I am looking forward to a fun year of problem-solving, learning from one another, and hands-on exploration of scientific phenomena. Thomas Alva Edison once said, "I have not failed, I have just found 10,000 ways that do not work." In our classroom, we will discover that the study of science allows not just for intellectual growth, but for personal discovery.
A Successful Science Student:
Will enter our science classroom ready to learn with an open mind and a smile.
Will use their student agendas to mark down important dates (tests, quizzes, homework assignments, and lab projects)
Will keep an organized notebook where we will develop hypotheses, record our discoveries, and answer the Big Questions of each lesson
Will remember to show respect for themselves, their classmates, their teacher, and all living and non-living things
- Will check Google Classroom when they are absent for homework, missed notes, and other relevant announcements
Above all, a successful student will not be afraid to ask for help.
Office Hours: I will be offering "office hours" for students who need extra help on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 15:00 to 15:50 to allow students to make up missed labs, ask for extra help, and offer study tools for science success. Breakfast hours will be held on
There will be no availabilty on Wednesday and Friday afternoons for Office Hours, and I will be unavailable for breakfast help on 9/28/19, 10/11/19, and 6/12/19.
