Welcome to 7th Grade Science!

 

I'm so excited to be teaching your child science this year! This is my 14th year teaching and 8th year teaching at Drexel Hill Middle School. I attended Cabrini University for both my undergrad and graduate. I'm married and have two beautiful little girls.

I'm looking forward to a great year using our new science materials!! We will be using practices of investigation and understanding scientific inquiry, guided by knowledge, observation, ideas, and questions each student will be the scientist in the learning environment. We will be connecting to each other and the world around us as we solve real-world problems. You and your child have online access to our new textbook too! Please be looking for the log in information for http://carolinascienceonline.com 

Your child will be graded using assessments (quizzes/tests/ investigations (labs)) , homework and classwork and graded on a point system. The ESchoolPLUS Home Access Center can be accessed through the UDSD website. Students grades will be updated by teachers in a timely manner. I will also be using my teacher web page, along with emailing weekly with assignments, plans and news.

I am looking forward to a GREAT year with your child!

Feel free to contact me via email with any questions or concerns!
