My name is Mary and I am the proud mother of two wild little boys. When I am not changing diapers, I teach technology to some pretty awesome 7th grade students and do part time counseling at our Elementary.

I have worked at a small charter school for the last six years and been fortunate to be part of a school that is supportive of science education. I also create and sell science activities on Teachers Pay Teachers. I just completed my M.Ed. in Guidance and Counseling (yay!). This year I will be transitioning into a new role as a Technology teacher and Guidance Counselor after 6 years of teaching future scientists, but I will continue to make science resources while also creating for my new ventures!

I consider myself a life long student. I’ve studied art, photography, nursing, education, and worked in more industries than I care to mention. I am naturally curious and eager to learn, which is probably why teaching science became the career choice that finally settled me down into adult life.

The ultimate goal of my blog is to help both new and veteran teachers be the best they can be! We are stronger when we collaborate, and I will be providing resources and advice that have helped me be a better teacher. I also hope to provide a platform for other science teachers to share their opinions and passions.
