profileI’m a stay at home physicist, adjunct professor and homeschooling parent.  I went to a rural school from K-12 and was bored to tears.  Now that I’ve been homeschooling for over 16 years (oldest son is a junior in college!)  I realize that I was homeschooled even though I attended public school.  Just about everything I learned was from reading books at home or helping with our family business, and just experiencing real life. I have a PhD in Physics and was a physics professor when my first child was born.  For the last 10 years or so I have been teaching science classes in my home for small groups of homeschoolers and I share what we do in these classes on this website.

I also have extensive boards on Pinterest where I put all the cool experiments and links I have tried, or want to try in class or with just my kids.

Check out my son’s blog, Spark Movie Reviews, its a good place to go when you’re looking for something to watch, he’s got reviews of movies and tv shows.  His blog started from taking the Movie Club class at Bravewriter.  [UPDATE: He now spends most of his time making music and you can check out his music on soundcloud.]

My older son inherited an old 8 inch telescope and posted about fixing it up and some of his astronomical observations, its called Ryglark Astronomy.   [UPDATE: He’s now a junior physics major at Montana State University].  If you’re interested in astronomy, I highly recommend looking for a local astronomy club. We’ve become very active in ours and have participated in outreach star parties at local schools and parks.

I have posted about my classes for the last 4 years, and though I’m still teaching, I won’t be posting each week since it would mostly be repeat information at this point.
