I was a 1st grade teacher for many years. One of the main science topics I teach every year is all about insects. I am passionate about insects, animals and nature. My husband and I have a few bee hives of our own on our little farm. I have learned so much about bees over the years. I am excited to share that knowledge with young learners!
