6th Grade Earth Science Teacher-4 years at Eleanor Roosevelt Middle School

My two children are 17 months apart so when I had my second son, Davis, I decided it would be best for me to take a one year leave of absence and then I returned to teaching at Kennedy part time for one year. Since there wasn't another part-time gig available for the following school year I pursued a job sharing position at Eleanor Roosevelt Middle School in 6th grade Earth Science. I job shared with Amanda Benson at Roosevelt for four years. We embedded technology into the earth science curriculum by developing technology rich lesson plans together.
