Hello everyone, I'm a Middle School Science Instructor at my respected school. I provide learning opportunities through the use of hands on activities, STEM, and teacher facilitation relating to student discoveries in science. I'm currently a graduate of the Space Academy for Teachers (Huntsville, Alabama), and a seven year Teacher Liaison for the Space Foundation (Colorado Springs, Colorado). I'm a 35 year, U.S. Army Military Police veteran and someone who loves Science (Earth, Life, and Physical) and its components relating to both Theory and Law.
