About Lindsay Hopkins

Lindsay Hopkins is a zombie. Zombies eat brains, right? And that’s one of Lindsay’s favorite things: getting inside the brains of Discovery Educator Network STARs, learning from their amazing minds, and sharing that information with other educators. So, if digesting brains makes her a zombie, then she is happy to be undead.
