Class experience

US Grade 2 - 5
Basic zoology of the Bats (Chiroptera), Parrots (Psittaciformes), and Bees (Anthophila); defining the evolutionary biology concepts of convergent vs. divergent evolution and homologous vs. analgous structures
I am a zoologist who enjoys sharing my love of the animal kingdom with lifelong learners of all ages. I've also been playing video games since the first gen when they all used to look this pixelated... ;) 

I also have nearly two decades experience as a home education advocate, including homeschooling my own children from preschool through high school. I am a big proponent of flexible learning, individualized education, and supporting fellow neurodiverse learners, so please don't hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or requests for additional resources.  We all learn in our own way and time, but everyone should have the chance to learn about how cool animals are!
Homework Offered
Additional resources will be posted in the classroom after the live session ends to help further your understanding and study of both the species and concepts introduced in class -- students are encouraged to view these and use the classroom board to ask any additional questions they'd like about the material.
