Biology, chemistry, and physics, oh my! Do you ever feel like Dorothy in the “Wizard of Oz” as you walk down the road of your homeschooling journey, wondering and even worrying about science classes and experiments and lab reports? You are not alone as you consider how you will incorporate a vigorous study of science into your homeschooling program. Other parents just like you are looking for a way to take on middle and high school level science courses in a way that serves their students now and in the future.
We will be offering biology and chemistry utilizing Apologia’s “Exploring Creation” books and support materials. Expect your students to delve into the intricacies of God’s creation while doing weekly experiments together with other students. The purpose of the hands-on lab experience will be to reinforce and deepen understanding of the concepts presented in the course. Students will be taught how to write a thorough lab report for each experiment.
So why go it alone when you can partner with a seasoned science teacher and your student can join with other students on their adventure in discovering more about God’s creation in a challenging yet encouraging environment!
Julie received her B.A in Zoology from the University of Maine in 1981 and subsequently moved to Orlando, Florida, where she began her teaching career in Orange County Public Schools. After a short stint there, she taught middle and high school science classes in a local private Christian school for five years before becoming a stay-at-home mom and homeschooler.
Over the next 20 years, she and her husband David home educated their four children, during which she privately tutored students in math and science. In addition, she has taught homeschool classes in general science, physical science, biology, chemistry and anatomy.
