I taught math and science at a small, rural school in NW Colorado (CO native too); my favorite courses to teach are Earth Systems, Chemistry, Physical Science, Trig and Geometry. I appreciate good humor, good science humor is even better; and my goal is to focus on science (& math) literacy for all of my students, their families and my community. I left the public school classroom in August 2014 to earn my PhD. in Teaching, Learning, and Curriculum at University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL), which I completed successfully December 2017. I am currently a post-doctorate in Chemistry at UNL. I have co-authored a two-semester general chemistry lab manual with Tribal community connections. Additionally, we are sharing how we indigenized our lab curriculum through various professional venues. I am slowly working my way back home to Colorado to continue teaching and sharing with professional communities, particularly in science and science education!.

I really like having these resources in one place. The unit analysis is good, easily adapted to different grade levels and content areas.
