Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!

I am teaching two levels of science this year so paying attention to the class period is important.  Parents, please know your child’s science period if you like keeping  up with what is going on in your child’s science class.  7th grade teachers have morning planning, and since I tend to change things slightly throughtout the day, my blog will not be updated until after bus duty.  I try very hard to have this completed by 5 pm if not before. If you are a person who does not want to waste time wondering, “Has she or hasn’t she updated her blog?”, may I suggest sunscribing to the RSS feed on the right side of the page.  The system will notify you EVERY time I update my blog.

If you have not already done so, please sign up for remind.
