Introduction

After spending more years than I care to count in the biological sciences I’ve decided its time to branch out and try something new. What drew me to this course is that it is a science course for teachers. I know there are ways teach science that get kids interested in science and I do try in my classroom but I don’t always succeed. I’m hoping that I come out of this course with a better understanding of geology and earth science as well as some lessons that will be easy and fun for the classroom. I’m a fifth grade teacher in Noorvik and I’ve lived in the NW Arctic for about twenty five years. When I’m not in the classroom I’m out running our dog team. Thanks for having me.
