Hey there! I’m Carrie and 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 nine-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 love helping new teachers in my school and wanted to make an impact on a larger scale. In my store, you will find my most effective resources from twenty years in the classroom.
I hope these resources that I’ve developed for Beakers and Ink will save you valuable time! Teaching is a demanding job and I want to make it easier for you!
