Instead, learners log into the classroom every week and click on a...
I have a Bachelor's of Science degree in Biology from Oglethorpe University and and a Masters of Arts in Teaching in Secondary Science Education from Georgia State University. I have been teaching sciences to inclusion classes for 16 years to grades 7-12, and have certifications from the states of Georgia and California. I am deeply knowledgeable on the structure of the Next Generation Science Standards and best practices of science instruction.

No live meetings, and maybe some time outside of class.
All classes are based on the accepted consensus of the secular scientific community, and may include discussions of evolution by natural selection, the cellular and hormonal mechanics of sexual and asexual reproduction, and other aspects of studying living systems. All third-party resources are used in a way that does not collect any Personally Identifiable Information. Science Magazine, Smithsonian Magazine, and Scientific American are used for supplemental readings. There are no prompts for or need to create an account for any third-party tool.
