Welcome to Amy Brown Science! I am delighted you stopped by my blog for a visit.
If you are curious to know a little bit about me, read on. If you hate looking at other people's photos, you better head back to the home page. Quick!
Teaching high school science is fun, fun, fun!
My love is the laboratory, and I have my students in the lab as much as possible.
My students excel on end of course exams and the AP Biology exam, for which I am very proud, but my greatest joy in teaching is that moment when I realize I have turned a kid on to science! I get very excited when teaching, and nothing beats seeing your students getting excited along with you. I am thrilled when my former students return home from college and tell me how much my class has helped them.
My teaching career has been successful, and I have enjoyed every minute in the classroom, but the thing of which I am most proud is my family. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 32 years, and we have two absolutely incredible daughters. I thank all of them for indulging me as we waded through swamps, searched bogs for pitcher plants, hiked farther than anyone wanted to go, snorkeled in freezing water ....
Whenever I get "itchy" to get outside, they gladly put on their hiking boots and say, "What Mom adventure are we going on now?"
A special tribute goes to my Mom. She was a biology teacher before me, and she is responsible for all that I love about nature and science. She is the yardstick by which I judge myself, and I can only hope that I have measured up.
And, finally, here is just a small glimpse into some of my favorite places. I have been lucky, indeed!
