Welcome! 

Eighth grade honors science is a fast paced class in which students will master scientific concepts and engage with the curriculum through a variety of activities and labs designed to enhance their learning experience. Some of the topics that will be covered this year include Cells, DNA and Heredity, Molecular Chemistry, and Physics. This class is structured to prepare students with the knowledge and skills they will need to be successful now and in their academic future.  Students will also learn about current events in science so that they can more readily relate to this field of study and how it affects their lives and the world around them.

 

About Me

This is my 11th year teaching 8th grade science and my third year teaching the 7th grade STEM elective.   I grew up In Rhode Island and attended the University of RI where I received a B.S. in Environmental Science, and a masters degree in Education.  I absolutely love teaching science and getting kids engaged and excited about science.  I am married to my best friend and we have 2 children who attend school in the district.  In my free time I enjoy hiking, travelling and spending time with my family and my two puppies.
