“Charismatic, energetic and passionate are just a few words that I would use to describe Cheska.”
– Program Coordinator Assistant, UNLV Leadership and Service, Las Vegas, Nevada
My name is Cheska Robinson. I am a science teacher living in an old farmhouse at upstate New York with my husband, my dog, and a flock of chickens. When I’m not teaching in the classroom, or writing about science education and technology, you will find me in the backyard pretending to be the Chicken Whisperer.
“Robinscience” is a teacher blog where I share my learning experiences trying new strategies, methods, and tools. I hope that my posts will help me share my passions for science education and technology with others, and help educators grow in their own teaching journeys.
I have presented as a conference speaker for the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) at Boston (2014) and Chicago (2015). In the conference sessions, “The Social Science Teacher” (2014) and “Social Media for Teachers” (2015), I helped teachers learn how to use social media to create professional learning networks. In addition, I also write the monthly column, “Listserv Roundup”, for NSTA’s middle-level science journal, “Science Scope”.
