I became a fan of Looney Labs games about 5 years ago, looking for new ways to get my fifth grade students excited about mathematical and critical thinking. Starting with Pink Treehouse, I began introducing Looney games into my classroom, first as a free-time activity and later in order to explore concepts of strategy, geometry, and probability. Soon my class was playing Aquarius, Pink Treehouse, and Fluxx and we even had Andrew Looney pay a visit to our classroom. We also use Are You the Werewolf to teach team-building and communication skills (which is more effective than you would ever imagine!)That same year I started a family game night for our school at the local comic shop where we play all kinds of games.
I am a fifth grade teacher at a charter school in Baltimore City. Our focus is on environmental science and character development, teaching what we call the "whole child". I also play drums and bass in a few world music-style bands. I have two cats named Heinlein and Buttons.
