I love history! My favorite books are all historical fiction. Had I not pursued a degree in science – I likely would have considered a career in history. History, as a school subject, is often overlooked in the elementary years (with the exception of a…

In addition to reading about history, one of our favorite annual experiences is a living wax museum. This year, we'll be jumping into National History Day.

An art journal is a journal in which you combine art and words to express yourself. That’s it. It’s not complex, and there really aren’t any rules for art journaling. It’s all about self-expression. Art journaling has a long-standing artistic tradition.…
Art journaling is a long-standing artistic tradition; a record of your daily thoughts, travels, dreams, or lessons and memories that you’d like to keep.

Story
Tagline
Science educator & homeschool mom passionate about family life, traveling, and staying active.
Introduction
I am a science educator with extensive experience in both formal and informal settings. I presently homeschool my two children and share our homeschool experiences on my website, Eva Varga.  I strive to encourage families to incorporate science into their curriculum and provide free online courses, lessons, and printables. I also teach professional development courses through the Heritage Institute and write a middle level secular science curriculum called Science Logic.  

In addition to my work in education, I am an athlete, competing in Masters swimming events and marathons. I hope to someday complete a Half-Iron triathlon and an ultra-marathon. In my spare time I enjoy reading, traveling, learning new languages, and above all spending time with my family. ♥
Bragging rights
In 2001, I was awarded National Board Certification (Middle Childhood Generalist) and during my six years in the public school classroom, I received more than $20K in grants and awards.
