About

My name is Mary and I am the proud mother of two small children. When I am not changing diapers, I teach elementary science to some pretty awesome 5th-6th graders.


I have worked at a small charter school for the last five years and been fortunate to be part of a school that is supportive of science education. I also create and sell science activities on TPT. Next year, I will complete my M.Ed. in Counseling.

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.

If you are interested in collaborating on a project or contributing to my “Teacher Talk” section, please email me at sockmonkeyscience@gmail.com.

Be sure to follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and TPT!
