I’m a science teacher. I didn’t immediately embrace this identity, as I began my career a passionate English teacher. It didn’t take long before I was bouncing back and forth between English and science classrooms, and I quickly grew to love both equally. ... I am always looking for opportunities to incorporate new literacy skills into my science classroom.
