Welcome parents, teachers, and educators! I’m Sarah. I am a licensed middle school science teacher, with an M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction. My teaching experience includes several years in experiential/outdoor education as well as time as a public school middle grades science teacher. In a world that is filled with more and more screen time, it is my pleasure to share here lessons and ideas for engaging children in science and the natural world.
My family and I live on a small homestead, where we raise chickens, goats, and grow lots and lots of food. I have three young children who spend a great deal of time outdoors. As a family we enjoy hiking, gardening, swimming, fishing, snowshoeing and skiing, reading, and art. You will most likely see how much my family life influences my educational ideas and writing in this space.
Our farm blog can be found over at: ourhillsidehomestead.blogspot.com. I periodically update the homestead happenings over there. I also share about all of the making that we do over there. Along with writing about farm-related stuff on the Our Hillside Homestead blog, I am a contributing blogger for Mother Earth News.
Thank you for visiting! Please feel free to visit the contact me page to send along any questions or ideas!
