About

Hi, I’m Dr. Erica Colón

Dr. Erica Colón is a National Board Certified Teacher with over twelve years of teaching experience in 6th-12th grade secondary science, including Physical Science, Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science, and Marine Science. In 2008 Erica earned her Master’s in Educational Administration but quickly realized her passion was working with science teachers. Erica returned to earn her Doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus in science and technology, and in 2012, she founded Nitty Gritty Science, LLC, where she continues to design and publish science curriculum which can be found in thousands of classrooms around the globe!

Dr. Colon also organizes and hosts the Champions For Science Virtual Conference Series for science educators, where extraordinary leaders, creators, and innovators in science education come together to focus on the most important matter – our students –the future CHAMPIONS FOR SCIENCE!

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!

“This is a truly comprehensive and impressive resource. Thank you for your time and the energy you put into creating something so huge! Wow!”
