About The Homeschool Scientist
Welcome to The Homeschool Scientist!
We are excited about science and want you and your family (or class) to LOVE it too!
After receiving my master’s degree in early childhood development and education, I spent several years teaching at a private church school. I then went to work for a biotech firm first in North Carolina, then in Boston, working in their laboratory sites across the United States, developing processes and computer systems to improve testing efficiency and accuracy in DNA laboratories.
In addition to running all things on The Homeschool Scientist, I am currently pursuing a post-baccalaureate in Biology, write a science column for Homeschooling Today Magazine, and write for the CTCMath blog.
With 20 years of teaching experience (homeschool and classroom) both in the United States and abroad, I have authored over 40 science kits and have coached and mentored robotics teams from elementary through high school. I served as a founding Board member for our state’s FIRST Lego League tournament and held the role of Judging Director.
I am a firm believer in hands-on learning at any age and want to dispel the myth that you or your students may have that, “I can’t do science.”
I’m also a part-time missionary, of sorts. During the last five years, I have made three trips to the same school/hostel in southern Asia. In 2019, I lived and taught in that same school. In addition to sharing the gospel, one of my assignments was to teach the children programming, which I did using Lego WeDo2.0 and EV3 kits.
Helping all students gain access to education is something I value. You will find that the materials we create are geared to be hands-on and flexible. Each child learns differently and at a different pace; we strive to remove frustration and provide each student the opportunity to explore and test their own ideas.
