Welcome to my scientific world!
I teach Earth and Space Science and Physical Science classes. No matter which class you are enrolled in my goal is to make each class as fun,informative and challenging as possible. So find a desk, strap yourself in and lets take this ride into science!
This year we will be studying a variety of topics in class. I expect you to participate in all class discussions, complete homework, daily assignments and do your very best in my class. Feel free to ask or talk to me about any problems you may have. Together lets make this a very fun and productive classroom experience!
