    Introduction: Greetings! My name is Steven Parker. Thank you for also inspiring adolescents as a science teacher and/or as a parent. I have a storied history of creating and publishing innovative, classroom-tested, inquiry-based, challenging and user-friendly activities for the sciences.

    Experience: I have twenty-three years of experience teaching science at the middle and high school level. I student taught in Pharr, TX, before moving back to Wisconsin. For the last two decades, I have been the only full-time science teacher in our small rural district. I currently teach Earth Science, Physical Science, Biology, Chemistry, Advanced (AP) Chemistry, Human Anatomy and Physiology and Field Ecology.

    Education History: Bachelor of Arts at St. Olaf College, 1995, Masters in Education, Professional Development at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, 2001

    Teaching Style: I am a global thinker and inherently emphasize the connectedness of the big picture to help students conceptualize the relationship of terms in and among units. In addition to the core topics in science, I teach grammar, history, math skills, Greek/Latin, study skills, test-taking skills, and life lessons on a daily basis. I immerse my students with hands-on opportunities and teach them to become independent problem solvers. I teach with empathy and strive to promote a growth mindset.

    Honors/Awards: Presidential Award for Excellence in Math and Science Education (Nominee, 2015) The National Society of High School Scholars Teacher of Recognition (2016) Agriculture in the Classroom Teacher of the Year (State finalist, 2006) Kohl Fellowship (State finalist- 2014, 2015) Cloverbelt Scholar Teacher of Recognition Award (2015), three time keynote speaker at commencement.

    Publication History: I joined Amped Up Learning with 18 years of publishing experience. I have published books, science kits, and/or games through the following international corporations: Teacher’s Discovery (MI), Science Kit and Boreal Laboratories (NY), Lab-Aids (NY), Flinn Scientific (IL), and Publisher’s ExpressPress (WI). Three of my science games are copyrighted in the National Library of Congress. Over 15,000 copies of my reusable games, books, and science kits are in classrooms across America!

    • All of them include a key with the answers in bright blue or red font
    • I show the work for each problem in the answer keys of the problem sets
    • All of my problem sets include an equation bank at the top of the student page
    • Many include a word bank or a series of word banks as an optional accommodation for students who may need them
