I have taught over 5,000 students on Outschool! I love to connect with students through one of their favorite activities- Minecraft. I bring enthusiasm and excitement to these topics and show students how science relates to real life. I have experience using and teaching from the Minecraft chemistry features. I am a homeschool mom with ADHD teaching my own students with autism and other learning differences. I have experience working with students of many different abilities and would be happy to accommodate your student if needed. Please reach out with any questions!
