My name is Vanessa Jason. I am a Massachusetts native and have taught biology, chemistry, and physical science. My husband and I have three children and live in the Boston area. My passion is creating engaging and effective resources that will promote scientific literacy and curiosity.
Why Biology Roots? Though I have taught all disciplines of science, biology is my passion. I grew up on a farm with 10 acres and was always exploring the nature all around, digging in dirt, finding vernal pools, saving salamanders, fishing, raising animals, helping animals (assisting in live equine births, dressing wounds, caring for eggs), and familiarizing myself with the plant life (some species of plants are toxic to the animals). So, though I love all things science, biology is my roots!
I have had the pleasure of working with many wonderful teachers who have inspired me over the years. Every year I try to perfect my style, this seems to be a motivating factor. After all, if you’re going to do something, you might as well do it right!
I decided to create Biology Roots to share my material with other teachers. You will notice that some items are paid items from my TeachersPayTeachers site. This ensures the quality and integrity of the items. If you do purchase an item from TpT, you will have access to it and all of its future modifications. I also offer lots of “freebies” and goodies (especially for newsletter subscribers)!
