I have a BS in Education with endorsements in Middle School Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and Mathematics. My Masters is in curriculum design of science subjects. Dave has a BS in software engineering and an MBA.
A bit of history
Pandaia Projects is the name that we call ourselves whenever we work together on projects. The name arose when we found that we often work on big projects that at first were conceived to be much smaller. Typically, in the messy-middle part of a project we'd console outselves with the words: "Paula-and-Dave-at-it-again" This little lament was eventually shortened to “P and D-A-I-A”… or Pandaia. After I moved from the classroom into university grant positions, Dave and I collaborated developing databases, writing science curriculum, creating STEM activities, and analyzing data for several projects.
