Brief Biographical Sketch:

I know a little about a lot of things, and I love to use these tidbits of knowledge when I am teaching/learning with students in middle and high school. I am bringing my 8th grade daughter from Pennsylvania for her second year of Spark. She told me they were looking for teachers, and I thought, "Why not! I'll teach a class or two." She and her friends will be my Beta-testers for my classes! Maybe we'll bring one or two of them along. I'm looking forward to having some fun in the classroom.

H9369: Writing a One-Minute Film in Spark 2015 (Mar. 14 - 15, 2015)
Students in this 50-minute class will brainstorm, write, and storyboard a plan for a one minute film. You should come prepared to write! You'll leave with a story, and an idea of the images and sounds you wish to use to tell his or her story. We will not have time to shoot the one minute film during this session.

X9429: Food Fight: Generic vs. Name Brand in Spark 2015 (Mar. 14 - 15, 2015)
Everyone is a referee in this head-to-head competition between generic and name brand foods. If you are a participant in this 50-minute class, you will take blind taste tests of several food products. Then you'll total up your grocery bill and see how much, if anything, you would save by buying generic. If you are allergic to nut products, dairy, or gluten you should not take this class.

M9430: Imaginary Numbers- The Basics in Spark 2015 (Mar. 14 - 15, 2015)
Am I imagining things? An English teacher teaching Math? No, it’s really happening. This English teacher really digs Imaginary Numbers, and in this class she will share what she’s learned about them with you- from how they came about, to how they're used in the real world. We'll even do a little math. This is a basic overview of the subject. If you've never studied Imaginary Numbers but are curious about them, then this is the class for you.
