Welcome to Science!

"All the world is waiting for you...
And the powers you possess!"
         (Wonder Woman theme)

**scroll down for calendar

No, this is not a class to train terrorists or to appeal to your child's "darker side"--this is a class geared toward bringing out the best in your child while encouraging and fostering a desire to know more than the basics.

I will expect a lot from your child, and I hope that you will be involved in your child's school year by helping study, volunteering for class activities, checking homework, and checking the planners on a regular basis.

This is a quest for lifelong learning, so get ready for an adventure!


BIOGRAPHY OF A SUPERHERO

I am originally from Meridian, Mississippi, and I taught 7th, 8th,
and 9th grade science there for 10 years.

I moved to Texas in 2003 and began teaching at Moorhead.

I am a proud graduate of the University of Southern Mississippi -- B.S. in Secondary Education and Zoology.
I also have a Master's degree (M.Ed.) in Secondary Education/Marine & Environmental Biology from the University of West Alabama.
In 2005 I earned National Board Certification in Early Adolescent Science.

This is my 23rd year of teaching science!

My home is full of animals--I have chickens, dogs, cats, and fish--so I understand that sometimes home can be a noisy place to be!

Tutorials will be offered for students who need extra help--all of the 7th grade science teachers will provide tutorials.

My tutorials time will be on TUESDAY
MORNINGS from 7:15-8:15 am. Students will be picked up IN THE CAFETERIA.

If your child needs to stay, he/she can stay with any of the science teachers--they all offer tutorials (some are in the morning; others are in the afternoons).


My hope is to help unlock the "superhero" in your child!

I'M HOPING FOR A FANTASTIC YEAR!!!!
