“When you’re in love, you want to tell the world.” – Carl Sagan
Happy Darwin Day, everyone!
Nearly three years ago, I began a life-altering adventure as a high school math teacher at ACPA, the Arts and College Preparatory Academy. Since then, this school has become my second home, these young people my second family. I’ve been so lucky to work and learn with them, and I’m so grateful that I’ve been able to spend this time learning what it takes to be a classroom teacher.
Now for a new adventure. When ACPA begins its next school year in August, I will be in a brand new classroom, helping welcome ACPA’s first group of seventh and eighth graders. And I won’t be teaching math, but instead will become ACPA’s first middle school science teacher!
I adore mathematics, with its precision and logic, but those of you who know me know that science is my passion and my love. I’m so excited to take what I’ve learned about classroom teaching these past three years and translate it to the subject I’ve been preparing to teach, well, all my life. All my experience, all my joy, all the passion I hope to share with this brand-new group of learners is bubbling up in me and I can’t wait for the next school year to begin. There are starfish everywhere!
My first book, called The Turtle and the Universe, was published by Prometheus Books in July 2008. You can read about it by clicking on the link above.
