I thought that I would take a moment to share a little bit of information about myself.
I am a science teacher. I have taught many different subjects, from Earth Science, to Biology, and Environmental Science.
I absolutely love science. With a passion. I think that science gives us the tools we need in order to unlock the world around us: Why is the sky blue? How does a ship float? How come, if I drop a bowling ball and an apple from the same height at the same time will they both hit the ground at the exact same moment?
I think that everyone can understand and get science. You don't have to become a quantum physicist or the next Dr. Barnard. No one is asking you to do that. But you can tell me why the tides go in and out.
As a follow up to the previous statement, I think that science should be available to everyone. You can't understand or get something if you can't find it.
I don't think that asking for help is a sign of weakness. All it is is a sign that you need help, that you don't quite understand something.
I think that humor is good. There is no need for a further explanation, other than the fact that I will try to include a "Friday funny" science joke once a week. I can't promise that they will all be good.
I am a bit of a procrastinator. For that, I do apologize. If I disappear from time to time, it is not that I have forgotten about you, it may just be that I found a new exciting book that I got hooked on, or a project, or someone's tumblr, or a shiny object... However, I can promise you that I will try my best to keep this to a minimum.
This seems to me to be a pretty good list, so I will end it here. Except for one last thing: if you think that there is something that you would like me to discuss, or help you to better understand, please, let me know.
