About

my family

My name is Trisha. I am a mom, a wife, a teacher, a follower of Christ, a writer, a science nerd, and a student of life.

Inspiration Laboratories is my creative outlet. The goal is to encourage children’s learning through play. My son, Aiden, was born in December 2009. My daughter, Lily, was born in April 2014. I take my lead from them and guide their learning based on their interests. I hope you’ll be inspired by what we do and try things out for yourself. Take a look at the top 10 preschool learning activities and the top preschool science activities from 2014.

I have been a teacher most of my life (in one form or another – nanny, elementary age after school care, education specialist at a zoo). I taught high school Biology and Oceanography for 5 years. Now I work mostly from home writing curriculum, managing a few websites, and working on my graduate degree in science education. I teach an undergraduate biology lab as well as an online high school Oceanography course.

Science education is one of my passions. You’ll find lots of science activities at Inspiration Laboratories. I share suggestions on how to incorporate the science learning into your activities. It’s never too early to start building a foundation for science skills.

Reading and sharing children’s books is another one of my passions. I recently started a new site that combines my love of science with my love of reading. Read Science shares science activities that are based on children’s books.

I also enjoy sharing my thoughts on various topics – my faith, parenting, design ideas, the occasional craft for grown-ups, and recipes.

I hope you will follow along as I share with you my adventures, how we navigate through life, and how we should trust in God through it all.
