I am currently a senior at Wright State University Lake Campus where I am majoring in Early Childhood Education. For the 2019-2020 school year, I will be student teaching in first grade. I plan to graduate in the spring of 2020 with a degree in Early Childhood Education and with an ECE Generalist Endorsement in Grades 4-5. I enjoy antiquing, riding four-wheelers, mushroom hunting, fishing, shopping, and spending time with my family and friends.

Tue, May 21, 2019 12:43 PM in STEM in the Classroom

Mon, May 20, 2019 4:28 PM in Lots of Science, Not A Lot of Time

Students are actively engaged in learning about the different phases of the moon by using Oreo cookies to construct each phase of the moon. I have attached a link to a free resource by Rockin' Teacher Materials-Hilary Lewis on Teachers Pay Teachers.

Mon, May 20, 2019 2:32 PM Rocks Review
This is the first SciPack I have completed, and I found it to be a great refresher and review on the different types of rocks and their classifications.

I will definitely be keeping this as a resource and referencing it in the future.

Mon, May 20, 2019 2:25 PM Flow of Matter and Energy in Ecosystems Review
This is the second SciPack I have completed, and I found it to be a great refresher on matter and energy flow in our ecosystems.

I will definitely be keeping this as a resource and referencing it in the future.
