Hello!  Thanks for coming by my blog!

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!

  1. Hi,

    I happened to chance upon your blog and found it very interesting!

    We have recently launched a science app that uses augmented reality to enhance classroom teaching. The app has 3D models for kindergarten to grade 12. I thought you might want to check it out and may be review it on your blog, if possible.

    It is a paid app(with a few models free) but in case you are interested in trying it out I will be happy to provide you with a free copy.

    The link to the app is:



    You can also search for the app on the app store as 'Augmenter'.

    Do let me know if you would be interested. I am really Looking forward to your response.

    happy teaching!
