I've been studying science all my life. My father was a renowned herpetologist. As such, I grew up surrounded by animals, plants, and other life forms. I followed my interests in college by studying biology as well as education. I taught middle school science for 21 years, then worked as the middle school science education specialist for the State Department of Education in Alabama for 6 years. In retirement, I am still actively involved in many scientific communities, and stay engaged with groups such as the North American Association for Environmental Education and the National Science Teachers Association. 

In my classes, we adhere to the consensus of the scientific community regarding deep time, evolution, and climate change. I refer frequently to "breeding," and other terms associated with reproduction in animals in a frank and straightforward way.

I am passionate and knowledgeable about the study of life, and about passing on this passion to youngsters.

Kahoot! is a widely used educational website. I will provide a link to the site via the Zoom chat box. Students do not need to use a second device or split their screen. Kahoot is a timed, multiple choice game. The site does not collect, retain, use, or share students' information. Here is the link to their privacy policy: https://kahoot.com/student-privacy-policy/
