!
