My name is Terri and I'm a high school biology teacher and the teacher-author and blogger behind the scenes at Strawberry Shake.
I've been teaching science for more than 20 years, most recently in a collaborative classroom setting. I've had the opportunity to work with several very talented and inspiring special education teachers, and thousands (gasp!) of students.
I like to have an engaging and fun science classroom. I hope that my students catch my enthusiasm for learning and enjoy their time with me. I've been involved in the development of science materials for Science Take-Out, and at Teachers Pay Teachers.
I live on Long Island, NY with my husband, two teenage daughters, two dogs, two guinea pigs, and a rabbit. We travel frequently to northeastern Pennsylvania, where I'm learning about mountain woodland ecosystems every chance I get. We enjoy hiking, kayaking, fishing and exploring our natural surroundings. It's been a lot of fun - so different from the Atlantic seashore and pine barrens ecosystems that cover Long Island!
I hope you'll follow my blog, join with me as I learn, and share your ideas, tips, and lessons for the classroom!
