The Story of It’s Not Rocket Science®️ and Secondary Science Simplified™️ [Episode 1]


Click below to hear about Secondary Science Simplified:

Welcome to the very first official episode of Secondary Science Simplified! I am so thrilled and humbled that you’re joining me on this podcast journey. My goal for this first episode is to give you some insight as to who I am, my background in education, and how in the world I started my business supporting other secondary science educators.

This may come as a big surprise, but I didn’t initially go to college to become a teacher. It kind of happened unexpectedly, but I’m so glad it worked out the way it did. My experience as a secondary science teacher taught me so much, like how to work alongside others on a team and how to get creative when resources were lacking. 

Throughout my years as a teacher, I also quickly learned how demanding the job is and how difficult it can be to balance your work and personal life. I made it my mission to learn how to achieve a sustainable work/life balance, and guess what? I did it!

Now I’m passionate about sharing my tips with you. I’m here to show you how you can simplify your life with practical and easy-to-implement strategies. 

If you have a specific challenge that you’re facing right now, send me a message on Instagram @its.not.rocket.science. I always enjoy hearing from you and would love to feature your question on an upcoming podcast episode.
