Teacher Expertise:
I have always had a love of space, from the moment my grandpa, an amateur astronomer, let me look through the 10-foot telescope he built all by himself, to watching shuttles & satellites lift into the sky, and watching some fall back to the earth. I have spotted some of the largest dust storms to hit Mars, and have enjoyed looking at the various craters on our Moon and seeing the rings around Saturn, all from my own backyard in Missouri & while using other telescopes my grandpa and I have built together. I have never ceased my exploration and search, looking to the skies to watch for eclipses, comets, and so much more! My love of all things Space has only increased with time, and I feel it is the next great wave of the future! As a teacher with a Master’s Degree in Teaching & over 30 years of experience working with children of various ages, and more than 6 years teaching students about Space, as well as other Science-related subject-matter, I love sharing my knowledge with the next generation. My hope is to instill the awe-inspiring beauty the Unknown Universe holds, as well as encourage students to dream and believe! I hope to see you in class as we explore the Universe together!
There is no homework for this course, however, teacher will add additional videos, flyers, color pages, notes, a game, and more after the class in the Outschool classroom for those students who truly want to learn more.

There is no formal assessment for this course, however, the teacher will utilize a variety of methods to determine that learning has occurred, including: interactive questions, in-class review, and other fun, interactive discussion, and activities. After class, a Review Game will be available for students to test their knowledge.
20 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parental Guidance:
Learners will need their cameras turned on for each class. Parents may need to assist their child in learning how to "mute & unmute" themselves, as teacher will mute students at times during the "teaching" portion of our class & then ask them to "unmute" to answer questions, discuss mysteries, & interact with the other learners during the interactive, conversational, and review portion of our class. This allows each learner the opportunity to hear what is taught, while still allowing for questions, interaction and such.
YouTube video clips will be shown at times during our class to allow learners to visualize the topics being covered. The links to these videos will be available & posted after the class for parents & learners to view/review as desired.
