After spending more than 20 years in the food and beverage industries, I became a teacher 3 years ago. I love science, learning and technology. I am doing my best to bring myself into the 21st century for myself and my students but the learning curve is very steep......... I am definitely intrigued with the whole concept of the flipped classroom and want to learn more.
