About

cartoonprofileI have been a high school science and engineering teacher for 15 years and have had the pleasure of teaching in many different subject areas in that time.  I find that I like to have variety in my day! So I will use this blog to share materials that I’ve created in an attempt to help out other teachers.  I would like to make sense of my extensive list of bookmarks by creating some lists of resources in different topic areas as well.

I am not a teaching guru or an expert in STEM but I know that a lot of us are searching for ways to improve and I have the following goals in mind:

  • Increase student enthusiasm and achievement in STEM topic areas.  We want them to choose this as a career!
  • Help other teachers by providing some resources, ideas, and hopefully inspiration for those days when you just need something fun to do!

One thing that I have to offer my students is enthusiasm for the topics that we are studying.  In my opinion that is the greatest motivator for my students to achieve.  Please explore the site and let me know what you are hoping to find by commenting below.

I’m not being paid to endorse any products or websites.  Any information or opinions given on this site are my own.  My goal is to help other teachers who are looking for ideas for their classrooms.  We all spend so much time developing our lessons and learning new things, this is where I share!

  1. Hi,

    I happened to chance upon your blog and found it very interesting!

    We have recently launched a science app that uses augmented reality to enhance classroom teaching. The app has 3D models for kindergarten to grade 12. I thought you might want to check it out and may be review it on your blog, if possible.

    It is a paid app(with a few models free) but in case you are interested in trying it out I will be happy to provide you with a free copy.

    The link to the app is:

    You can also search for the app on the app store as ‘Augmenter’.

    Do let me know if you would be interested. I am really Looking forward to your response.

    happy teaching!
