Classes We Offer

Here are some awesome STEM classes we put together for after school.
We design and write our own custom curriculumn.

Niecy Will Train You

No worries! I will train you

I’ll set you up for success. We provide the materials and curriculum. We also make changes together as needed. The content is never something you need to be an EXPERT in. We want amazing teachers with classroom management skills, Engineers with a Ph.D not needed! We have time to teach you the subject matter but not how to teach!

I was a classroom teacher for 3rd and 4th grade for 9 years. Micah and I have grown Nerding over the last five years and have an excellent personal one-on-one training plan for each teacher we add to our team. We discuss class topic options, what your interests are, what your strengths are, and support you through the whole process!
