About the Author:

I started as a high school physics teacher before spending ten years at the Smithsonian writing educational materials for the National Air and Space Museum. Later our family helped to start a school for which I wrote the science curriculum. When seventh grade was added, I joined the faculty teaching middle school science and absolutely loved it! Now I write full time and volunteer in the classroom often. Curriculum development, a common thread throughout my career, is still a favorite pastime.
