Erin Scroggin

My name is Erin Scroggin and I am 23 years old. I am in my fifth year of college - majoring in elementary education major with a math minor. I work at Whiskey Road and Blessed Sacrament daycare. I live off campus in a house with three of my friends from high school. I have a younger brother, who is engaged to one of my best friends, and three step-siblings. I enjoy deer hunting with my dad, golfing with my mom, hanging out with friends, traveling, attending/tailgating Iowa State football games, and reading a good book. I hope to one day teach somewhere in the South - Tennessee, Georgia, or Texas - and then return back to Iowa after a few years to be near my family again.

Something that always peaked my interest in science (because I was/am not really a fan) was when the teachers figured out what my interests were and made it relatable in the lessons. I was big into marine biology when I was a kid and we did units on the oceans. Also, making sure the activities were pretty hands-on is important for both males and females.

This is such a great idea to get literature intertwined with STEM. Also, with the statistics showing females have more of a lack of interest in STEM subjects than males, this is a great way to get girls interested!!

Kahoot is awesome! I have seen it used in other classrooms before as a pre-service teacher and I can't wait to try it in my own classroom soon!!
