Hi, I’m Dr. Erica Colón

In 2012, I started Nitty Gritty Science as a way to share my passion of teaching and provide the solution. I currently design and create curriculum for science education with three things in mind:

students’ multiple learning styles

high-quality resources that meet needs of science standards and expectations

saving teachers time so they can get back to doing what they do best – TEACH!

“I was a new teacher that got hired about 10 days before the school year started! If it wasn’t for this packet, I don’t know how many hours I would have spent at school trying to put stuff together. I would recommend every teacher, no matter how many resources you have to take a look. Well worth every penny!!!! My superintendent loved what I was doing in class and asked me to present to other teachers. I made sure to show the packet that I bought from here. Thank you so much!”
