For those of you new to the DEN blogs, my name is Lance. I work for Discovery Education and am one of the authors of the Science Connection in Action blog. We will have several other classroom teachers as authors soon, but I am happy to get things rolling. I started my career as a teacher at Julia de Burgos Bilingual Middle School in the School District of Philadelphia.
I taught a variety of subjects and grade levels, but my two primary (i.e., favorite) subjects were science and technology. Pretty good fit for what I am doing now.
Some of my most memorable experiences with my students involve science experiments that didn’t quite go as we planned. We always had a lot of fun (see my classroom pond to the right and its ruler, Copernicus the Duck, below), and I am thrilled to be able to work with
a product like Science Connection. I look forward to hearing from you and can’t wait to see the creative ideas we will share together.
