I am excited about the 2018-2019 school year! I spent my summer engineering my own projects - including things we might use in class. I am worn out working by myself. Now I'm ready to let students try building.
A brief bit about me... I grew up in a very project-oriented home. Science was not a subject area in school. It was the way we lived. My family was constantly experimenting through my parents' different household, outdoor, and mechanical projects.
My adult life has reverted back to projects. Different car, robot, and minibike projects are my distraction and always have me looking for better ways to build things.
Now I get to work on science projects as much as possible. I get to share these projects with 100 + students.
Students do not sit still very long in my classroom. There is too much planning and building to do!
