Sarah Benton Feitlinger is a mom, former PreK-6th science teacher, curriculum writer and developer, blogger and kid's science news author. With over a decade of experience teaching in informal settings such as environmental education centers and museums and in the traditional classroom teaching and developing curriculum for Preschool through 6th grade science she has a passion for sharing science with others, particularly children. Believing very strongly that science is something that should be accessible and enjoyed by all, she now puts her Masters degree and experience in science education to use writing her blog, "Share it! Science", and writing science articles and curriculum for sites such as DOGOnews and Shmoop.com. When she is not crafting new ways to share a science concept, she is exploring the world with her family, out in the garden, or taking a walk in the woods.
