Hello from the transplanted Oklahoman,
I am contributing editor of The Physics Front, part of the NSDL's Physics Pathway. The Front is a growing collection of resources for pre-college teachers of physical science and physics, with more than 1,000 items ranging from lessons and labs to computer simulations and student tutorials. We focus special attention to the needs of the new and crossover teacher. I'm a former middle school teacher, and frequently long to be back in the classroom. My husband and I recently moved back to the Dayton, Ohio, area to be near his family. We have two kids: Jeffrey, a college student, and Dougie, a kindergartner. I know.....bit of a spread there, isn't it?! Our youngest has autism, so I'm always on the lookout for educational materials that are appropriate for children with disabilities. Looking forward to all the collaborative opportunities on the MS Portal!
