Hey there! I'm Jessica, Author of Spectacular Science. Welcome!

I’m so glad you stopped by to check out my site! It’s filled with tips and resources designed especially for middle and high school science teachers. But before we dive into all that, let me share a bit about myself…

  • Mommy to a sweet little boy: My son Mason keeps me on my toes and fills my days with joy. As a work-at-home mom, I get to balance my passion for education with the precious moments of raising him.
  • Wife to my childhood sweetheart: We’ve shared countless adventures together, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
  • Lover of Trader Joe’s, yoga, coffee and chocolate ice cream: These little indulgences keep me balanced and happy.
  • Florida resident with New York roots: While I now enjoy the sunshine state, my heart still holds a special place for the hustle and bustle of New York.

MY TEACHING JOURNEY

My passion for science education began in 2010. Over the years, I’ve taught a variety of subjects, including Earth and Space Science, Environmental Science, Marine Biology, and Science Research. I have experience teaching at varying levels, from college prep and honors to gifted students and those with special needs. Each class, each student, and each lesson has shaped me into the educator I am today.

After a rewarding time in the classroom, I shifted into an administrative role as the Dean of Students. This experience provided me with a broader perspective and a different lens on teaching middle and high school students. It allowed me to understand the diverse challenges students face and the importance of addressing their academic and personal needs holistically.

Now, my journey has taken another turn since I had my son, Mason. I’m cherishing this special time with him while channeling my passion for science education into creating resources for teachers like you.
