My name is Brad Hoge, and I'm the one writing most of the blogs on this site. I have a Ph.D. in paleoecology and an M.Ed. in curriculum and instruction. I teach science education, geology and biology at the University of Houston Downtown, and I've taught at every age level at one point in my life or another, including preK, elementary, middle and high school. I also worked at Houston's Childrens Museum for a short time. I was a full-time parent for nine years, and I'm a poet, by hobby. This odd background gives me a unique perspective on science education, and I'm not shy, so you never know what you'll find here.

Come on, let me know what you think!
