I am a mom to 3, a runner, a lover of books and being outside! I grew up in Virginia Beach, VA and attended Virginia Tech where I earned my B.S. in Biology and M.A. in Secondary Science Education. After finishing grad school I began teaching middle school science in South Carolina. While there I thought 6th ,7th and 8th grade science and also had the opportunity to teach in a magnet school for kids gifted in the arts where I was trained in arts integration. We then moved to Virginia where I taught high school Chemistry and Biology. I am currently a stay-at-home mom to a 7 year old daughter and 5 year old twin boys, which is a whole different type of adventure!
