What’s our focus?
In 8th grade science, students will use scientific investigations and activities to expand their critical thinking skills and master various science concepts in Chemistry, Earth Science, Physics, Astronomy, Life Science, and Weather.
In Intro to STEM class, students will use scientific investigations and activities to expand their skills in critical thinking, communication, leadership, and innovation.
My goal is for every student to excel both in and out of the classroom and to develop an increasing interest in science. Also, to develop students to be critical thinkers and lifelong learners who embrace diversity.
