Miss Elizabeth Block: Upper School Math/Science

Greetings!
My name is Elizabeth Block.
I am from Portland, Maine, and I graduated from Penn State with a B.S. in Geo-sciences in May. I am so blessed to have this opportunity to teach your child math, science, and religion in a way that encourages curiosity, discovery, and a deeper understanding and appreciation of God’s beautiful and intricate creation. I am very excited to roll up my sleeves and get to work on providing the best learning experience possible for your child.
