We spent some time studying Leonardo da Vinci and some of his works this school year, in Middle School Science and Mathematics.

It all started with teaching and learning Basic Geometry. I believe the students had a lot of take away from this study.

One thing, they paid more attention to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and their names.

Leonardo da Vinci used his remarkable artistic talent to draw his subjects with almost photographic precision—like this drawing thought to be a portrait of him as an old man.

The Education STREaM, Inc. - Small Business - Family - Teaching and Learning - TUTOR-TALK
Introduction
I am a wife, mother and entrepreneur with a new office, outside the home. YaY! Academic Coach: Teacher, Tutor, Mentor, Educator Professional Developer and Tutor Trainer. I love to think, read, learn and develop educational products - The Thatch Method for Teaching and Learning.

My passion is Education. Always searching for innovative ways to reach each student. I spend my weekends reviewing apps, Internet tools and Reading articles across the curriculum of Science.Technology.Reading.Engineering.and.Mathematics (STREaM). During the week, I answer questions or Academic Coach students from grades K-20 - on different social media, Google Documents and in person locally. In most cases, I get paid in thank you's! Do I want to get paid, of course, I strongly believe that those days are near.

Research Area(s): How people learn Science and Mathematics, Tutoring, why tutoring works - What are the differences between a tutor and an Academic Coach?

Specialization(s): Physics and Engineering Education, Tutoring/Academic Coaching - I am an Academic Coach. Most people know what a tutor does...

Company:
Academic Coach: Teacher, Tutor, Mentor, Professional Developer, Tutor Trainer

Address: 102 S. John Sims Parkway, Valparaiso, Florida 32580

What I post about:
If you are new to my circles or just circled me, this is what I post about:

1) Education (Online and Offline)
2) I started my own company in 2006. +The Education STREaM, Inc. 
3) Tutoring and Academic Coaching K-20
4) My daughter, Elke, who is my muse for designing and implementing teaching and learning across Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering and Mathematics (STREaM). She is eight and in the second grade. We started teaching and learning across the curriculum in summer 2010. We use Science as the conduit.
5) Our pets, one cat and two eastern box turtles. We say Science is Live In and From the Thatch Household. At one point, we had over 100 fresh water snails. We stopped naming them after 15. Now, we have a frog.
6) Things that make me laugh out loud.
7) When I see a great post, I share it+++
8) I carry my camera and photograph images and animals on all my journeys to and from the house. If I post photos of animals and you ask a question or questions --- I will respond through a new post, on that topic, and take you through a lesson they way I teach and learn with my daughter and students.
9) Hemorrhagic Strokes/Strokes

One night, I posted a photo of a frog clinging to our window and an audio of the frogs in the neighborhood park. Someone asked a question on how to tell a male from a female frog, which is referred to as sexing.

Happy ++++ing with me ....
Bragging rights
I survived high school in the USA, Brooklyn, New York, We have one daughter who on most days behaves live 5 children., I survived two hemorrhagic strokes on the 6th November 2003 after giving birth to my daughter. I went back to school one semester later to work on completing my Ph.D. I have hunted crocodiles with a bow and arrow in my younger wilder days.
