Emily Cotman is a teacher, by trade and by nature. While earning her B.A. in Linguistics, she made the terrifying realization that the only thing she excelled at was being enthusiastic about science. After lamenting to her supremely patient advisor the all she wanted to do with her life was “be Bill Nye the Science Guy,” she got a job at the Center of Science and Industry in Columbus, OH, and has never looked back. Emily currently teaches a preschool class for Bright Horizons Family Services. In her spare time, she celebrates science on her blog, A Dynamic Mess.
