I have been super busy teaching school and working on teaching materials. As a first year teacher I struggled to find handouts that seemed to relate to the students, so I started drawing the concepts I teach to help the kids learn. I found a website called TeachersPayTeachers that allows teachers to post their ideas online and share them with other teachers that are interested. I visited my mom one weekend and asked about a name I could call myself. She told me of a childhood friend of hers that she called “doodles”. I had been a doodler all my life and now was applying it to science notes, so that was it…I would call myself Science Doodles! My mom gets the credit for giving me two names! Thanks Mom!! I love you! Most nights I stay up in the wee hours of the night drawing and doodling and making resources for my students, and I love it. My daughter Paige has been a huge help to me, I couldn’t do any of it without her help. Thanks Paige! I love you! I love teaching and I love loving fifth graders. They are so fun and each day is never boring! I feel blessed and happy and grateful for my new job. If you know a teacher that teaches science, and would like a free handout about the water cycle, send them to my website:
About my garden! We have had the longest, coldest wet winter in a while here in Texas. I know I will get no sympathy from those still getting snow or freezing temps. I think spring is just around the corner and I am so excited to plant!! My sugar snap peas are still going as well as broccoli, cabbage and cauilflower. I plan to plant very soon and will put up lots of pictures!
Wishing everyone a happy and warm spring!
