I am currently halfway towards completing my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential at San Diego State University! I received my Bachelor's degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder in Communications and Technology and Media. I'm a student teacher of 6th grade in the Chula Vista School District. It's an exciting time for science instruction and i'm glad I get to be a part of it!

A great way to take science home is for students to track their water usage. Attached is a great graph in which students can record the number of times they use something and calculate how much water they use in a week. Great for conservation and human impact lessons!
