About Us


We are an American born family of four, Curtis (the father), Mishele (the mother), Aaron (oldest son), Elijah (youngest son), and Albie (the dog). We live a pretty adventurous life traveling the world as international educators. To date, we have lived and taught in the United States, England, Germany, and Costa Rica. We are very passionate about education and so have dedicated our lives to helping others. We hold advanced degrees in education, received several significant awards, and held various positions in academia. Between us we have almost 40 years of educational experience teaching both on ground and online science and math to middle, high school, and college students, developing curriculum, researching and writing books and articles, and traveling the world. We are never sure where we will wind up next, which is what makes life exciting (and sometimes stressful). This is our story.

Some stuff that we offer:

1. Guest blogging: Either an original article on your topic or an existing one

2. Speaking engagements: We will gladly talk about family travel, education, global issues, motivation

3. Consulting: We can help you on getting started on your adventure, educating your children, or starting a blog

    I have a great pet story and photo I’d like to submit, but I couldn’t find a way to attach a photo. Is their an e-mail address I can send it to?

    Hey! This is Jacob Buzza from last year’s Chemistry class. This is the only way I know to contact you. If you remember the chemical reaction we did last year that included color changing for a set time cycle, could you please tell me how that was done? If not, that’s okay. Live long and prosper!

      Hello Jacob!
      Good to hear form you. Oscillating chemical reactions are rare and cool, only abut 5 to 6 are known to exist. All of them, unfortunately, require very specific chemicals, which can be hard to get. Here is a link to the easiest one to do at home: Alternately, you can purchase a demonstration kit from Flinn Scientific ( that has everything you will need ($35-$60). I hope that helps. Also, my wife teaches at the school, so you can always have her pass anything on to me. Take care!

    Hi! I hope you’ve rethought how “ethical” zoos are, especially after the airing of Tiger King and the exposure of how for profit zoos will always result in mistreatment.

      I have not seen the Netlfix original series Tiger King. I am not sure I want to from what I have heard. Apparently, it shows the more ugly side of humanity. Established non-profit zoos, like the San Diego Zoo, are modern day arks. Their Center for Reproduction of Endangered Species (CRES) and their captive breeding program have been phenomenal and crucial to the survival of endangered species. In addition, they allow animals to be ambassadors of their species to the public. People will care and help these beautiful creatures if they can identify with them. Good zoos offer an incredible opportunity for inter-species contact.
