Welcome to 7th Grade Science!


I'm so excited to be teaching your child science this year! This is my 15th year teaching and 9th 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!! 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 textbook too! Please be looking for the log in information for Our main platform this year, 2020, will be SCHOOLOGY! Please make sure you and your child are familar with Schoology.

Your child will be graded using assessments (quizzes/tests/ investigations (labs)) ,  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 our Schoology 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!
