Hello, I am Mrs. Leazier. I have taught science (biology, chemistry, earth/space, forensic science, and middle school) in Washington County Maryland for 24 years. Currently, I teach science in the distance learning/virtual platform. I am an advocate of both STEM and NGSS. I have my BA in Secondary Education, my MS in Forensic Science, and a Graduate Certifcation in STEM. I believe in a student-centered classroom and expect excellence from all students, regardless of their backgrounds. I am passionate about teaching and spend countless hours developing learning plans that include relevant hands-on activities that are student driven. I enjoy developing curriculum that promotes student engagement and relates to phenomena and real-life scenarios. On a personal note…my hobbies include roller sports, coaching, camping, and family vacations. I am married and a mother of three...I have two sons and one daughter.
