Welcome to 8th Grade Science! After 13 years teaching 7th Grade Science at HMS, I've finally been promoted to 8th grade. We will hit the ground running right away since almost all of my students had me at me at one point or another. Expect new subjects, new ideas, and some new classroom practices, but we'll use use lots of familiar strategies, as well. I would like EVERYONE, if at all possible, to get signed up for Quizlet (see my main page) because this year will by necessity be more vocabulary intensive. I am looking forward to a great year!
We have a lot of science to cover and must also get busy preparing you all for high school next year. My hope for each of you is that you will be ready and prepared for 9th grade when you move up next year.
