I’m a middle school science teacher with a passion for bringing science to life in the classroom. As a busy teacher, wife, and mom of a spunky ten-year-old, I know how much time it takes to create content-rich, engaging resources. I’m here to share my best science resources and classroom strategies.

My goal is to save you time so that you can live your best life – both in and out of the classroom!


A little bit about me…. I was a middle school special education teacher for ten years and needed a change. I was thrilled to be offered a sixth-grade science job at my school. Trading piles of paperwork to teach in a core content area seemed like a no-brainer. I couldn’t have been more wrong!!

As a new science teacher, I struggled to find resources to fit the needs of my students. 

Reading passages were rarely one size fits all, note pages were confusing, labs didn’t offer the differentiation that I needed to support my students and their diverse needs.

I spent hours every day learning new science content and creating and tweaking resources that I knew would work for my students. My husband, a high school science teacher, joked that he should have gotten a bonus those first few years because he spent so much time brainstorming with me!

In August of 2019, I opened my store, Beakers and Ink on Teachers Pay Teachers. I want to be able to make an impact on a larger scale and help teachers save time so you can live your best life!

Let’s connect!

I love to share quick tips and activities that you can use in your classroom!
