I have a geeky love for topographical maps. I used to teach orienteering. It was so much fun trying to find the best way from point A to point B.

Story

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.
