About Me

I teach 6th grade science in a small town outside of Richmond, VA. I returned to teaching last year after many years away from the classroom.
I earned my Bachelor's degree from Samford University in Birmingham, VA in 2004. After graduation, I taught 4th grade for one year and then spent 18 months living in Morocco and China.
While overseas, I worked in a preschool and taught English to college freshman. In 2007, I began work on my Master of Divinity degree only to learn that my passion was to go back into teaching. I went ahead and completed my degree in 2010 but decided not to go into church work and instead started looking for a teaching job.
When I'm not teaching, I'm spending my days taking care of my 1 year old daughter Blakely and spending time with my husband.
Even though some days can be tough, I definitely love what I do!

  3. Hi Lori,

    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. 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:



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

    happy teaching!
